The Lakeland Education Foundation (LEF) has extended the deadline for their brick campaign and added a second fundraiser for Lakeland schools.
Tanya Wallace, chairman of LEF, said the organization has tentatively extended the bricks deadline to Dec. 31.
The bricks will be placed on a pathway by the flagpole at Lakeland Middle Preparatory School. Cost is $100 to $ 215 depending on the size of the brick and message. They can be used to recognize children, family, teachers or memorialize a loved one.
Ms. Wallace said the LEF is a 501(c) (3) non-profit educational organization that raises funds for public schools and teachers in the community. The funds are used to enrich the quality of the education for all students. To date, funds raised have been used for technology, such as Chromebooks and E-writers, novel sets for entire grades, a greenhouse, weather station and interactive math and reading supplements that improve comprehension.
