2020 has been a tough year for education in our small town and across the globe. Here at SchoolPower we’ve stayed focused on the heart of our mission: Laguna Beach students.

Last week, we deployed over 85 gift packages to families in our district who are facing financial hardship. We are committed to partnering with LBUSD to assist in covering basic needs and supplemental educational resources for students in need.

Through our COVID Impact Fund, we’ve awarded over $25,000 to teachers and coaches who are engaging students in creative ways. Teachers like Ms. LaPierre who, armed with craft supplies and stamps, mails out handmade “Desk Dojo” characters to motivate her second graders in Virtual Academy.

With your help, we can do more in 2021. Your gift will make a difference for Laguna Beach students in the new year and beyond. Don’t forget: charitable contributions made for the rest of the year may be eligible for a 100% tax deduction under the CARES Act legislation.

On behalf of the SchoolPower staff and board of trustees, I thank you for your support and wish you a very happy holiday season.
