Honor recent District retirees with a gift to support our schools
The La Crosse Public Education Foundation (LPEF) is pleased to join with the School District of La Crosse in saluting retiring teachers and other staff members. See a detailed list below.
With support from our Salute to Educators Sponsor Fowler & Hammer, LPEF again helped to underwrite the cost of the District Retirement Dinner May 9, 2018, and also partnered with the La Crosse Tribune to publicly recognize retiring employees in a full-page ad published May 13.
Former students, colleagues and friends looking for a way to honor and recognize these people for their dedicated service to education may want to consider a gift to LPEF. We’ve created a special recognition program to encourage these types of lasting gifts.
- For each gift of $35 or more, we’ll provide the retiring staff member with a complimentary ticket (limit 4) to our Grants Award Luncheon set for Jan. 21, 2019.
- The retiree honored with the greatest number of gifts (by June 30, 2018) will be recognized at the Grants Award Luncheon – and a classroom or staff development grant will be awarded in his/her name.
For information and form to submit your gift, download our special flyer.
