SchoolPower donors have provided significant long-term support for LBUSD athletics, including over $335,000 from the Hexberg Family Foundation in the past 10 years. In addition, individual SchoolPower donors designate thousands of dollars yearly to support athletics boosters and programs. These gifts have helped transform the LBHS athletic program into one that regularly competes successfully against teams from much larger schools.

“The Garmin watches allow our PE students to do real-time tracking of their pace and distance, and track progress towards personal goals. We also use the watches for accountability in games like capture the flag to keep students more active, engaged and aware of their activity level.”
Steve Lalim, PE Coach | Thurston Middle School
