L.E.A.F. Helps New Teachers with Classroom Setup.
Lamar Educational Awards Foundation (L.E.A.F.) was at Bowie Elementary awarding $100 to two “zero” hour teachers. Justin Davidson and Ashley Ruehman. The gift from L.E.A.F. is to help with classroom startup cost. For the 2018 school year, L.E.A.F. has awarded $8,800 and Lamar CISD is still hiring! Money to fund this program comes from our employee giving program.
