Our schools are experiencing many of the same issues that today’s businesses are facing.
Businesses are struggling to recruit new hires, retain current employees and provide development opportunities to ensure future readiness. Lakeshore Public Schools are also dealing with similar issues, which is why the Lakeshore Excellence Foundation has committed to raise funds that deliver projects to address these challenges while positively impacting students, staff and our community.
In 2022, LEF will begin supporting three, new major projects: Technology Refresh for our elementary students, New Teacher Recruitment and Current Staff Development through Professional Learning Communities – PLC’s.
3 NEW MAJOR PROJECTS
Stadium Speaker Project
The new stadium speaker system offers a much more balanced, clear, ‘full’ sound for both announcements and music. The star spangled banner has never sounded better! In addition to the main speaker in the north end zone, a speaker was added to improve audibility at the concession stand. Updated technology also allows staff and coaches to control the sound system remotely when needed.
Lakeshore Community Auditorium
LEF chose to fund the auditorium improvements because of the reach and impact. The auditorium is used by students, staff and the community.
Reading Matters is a comprehensive overall improvement to the reading curriculum for grades K-12. The goal is that every student will read at their grade level, find personal joy and interest in reading, and realize the benefits of reading in their life-long pursuits.
STEM – Science, Technology, Engineering & Mathematics
The STEM project complements the 21st Century Learning Centers project, extends the concept of our existing Math/Science Center to all students, and fosters excellence and innovation in the areas of study that have made the U.S. a world leader.
21st Century Learning Centers
By transforming our libraries into 21st Century Learning Centers, we created information hubs that promote collaboration and creation.
