The Lynchburg City Schools Education Foundation hosted our 17th Annual Breakfast with the Superintendent on Thursday, March 16, 2023 from 7:30-9:00 a.m. at the University of Lynchburg, Burton Dining Hall.

Attendees joined the Lynchburg City Schools Education Foundation for our premier event as Dr. Crystal M. Edwards, Superintendent of Lynchburg City Schools, shared Celebrating Parents as Partners.

At Lynchburg City Schools, parent and caregiver involvement is critical to the success of our students. Whether it’s volunteering in the classroom, taking part in PTO activities, providing feedback to the division, or encouraging their students, parents play a crucial role in assisting their child’s learning. LCS recognizes that parents are full partners in their child’s education and encourages parents to be actively involved in their child’s school. Join us as we celebrate the ways parents and caregivers support the LCS mission of reaching every child, by name and by need, to graduation and beyond!

The Lynchburg City Schools Education Foundation, Inc. sponsors programs and activities designed to provide additional resources for teachers, recognize student accomplishments, and strengthen our schools. Proceeds from the Breakfast are used by the Foundation to fund ongoing programs and projects such as Classroom Innovation Grants, the Tools4Schools Warehouse, an annual Senior Honors Reception, and student scholarships.
