Scholarship Information


LES PTO Annual Scholarships-2020 

The Larkspur Elementary School Parent Teacher Organization is very proud to offer three $1,000.00 college scholarships. Two of these scholarships are in honor and memory of two very special young people who passed away in 2006. Stuart Mazanec and Liz Yost, both graduates of LES and long time residents of the Larkspur community died in 2006, way too early in their lives. These scholarships were created to allow LES PTO to give back to our students, while remembering these two young people, whose families still remain active members of our community.
The third scholarship is in honor of all LES volunteers past, present and future! This scholarship was created to recognize the many volunteers who have dedicated their time and talents to the students and teachers of LES. We want to help a Larkspur graduate who has also dedicated their time to volunteerism continue their higher education.
