"Ambition has one heel nailed in well, though she stretch her fingers to touch the heavens. " -Lao Tzu
This school year has been an ambitious one for all of us here at Impact on Education. We have accomplished much this school year, but spring is when we really count on our community to help us blossom. Our hallmark events are undergoing ambitious metamorphoses to improve the overall experience that you encounter at the events. Read on to learn more about our exciting venue changes!
Contributions from you have helped sustain our programs that the Boulder Valley School District (BVSD) has come to rely on more than ever. With possible increased public education funding reductions, we are tasked with raising more funds to support our most important assets: BVSD students and teachers.

Roses are Red, Letters were Read...
Inspiring stories of love were shared by many Lafayette, Louisville, and Superior elementary school students at an inaugural benefit event held the evening of February 11, 2012 at the Louisville Center of the Arts. Proceeds from the evening went to Impact on Education.
Many thanks to Assorted Goods & Candy, a locally owned old fashion candy store, and Sassafras Photography for teaming up to host the writing contest and event.
The purpose of this event was to recognize and support the talented children throughout our community and to remind us that love surrounds us all.
