He was a lion of a man in all that he brought to LHWHS.

UPCOMING EVENTS & INFO
Faculty Grant Program -
Say Thank you to LHWHS Faculty


Our teachers strive to enhance the delivery of curriculum in innovative ways. Ideas and opportunities may arise for curricular programs now available due to the new facilities.  The impact of such ideas should not be missed. To be immediately responsive, the LHWHSPA developed the Faculty Grant Program, which addresses faculty and staff requests throughout the year and supports your children today.
 
We understand the importance of investing your money where you can see its impact.  By investing in the Faculty Grant Program, your gift, of any amount, will be utilized for programs in the classroom and beyond.  As a Parent Association, our goal is to help teachers quickly put their ideas into action so your child experiences the potential to benefit, while still enrolled.
 
How you can help:
By Mail: Make your check out to LHWHSPA - memo line: Faculty Grant Program.  Please provide your contact information and child's name(s)/grade, and mail to 1201 South Warson Road, St Louis, MO 63124
 
Online: Make a donation from our Parent Association website: www.laduehighpa.com/payments.  It’s simple, allows space for a comment, and can be completed 24/7.
 
The LHWHSPA is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization so your donation is tax-deductible and available for corporate matching.  The LHWHSPA follows a strict audit and bank statement review protocol, so that you may be confident that your donations are used for their intended purpose. 
 
We truly appreciate your support.
 
Sincerely,
 
Your 2018 - 2019 Ladue High Parent Association Executive Committee
