#GivingTuesday is a global giving movement that has been built by individuals, families, organizations, businesses and communities in countries around the world. Millions of people have come together to support and champion the causes they believe in and the communities in which they live.
Once again, the LEF will be participating in Giving Tuesday, and this year, we’ll be highlighting the physical education program in the Ladue School District. Did you know that our district is one of the few in the country that still offers daily P.E. for students? P.E. sustains students’ healthy growth and development, helps relieve stress and anxiety for children of all ages, and enhances students’ ability to concentrate and maintain focus by improving neural connections in the brain.
Our goal is to raise $1,000 for each school in the Ladue School District, for a total of $8,000. An angel donor who believes in the importance of P.E. for student health has pledged $1,000 in matching funds, but we need your help! Your Giving Tuesday donation will have a huge impact; we plan to combine the $8,000 with funds raised at Innovation Celebration: Sports Edition, our annual spring event, to enhance the P.E. programs at all Ladue Schools. (Innovation Celebration will also support all of our sports teams, which have grown from the strong foundation of curricular physical education, as well as the LEF’s grant program. More details to come!)
Please mark your calendars for Giving Tuesday on November 27 and for Innovation Celebration: Sports Edition, on April 12, 2019.
Thank you for supporting the students of the Ladue School District!
