Submitted by the Alliance for Excellence in Lake Bluff
The Alliance for Excellence is celebrating 25 years as the Lake Bluff Schools’ educational foundation. For a quarter of a century, the Alliance has strongly supported our teachers in their pursuit of excellence in teaching and learning. We have done this through the funding of innovative technologies, programs, and materials that enrich curriculum and inspire the joy of learning.
Through the generous donations of our parents and greater community, we support teachers’ initiatives across all grade levels and across all educational disciplines. We hope that the creative sparks generated through enthusiastic teaching and energetic learning will carry all of our children along their incredible journeys. We are grateful to live in a place that values education so highly, and one in which a K-8 foundation can thrive.
Some of the Alliance’s most recent grants have included:
- Orff Musical Instruments
- Digital SLR Video Cameras
- The Aaron Reynolds Author Visit
- Vernier Probeware, a measurement tool for Middle School Science
- Poster Designer and Printer
- Lake County Cares “Read with Me!”
- Blueprints for the Outdoor Classroom
- GenMove Physical Education Program
- Ukuleles for 6th grade music
To mark this occasion, the Alliance is hosting a reception on Wednesday, October 29th at 7:00 p.m. in the Lake Bluff Elementary School Library at 350 West Washington Street. At the celebration we will recognize former board members, show examples of past grants, and hear about the history of Alliance for Excellence with our very special guest, Dr. Edward Noyes, who was the Superintendent of District 65 when the Alliance was created.
To continue our steadfast support of teachers, the Alliance is launching our fall fundraising campaign with a mailing in early November. But don’t wait! To donate now and support the outstanding teachers and staff in District 65, please visit our website: www.lb65alliance.org. All donations to the Alliance are tax deductible and qualify for corporate matching donations.
The Alliance looks forward to many more years of fulfilling our mission to support excellence in education for District 65!
