LVHS Makerspace Fundraiser

We need your help!

Imagine a classroom where students have the freedom to design their own learning projects from start to finish.

As a STEM school, LVHS arms our students with key skills for the future – critical thinking, collaboration, communication and creativity. The LVHS Makerspace will be a DIY workshop where students gather to create, invent, learn and make their imaginations come to life!

Help us make this space real – there are three ways to make a tax deductible donation today!
