The LIFT Fund is being established to both honor and celebrate Lucinda’s commitment to life-long learning by strengthening the school’s professional development opportunities for faculty and staff. The LIFT Fund will foster new collaborations and initiatives, encouraging teams including mixed-grade-level or cross-department colleagues to study aspects of school life that will positively impact students’ experience and/or the health of the MCDS community. It is a fitting symbol of Lucinda’s extraordinary legacy.
