Message From Our President
Dear Leigh Families,
Welcome to the 2022-23 school year! Our Home & School Club supports all of our students at Leigh. We do this primarily through funding academic and mental health & wellness programs for all of our students. We also provide a bridge between home and school to enable all of us to be more engaged so that we can support all of the students and staff at Leigh.
I invite you to connect with the Home & School Club and be a part of this wonderful community. Read our monthly newsletters and stay up to date with Home & School Club happenings, attend our monthly meetings (both in person and on Zoom), follow us on Facebook, and come back and visit this website regularly.
We voted in our 2022-23 Board at our last HSC meeting in May. I am very grateful to serve alongside such a dedicated and enthusiastic team and I thank each of them for being so generous with their time and talents. Each Board and Committee Chair oversees a team of volunteers. Thank you to ALL of the parents on these teams – your support is very much appreciated.
We welcome additional volunteers and invite you to join our team. Sign up to volunteer now! All skills and interests are needed. We typically have a variety of projects such as community building, financial management, communications, fundraising, project planning, gardening, writing, technology support, volunteer coordination, College & Career Center support, etc. We also need parents for annual projects such as the Stampede 5K Run/Walk on May 20th, 2023, and Senior Grad Night in June 2023. Learn more about our volunteer opportunities here.
Please also consider making a donation to our Home & School Club. Our Annual Giving is our biggest fundraiser of the year and we appreciate any donation you can make. The money raised pays for so many important programs including: classroom resources and materials, technology, and our ongoing campus beautification program. Learn more about where we have spent our money in past years.
Many local companies offer matching donations to school organizations. Please avail of this corporate matching program if possible so that you can double or triple your donation to Leigh Home and School Club. Check to see if your employer offers corporate matching and will match your donation.
Thank you for making a difference at Leigh!
Please reach out to me at any time if you need anything or have any questions. The Home & School Club will help directly if we can, or help you figure out who best to connect with. Contact me any time at [email protected]
