Innovation in the Classroom

The impact of LEF contributions on Lexington’s students is broad, transformative, and enduring. Our children benefit from richer learning experiences and best practices targeted to their diverse needs and strengths, and to their teachers’ own excitement about learning. Future students reap the benefits of today’s grants, as teachers share their new learning and practices with fellow educators at LPS’ Lexington Learns Together, professional development days, and in their Professional Learning Communities within and across subjects, grades and schools.

Student Perspective

"Thank you for funding this day [project adventure] where I learned about working with my community while having fun. I learned that there are people I can trust to help me. I also learned that not everything will work out, but you just have to move on like when we ran out of materials for the 'beast.' I had a great day." ~Clarke Student

Parent Perspective

"At a recent LEF event where faculty described their grant results, I took note that LEF board members were engaging and the teachers and administrators were enthusiastic. I felt that the money I invest in LEF is going to good use. All this enrichment and advancement would not be possible without LEF grants that encourage our school teachers to try something new. LEF is the incubator for innovative education ideas in Lexington Public Schools." ~ Yvonne L.
