We're Almost There!

We are so close to our fundraising goal! Keep those Boosterthon pledges coming in so your PTO can purchase items for both campuses.

Remember, you can help support Lake Carolina by logging your student's pledges onto www.funrun.com, plus you can watch the character videos online too. We need your help to reach our goal this year!
