About this Campaign



Dear Neighbors,

The COVID-19 pandemic has dealt a heavy blow to our schools and our students but as the country gets back on its feet, we believe that LASD can emerge stronger than ever. To that end, we want our schools to have the flexibility and the resources they will need for the 2020-2021 school year*. That will require community support, however, as our educators and our kids enter their brave new world where a lot remains unknown and subject to constant change and new challenges. In consultation with the teachers, staff and administrators in our District, your gift may be used to help with:

  • Purchasing PPE (Personal Protective Equipment) like masks, thermometers, hand sanitizer and cleaning supplies
  • Increasing technology options and availability for students and teachers, with a special focus on supporting our students and families who are facing economic hardships right now
  • Making modifications to classrooms or transportation arrangements to ensure the safety of everyone in the District
  • Supporting professional development for our teachers to navigate and excel at remote or distance learning if that is needed again in the coming year
  • Purchasing a virtual program to take the place of the traditional Link Crew curriculum at LAHS. Adapting to the current situation, this program would continue the success of the Link Crew program to best serve this incoming 9th grade class, especially since they did not have preview days.  Additionally, with all of the uncertainty that awaits us all, this program could offer continuity and consistency if the district is not operating on a standard schedule.
  • Other needs as determined by the District, including to ensure that music, art and physical education remain an integrated part of the school day

Gifts of any size are greatly appreciated! Together, we are united in our actions to keep our children safe, healthy and happy!

Please direct questions to Ann Glock, Executive Director at annglock@greendragonfoundation.org or (570) 522-8433. Thank you in advance!

Sincerely,

Lisa Perrone, Lisa Tranquillo, Kimberley Drexler and Jen Shabahang

July 1 marks new beginnings... The Green Dragon Foundation begins its new year and the Lewisburg Area School District has a new leader.  We'd like to welcome Dr. Jennifer Polinchock as the new LASD Superintendent!

Dr. Polinchock recognizes the importance of community support. When asked why support of the "Lifting Up Lewisburg" campaign is so important, she responded, "One of the bedrocks of our community is our schools. We want to ensure that our students and staff are healthy and safe as we return to school. Your support in this campaign is much more than helping the school district meet the educational and safety needs of the students. It is showing our community's investment in the future- our children."
