2024 Wellness Initiative – FLOURISH FAMILIES!

As a foundation we have raised and donated over $150,000 dollars in 2019-2023 for BUSD. Raising awareness and funds has yielded many tangible resources for wellness to BUSD! We are launching 2024 – by sponsoring a hands-on wellness workshop, for the entire family–Flourishing Families! The initial target group for this is families with elementary age children.

Flourishing Families have FUN: Cultivating Character, Health & Connectedness!

This interactive workshop is fun & informative for the whole family. This pilot course will begin January 17, 2024. The 6 sessions bring to light the power of our values & habits to shape our families. For most families, values and habits are sub-conscious realities that don’t get much of our attention, thus FLOURISHING FAMILIES creates a fun, interactive way for families to choose which values and habits will serve them best on their path to flourishing. This 6-session course is free to LV/SD families, but class size is limited, so there is a registration form that must be filled out – Sign up Below.

We can guarantee you won’t leave empty handed, and when you show-up early for our on-Time drawing you can win a $50.00 gift-prize each week. Each class runs 6:00 – 7:30 pm on the following Wednesday nights. Jan 17 & 31*, Feb 7 & 21*, March 6 & 13* The first class will be hosted at Grace Miller, the Second class at LaVerne Heights* – and the location will alternate each session. Sign up now to ensure you are in this first opportunity!

The workshop will provide age appropriate interaction, instruction and motivation, with take home opportunities and a parent focused virtual private-group engagement in-between each workshop. What are you waiting for?


In 2019 we began a renewed mission, focusing our efforts to ensure the continued success of our students. To fulfill this mission, we adopted Student Wellness as our core platform. Student Wellness encompasses supporting district programs that will ensure students’ physical, social and emotional health as they navigate their school years. We believe a cultural & community driven shift is essential around the concepts of wellness to best support our local families. Much of this shift has already taken place via the BUSD district, thus we work closely with the principals, counselors and teachers to understand what is happening on campus and what is needed to serve our students well.

The LVSD Educational Foundation has raised over $ 150,000.00 to give back to our schools: Celebrating Wellness between 2020 – 2023. Mediation Gardens, Wellness Centers, Quiet Corners and many other initiatives have been funded from our efforts. We have also provided various opportunities for the staff and students to experience:

Meditation/Learn how to meditate. It’s as easy as 1,2,3!
Sound Mind Tuning/A tune up for life!


Bonita 5K Challenge is an event we started to not only promote wellness but a great way for the La Verne San Dimas Educational Foundation to be involved with our communities. We created four unique 5K routes that encompassed all 13 of the Bonita Unified School District sites.
