Friends of Lusher Helps Bring Education Beyond State Funding…
Lusher Charter School prides itself on reaching beyond a state-funded education for our students. We provide a comprehensive arts program from K-12th grade. Our sports program is thriving, reaching state playoffs in various sports. Our academics are stellar and one of a kind. Students work with NASA, take courses from Tulane, and get admitted to top universities throughout the country. The Class of 2015 earned $22 million dollars in college awards and scholarships.
Past Lusher Pride campaigns raised more than $200,000 and the money has gone to supporting every Lusher student in some manner. One of our key projects, working with the Lusher PTSA and the Whitney Bank Foundation, was the Willow Street Playground completed in January 2012.
Money raised will be used for large projects such as the soon-to-begin Freret Street lunch terrace and Lions Gate Theatre renovation. We also use funds for faculty Professional Development within and beyond our walls, as when we sent the JCC faculty to the National Association for the Education of Young Children conference in Orlando, FLorida. Funds also went for football helmets for Athletics and cameras and dance lockers for the Arts. Perhaps another playground on another campus is in our future!!! Who knows? The annual giving campaign allows us to dream big, complete large scale projects, and build partnerships within and throughout the community.
Please give generously and encourage your Lusher family and friends to give also. Every family, any amount, every year!
