There are many ways to get involved at Loyola Village.
The Loyola Village Booster Club is the fundraising arm for Loyola Village Elementary School. It is a tax-exempt, charitable organization formed to enhance the educational and fine & performing arts opportunities that are not otherwise provided for in the school budget and to sponsor projects and events for the benefit of our students.
As many of you may already know, the Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD) has been faced with massive budget cuts. These budget cuts have had, and continue to have, a significant negative impact on our school. As a result, Booster Club currently provides support for the following positions and items: our school-wide arts instructor, music instructor, guitar instructor, teachers' aides, our one and only copy machine and field trips for all classrooms.
Your support is deeply valued - whether you can donate one of your time, buy or sell fundraising items, give a direct donation, notify us of matching grant programs, write grants and even introduce new fundraisers - it takes a Village and we would love your support. Be the change YOU want to see.
If you are able, please make a direct donation of money to the Booster Club. One hundred percent of every dollar you give will go to the school and is tax deductible. We accept cash, checks and credit card payments – and you can set up monthly installments by clicking the PayPal Donate link below. Please also check to see if your employer offers a Donation Matching Program, which will double your donation. We will, of course, be conducting fundraisers throughout the year to help meet our financial goals, but fundraisers will not be enough. We need you. Please click the Donate button below and make your donation today!
Volunteering & Fundraising Opportunities
Volunteering is the backbone of Booster Club’s fundraising efforts. And, as noted above, with the budget cuts, we need your help more than ever. From our Annual Arts Alive Festival, Gift Wrap, Cookie Dough and the Literacy Extravaganza Event to Dining Out and our Annual Hawaiin Opportunity Drawing, Booster Club volunteers organize various fundraising events and programs throughout the year. Learn more about how you can get involved in volunteering and fundraising opportunities.
PTA is the nation’s oldest, largest and highest profile volunteer organization working on behalf of public schools, children and families. Loyola Village PTA volunteers work to improve the education, health and welfare of all children at our school. PTA sponsors the following programs: Reflections arts recognition and achievement program, Yearbook, Book Fair and much more.
For less than the price of a movie ticket (the entire cost of membership), you get PTA representation and advocacy on a national level, and your children and ALL children have a better chance to be the award winners in their education, health and well being. Please join the Loyola Village PTA. Annual membership dues are only $10.
School Site Council
The governing body at Loyola Village School is the School Site Council (SSC). SSC develops and approves the Single Plan for Student Achievement, including school improvement programs and school budgets. Our council is comprised of the principal, faculty, school personnel such as administrative staff, parents of students attending the school or other community members selected by such parents. SSC representatives and officers are elected at the beginning of each school year, and all eligible parties are encouraged to participate. Download LAUSD’s Policy Bulletin to learn more about SSC.
