Help us Make Safety Upgrades to Our Building

Leaves of Learning, Inc.

Thank you to our families who already make monthly recurring donations to Leaves. We appreciate your continued support!

Dear Families, Teachers, and Staff, 

Our students are our single most important priority, and we take ensuring their safety seriously. Over the past few years we have created and implemented plans with the advice and input of national experts as well as our local Chief of Police, Officer Dave Battin. Over the summer we created an updated list of the next upgrades needed to ensure the safety of our building.
Here are the major safety upgrades that we have made or will be making soon:

Upgrading our outdated security cameras, adding additional outside security cameras

Purchasing dedicated security monitors

Upgrading the systems that connect the cameras and monitors

Installing several panic buttons that connect directly with the Deer Park Police

Replacing glass panels in the front door and classroom doors with plexiglass

Implementing an emergency messaging system which allows 2-way communication between groups using a dedicated number that does not rely on wifi

Adding room numbers to classroom windows and interior classroom doors and labeling exterior doors 

These security upgrades will require a substantial cash investment of close to $110,000. We are reaching out to our community to ask for help making these important upgrades as these costs are beyond our anticipated safety budget.

We are hoping that families who are able, will commit to a substantial donation. We also know that some families are only able to contribute a smaller amount, or not at all, or perhaps a recurring monthly payment to spread the donation over the school year

Whatever your contribution, it is very much needed and appreciated!


Please consider asking grandparents, aunts, uncles, godparents, other family members, and friends to join this important fundraising drive. 

Forward them this the link, which enables them to donate via PayPal or credit/debit card. Checks are welcome too. As we are a 501(C), donations may be tax deductible. Please know that we are dedicated to your children and committed to maintaining an environment where they can thrive. As always, we welcome your questions and feedback.
