Leyden Pride Pavers for sale

Leyden announces the inaugural sale of Leyden Pride Pavers to commemorate the new concession stand at the stadium. This is a great opportunity to pay a tribute to teachers, coaches, teams, families and students, celebrate a milestone such as graduation, or memorialize a loved one. As Leyden approaches its 100 anniversary in 2024, the Leyden Pride Pavers are a great way for our school community to be a part of the tradition!

Pavers feature up to three lines of text, 13 characters each including spaces. In this initial offering, pavers will be discounted to a cost of $75 each, for all orders placed prior to August 1. After that, the standard paver cost will remain at $100 each.

Funds raised through the purchase of pavers will benefit the Leyden Foundation, which exists to support student needs that reach beyond the capacity of the school district.

To order a paver, please visit www.leyden212.org/pavers and fill out the purchase form.
