Connect with fellow parents and SchoolPower supporters as we come together to raise funds to enrich the educational experience and support the well-being of LBUSD students. This year’s theme “Above & Beyond” celebrates the innovative programs and exceptional opportunities within our small school district.

The event’s online silent auction will include a range of tempting products and unique experiences generously donated by local businesses and families. Anyone – attending the event or not – can participate in the auction. Attendees will be encouraged to raise their paddles to fund the yearly Fund-a-Need initiative, which supports SchoolPower’s key programs including SchoolPower Grants, the After School Program, and services provided at the Family Resource Center.

If you have already made a donation and would like to increase it to include tickets, simply donate the difference to annual campaign. We will total your contributions for the school year. Please email info@lbschoolpower.org with any questions.
