BENEFITING: THE LEARNING COMMUNITY CHARTER SCHOOL INC
Genuine Purpose: Every donation will go towards the many expenses of running a 5-sport athletics program! Uniforms, buses, concessions, referees, equipment...you name it!
Reasoning: Our Athletics' program has no monetary budget allotted through our charter school, thus all expenses are solely paid for through the teams' fundraising efforts and the generous donations of community members who believe in our mission.
About Us: Learning Community Charter School is home to 585 amazing students, who are from a variety of minority groups, with some 39 languages being spoken, with at least 35% of our students coming from economically disadvantaged backgrounds.! LCCS' Athletics provide competitive, safe and fun opportunities for our scholar-athletes to participate and excel in the sport or athletic club of their choice! We currently have 87 scholar-athletes actively participating and competing in the LCCS' Athletic Department; girls and boys ranging from 5th-8th grade! Athletics at Learning Community Charter School got its' recent start during the 2011-2012 school year. The dream of adding a competitive sports program became a reality when a couple of dedicated LCCS staffers and parents came together to form the Jaguars Boys' Basketball Team. Our reality has grown and progressed since then as LCCS now has the following athletics and clubs to offer its' student population: Boys' Basketball Team, Girls' Basketball Team, Co-Ed Dance Team, Co-Ed Soccer Team, Co-Ed Volleyball Team, Co-Ed Running Club and intramurals that occur throughout the year. With your generous donation(s), we can continue expanding our LCCS athletic dreams into even bigger realities! Go Jaguars!
