At LCS there are many ways to stay in touch, be a part of our family and support our school! There are several exciting community building events throughout the year as well as opportunities to donate your time and talents to our school. These events are designed to foster fellowship and philanthropy between the larger LCS community and our deserving students in order to maintain the LCS standards of academic excellence today and in the future.
Here are some of the many ways you can get involved:
Treasures of the Heart Auction
Each March, our school holds our annual “Treasures of the Heart” Auction. Our upcoming Auction on March 23, 2017 marks our fourteenth Auction! This is an elegant evening out featuring both a live & silent auction and student testimony. Monies raised from the event go towards the School’s Annual Fund and a yearly Compelling Need, addressing a specific need/project in the school seeking financial support.
The event is held at The Century House in Latham, drawing over 250 guests, a mixture of Capital District business professionals, LCS families and alumni and new families who are invited to join our existing families to learn more about what LCS is all about.
This event would not be a success without the over 350 business donors and table sponsors who give to the event. If you would like to help by donating a product or service to the event, or sponsor a table, please contact Amy Thiel at firstname.lastname@example.org or 434-6051.

Annual Golf Tournament Benefitting the Mike Davis Memorial Fund for Tuition Assistance
Join us for a great day of golf and help support the Mike Davis Memorial Fund for Tuition Assistance. Mike Davis was a parent of one of our Alumni, and a very dear friend to many of us at Loudonville Christian School. The fund provides assistance to parents whose desire is for their children to receive an education committed to high scholastic standards and an evangelical view of God and the world, but who are facing difficult economic times. Numerous families and their children have benefited greatly from this special event.
Donors have the opportunity to partner with the school through a variety of sponsorship levels. Click here for information about the Golf Tournament and a list of last year’s generous donors. For additional information about sponsoring the event or to partner with us, please contact Amy Thiel at email@example.com or 434-6051.
Each year in early June our school participates in a school-wide day of service. The Serve-A-Thon, a one-day community service fundraiser, is an extension of the ministry days we participate in throughout the year.
- Allows our students to put their faith into action! We want to be doers of the Word and not just hearers; serving others, not just ourselves.
- Seeks to meet needs in our community, involving the entire school, PreK-12, in service projects that will have a tangible outcome all over the Capital District.
- Is a chance for our students to actively participate in fundraising for our school. Rather than sell something or be involved in a physical challenge, like a Jog-A-Thon, we will be serving, ministering, and becoming an active part of our community.
Parent-Teacher Fellowship (PTF)
The Parent-Teacher Fellowship at LCS is an active ministry that seeks to provide cooperation and communication between the parents and teachers. PTF dues help to fund events that honor and assist both the students and teachers. The PTF ministry activities include service, fellowship, teaching, and prayer support. The faculty and the administration are very appreciative of the support provided by the PTF. Projects undertaken by the PTF are typically, beyond what can be done through the school’s budget and benefit the entire school. For more information please contact Tim Calkins, Principal, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Our Welcome Desk provides a friendly face to all who enter our school! These friendly faces are dedicated volunteers (parents, grandparents & friends) who sign up for 2-hour shifts per week. If you are interested in helping out with this important ministry please contact Samantha Keathley at email@example.com or 434-6051.
Safety & Security Team
LCS has established a School Safety and Security Team “To safeguard the students, faculty, staff and visitors of Loudonville Christian School while embracing our core values of integrity, alertness and goodwill. Psalm 56:11.” If you are retired, have prior law enforcement, military or security experience and wish to be considered for an appointment to this new ministry, please contact Eduardo Nieves via email at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information and/or to obtain an application.
Colonie Center School Bucks
Our school participates in the Colonie Center School Bucks program. For every $1 spent at Colonie Center, LCS will receive 1 school buck. Receipts can be turned into Guest Services or the School Office within 60 days of purchase. Any store or service (USPS, movie tickets, birthday parties, etc.) are eligible. Our school also participates in concerts at Colonie Center, Barnes & Noble Book Fair, Coats for Kids and many more programs, earning additional school bucks for our school.
Last year our school earned 2nd place, and the $4,000 prize money allowed us to makeover our Kindergarten room! Money from the Colonie Center School Bucks program also goes towards the Arts & Music program at LCS.
Box Tops for Education
Since our school began our Box Tops program, we have raised over $10,000 for our school! These monies have helped to support our Physical Education and Arts program at school, as well as many other Departments.
Box Tops are collected all year long and contests among the grades are often held throughout the year. Box Tops can be dropped off in the Main Office, labeled with the grade they are supporting.
