Dear La Paz Parents,
On behalf of the La Paz STPO Board, we did not want to let this Thanksgiving Season pass without sending you a big ‘THANK YOU’ for all your support this 1st Quarter.
We are so grateful for the countless volunteer hours given by so many of you, supporting the various La Paz events, as well as your generous financial donations to our Annual fundraiser. Thank you!
The results of the Annual Fundraiser are in:
- The event was extremely well-organized
- We had a record number of participants overall and a definite increase in 8th grade student participation
- The students who participated enjoyed the rewards, activities and the variety
- We even netted several thousand more than we did with Zombie Madness, last year
- Through your generous support we exceeded our fundraising goal of $20,000 and raised $46,266.00 for La Paz Intermediate! Muchas Gracias!
As a result, the STPO will be able to fund 85 NEW Chromebooks for La Paz. This is an important accomplishment because it ensures that the 1:1 Chromebook to Student ratio of up-to-date, working technology is maintained for 7th & 8th graders, THIS YEAR and the foreseeable future.
Additionally, we are able to make a huge contribution to the NEW Electronic Marquis Fund as well as support the many STPO 2017-2018 Sponsored Programs that benefit our students. Merci Beaucoup!
Our mission for this school year is not totally complete. There are more upcoming ways to get involved and be part of your student’s La Paz experience.
