"Buy a Bus" update: almost at $40,000!

The video at the top of this page shows you how Landon Bears use our activity buses, but it took a few takes to share their experiences. Enjoy these outtakes from some Grade 3 Bears! 



Thank you to the 44 donors who in just one-and-a-half weeks have helped us raise almost $40,000 toward our goal of $100,000 to buy and maintain a new activity bus for our boys!

'Buy a Bus' Campaign Starts Strong

Landon's "Buy a Bus!" campaign is off to a strong start: In less than one week, we have received more than $30,000 in donations toward our goal of $100,000 to buy and maintain a new activity bus to meet the growing needs of the experiential learning, arts and athletics programs that are so important to our boys' Landon experience.


Thank you to everyone who has contributed so far, and an especially big thank you to the Samit and Desai families for their generosity. The Samits, classes of 2017 and 2020, have donated $25,000 toward our goal, and the Desais have offered to match donations from the Class of 2018 up to $5,000 over the course of the campaign.


Thank you for your continued support of our school and our boys.


Go Bears!
