WHO WE ARE
The Foundation for Lovejoy Schools (FLS) is a non-profit organization organized specifically to support the Lovejoy Independent School District (LISD). The directors of the board are dedicated to “champion” LISD by volunteering time, giving financially, and encouraging the community to support the LISD for the benefit of all students. We believe we are demonstrating to our children what the graduate profile, “working for justice in the community”, really means. We expect that through the support of our community, our children will excel in their education, be successful in their occupations, and be powerful contributors to the world in which they live.
To support our mission, the Foundation has two fundraisers each year – the Annual Appeal and the Denim & Diamonds Gala and Auction. In addition, the Foundation is supported by LISD teachers and staff through payroll deductions. At the end of each school year, we calculate the dollar amount for grants to the district. Grants are awarded through the Invest In Excellence process for the following school year. We also financially support all of our teacher’s professional development through Learning at Lovejoy.
