LEEF Awards ‘20-’21 Grants

LMHS instructors, Matt Bunton and Steve Alberson put together a project for the AP Environmental Science class and the 6th grade students to be completed in the spring of 2021.  The sum of $800 was awarded to purchase apple trees to establish an apple orchard on the school grounds, enhancing the school’s other urban agriculture projects (vegetable gardens, maple syrup, hydroponic lettuce and bee hives.)  Principal Greg Posewitz was awarded $1,500 for KAMI, a leading digital classroom app built to transform existing documents into an interactive learning experience which would be available for use by all LMHS students.

LEEF is currently raising funds with its annual “Giving Tuesday & Alumni Challenge” campaign.  Money contributed to LEEF between Nov. 30th and December 4th will be matched thanks to the generosity of area businesses (Rands Trucking and Erik A. Ostenso, O.D.) and several anonymous donors.  Gifts up to $5,000 will be quadrupled.  For further information see the LEEF portion of the district website Click Here  Donations may be made online or sent to LEEF, 1700 Edgewood Avenue East, Ladysmith, WI 54848.  Please help us grow!
