LaSalle Language Academy Playground Campaign

The current outdoor facilities at LaSalle have proven to be dangerous and no longer serve the needs of our students or community. Our goal is to build a new outdoor campus, that includes two new age specific playground areas, a multi-purpose turf field, and updated hard surface areas.

LaSalle is a Level 1 school in need of a Level 1 facilities. The total estimated cost of this project could be as much as $2.0 million. We have the amazing support of Alderman Smith and CPS which is getting us close to making the next phase of this possible.

This is where our LaSalle community needs to rally together to help our children today and in the future. We can do this for the good of all the amazing people that make up this school community and surrounding neighborhood.


We just learned that CPS and the City of Chicago has officially approved the $1.5 million dollar contribution towards this playground initiative for LaSalle. This is big news!!!

But we still need to do our part too.

LaSalle has committed to help fund the remainder of the budget through our legacy brick capital campaign. Our goal is to secure $500,000 in individual, business, and corporate donations. As you can see by the thermometer outside the school, we are well on our way.

Up to this stage we have only been accepting pledges for the program that can be paid off in the coming months. We can now also start accepting donations that would go towards reaching our goal. And of course any amount will make a difference.

We need to act quickly. We need commitments, pledges, and donations before February 2, 2019. CPS will only build a playground and turf field based on the money that is available for this program. If we want to realize this dream for all we need to step up and help in any way we can. This is OUR chance to leave a lasting legacy on the school for generations to come

And to help make this a little easier, we are able to offer installment plans to those who might need it.

This Playground is now on our shoulders to make the best impact for all. We get one shot to do it right. We need all of you. We know that we can do this together.
