Mission Statement
We are dedicated to enhancing excellence for our children by providing
additional funds and resources for L.R. Green School
.


Thank you for supporting our Family Movie Night!  A great time was had by all, and we look forward to a great year with all of you!

The next Community Partners Booster night will be at Menchie's Frozen Yogurt (349 W Felicita Ave, Escondido) on Wednesday, September 24, 2014 from 3-8pm.  Come on by for some delicious frozen yogurt.  A portion of your purchase will be donated to our school!

Why do we have a Foundation?

(or "Why Doesn't L.R. Green Have a PTA?")

L. R. Green used to have a PTA. Parents paid "dues" to join & up to 45% of that money went to the National PTA. There were also numerous restrictions on how PTA-generated funds could be spent.

In order to keep every dollar raised here at L.R. Green, a group of concerned parents & teachers formed the L.R. Green Educational Foundation in 2003.

The Foundation's goal is to raise money to fill the gap between today's school budget & the education our kids need. The money we raise pays for art & music, P.E. equipment, library books, computers and printers in our classrooms, and learning resources and testing assessments.

It is not called a PTA, but it serves the same purpose, with the bonus of greater flexibility and impact for L.R. Green. Please help us provide your child  with the best possible education.  Board meetings are open to all parents.  Your input is welcome.


The L. R. Green Educational Foundation:
  • Is a tax-exempt 501(c)3 corporation whose sole purpose is to raise money for programs at L.R. Green School.
  • Is a 100% volunteer organization. You are a part of the Foundation as soon as you enroll your child at L. R. Green. You don't have to "join" or pay dues.
  • Has a Board of Directors made up of L.R. Green parents, that distributes money based upon input from parents, teachers & our administrators.
  • Sends over 98% of funds raised directly back into our school.
  • Raised over $40,000 last year through our fundraising activities.
