A Note from our PTSA
The 2022-23 school year is almost over and PTSA is asking all families to show our appreciation one more time to finish out this year.
We are collecting donations to purchase gift cards for all teachers, staff, & administration.
Please use this member hub link to donate any amount you would like.
We will be taking donations all this week until June 4.
Thank you for your amazing support all year long.

LSA Student Spotlight
Congratulations, Des Gates!
- Des is one of 23 national Flagship Scholarship recipients, and the competition was fierce as applicants are undergraduate, graduate, and doctoral students.
- The Flagship Scholarship is awarded for academic commitment, community engagement and impact, financial need, and demonstrated potential for leadership in LGBTQ+ communities.
- Des is in good company, as his cohort of Flagship Scholars attend Yale, Stanford, Berkeley, Columbia, UCLA, NYU, and Northwestern University.
- The scholarship provides four years of financial support, mentorship, and leadership training.
- Des will also be a delegate to the Point Foundation’s leadership retreat in Los Angeles this July.
- Organizations that fund the Point Foundation scholarships include: The Walt Disney Company, Amazon, MacKenzie Scott, Dolce & Gabbana, FedEx, NBC Universal, Toyota, Wells Fargo, and more.
- To see Des and the official list of Flagship Scholars for 2023-24, click here. And here is the link to Des' page (with a mention of LSA which might be helpful PR for the school and recruiting efforts).
