LPIE in the Sky: Spotlight on LPIE Art Instructors

The Public Art Committee of Lafayette is pleased to present LPIE in the Sky: Spotlight on LPIE Art Instructors, a first-ever exhibition featuring the work of five Lafayette Partners in Education (LPIE) artist-instructors: Susan Fuller, Valyrie Gillum, Tim Hancock, Kristen Jensen-Horne, and Lisa Larsen. This exhibit seeks to honor the contributions of these artists to the cultural enrichment of the community. Lafayette is fortunate to have these talented artists and passionate educators inspiring its students. The exhibit is on now through September 30, and the opening reception is scheduled for September 23, from 6:00-7pm, at the Library’s Art Gallery. Check it out!

With gratitude,

The Power of LPIE at Acalanes – Donate Today!

LPIE has committed $4.5 million directly to our students and their schools this academic year, with nearly $1 Million of that number to Acalanes alone. Consider what your donation funds for your child each and every day at Acalanes: 16 class sections; iPads and Chromebooks for the 1:1 device program; science, engineering, math and robotics; world languages; the expanded Writing Tutor Program; Wellness Counselors for the new Wellness Center and much, much more. You can find a full listing of what we fund here.

We can’t reach our fundraising goals without your help. Though we ask $1,000 per child, some families donate less, some donate more. Our hope is that ALL families participate in some way, and we value ALL donations.

Make a single payment, 10 monthly payments, or make a pledge. Click here to donate.

With gratitude,
