Loma Portal Foundation

The Loma Portal Foundation wants your input!  Do you have ideas for how to improve our campus, thoughts on how to provide improved learning environments?  We want to hear from you!  The Foundation would like to identify improvement projects that fit within our financial capacity.  A few examples of suggested projects include: shade structures for the playground, risers to be used for Spring Music Festival and better seating options in assemblies, swings for the upper playground, etc.

Please keep in mind that because this is a "brainstorming" process, we cannot not always be certain of the viability of each project.  Any supporting details you can provide with your suggestions (estimated cost, timeframe to implement etc) is greatly appreciated.  Please submit your ideas to the Foundation by January 15th, 2018 by emailing lomaportal.school@gmail.com using the subject "Campus Improvement Project".  Suggested projects will be discussed at the Foundation meeting in February.  Please attend to share your thoughts!
