We are grateful!
Our Annual Fund 8 runs through June 30th. We have received generous donations from 19 families, 2 businesses, the board, and a long-time friend of the school – a heartfelt “Thank you” goes out to all of them, and to donors yet to be.
We received a generous grant from the Giles W. and Elise G. Mead Foundation of Tacoma, WA. It will strengthen all our programs, particularly Chinese and computer programming, with salary support and funds for new laptops and audio equipment.
The Confucius Institute donated magnificent Chinese costumes and decorations as well as many books.
Past LCA student Louis Pate donated a plethora of toys and learning kits.
We run well and keep tuition moderate because of the many volunteer services provided by our LCA parents, grandparents, students, teachers, board members, and friends of the school.
We’re revising our donor acknowledgment webpage. See the first results, for the current year, here.
We ran in the mode of distance education from mid-March onward. Our tech-savvy teachers deployed 8 technologies, our students and our LCA parents stepped up. Students even had scheduled times on Wednesdays to come in, no more than 3 at a time, to take tests, pick up or drop off assignments, exchange books, or get science or art supplies.
Here are some studious faces on Zoom:

I just want to say that you and your staff have done a wonderful job with the remote learning. There have been plenty of activities to keep them engaged and Emily has enjoyed all her zoom meetings. – Bridget Mitchell
I hope I’ve said this before, but, thank you, and all the teachers for everything you do for our children. You’ve always done a lot, but now more than ever, you and your peers have stepped up beyond all reasonable expectations to provide for our kids and we’re forever thankful for that. – Doug Petranoff
Thanks for a great school year, the upheaval notwithstanding! – Audrey Ezeh
It’s good to know how hard it is to teach young children and keep them focused. Teachers are doing amazing work at school! – Yumiko Isoyama
We are so grateful for all that you do and the wonderful education you provide for our children- Carolyn Bowman
