Lovett Rocks with Gratitude

Lovett Rocks

We are excited to kick off our Lovett Rocks with Gratitude Campaign for the 2020-2021 school year. This is our annual fundraiser to help supplement the school's annual budget and provide additional resources to our teachers and school.  The funds raised will be used to help make virtual learning more effective, support efforts to make face-to-face learning safer, and enhance our campus with various capital improvements.  No gift is too small and we hope to have 100% family participation.
