2021 LFCS Jog4Tech surpasses goal by more than $15,000 for a total of $73,000 raised!!!

During the month of February, the Patriot Legacy Education Foundation held a school wide fundraiser at LFCS called the Jog4Tech. The goal was to raise $55,000 for the ongoing technology needs of LFCS. Specifically, the school needs to begin replacing outdated SMART Boards in every classroom. Each LFCS family was asked to send out 10 or more Pledge Requests to their family and friends asking them to donate to our cause. Pledge Requests included a personal note from the kids as well as a photo. The requests were sent as emails or text messages to family and friends using the Pledge Star website. As pledges come in, the classes begin to rank based on how much money they have earned.

This year, students who sent 10 or more pledge requests got an LFCS drawstring backpack. Top earning classes got ice cream parties or pizza parties. We also gave out some AMAZING prizes to the top earners in each grade level, and recognized the top earners in each class at our Trimester assemblies.
