HELP US BEAT OUR SOAR-A-THON GOAL!
This is our last week for SOAR-a-thon and we are so proud of our students and families for stepping up to the challenge! We raised over $20,000 in week one--more than 80% of our goal! With a few more donations we'll beat our school-wide goal and students will get to SLIME Principal Walker and Assistant Principal Lombardo.
Ask your child how they SOARED last week and share your child's accomplishments with family and friends along with a link to your child's personalized fundraising page to help us get over the finish line! If you don't see your child's fundraising link below, log in or create an account.
We'll also need parent volunteers to help make the October 29 fun run FUN so sign-up today!
GHE PTA is proud to sponsor the school's first annual S-P-E-L-L-I-N-G B-E-E! It's a great opportunity for our Falcon's to demonstrate their spelling skills in the tradition of robust academic competition.
Students in first through fifth grade will participate in classroom spelling bees. Third grade classroom winners will participate in a grade-wide bee and our fourth and fifth grade classroom winners will participate in a school-wide bee.
The bees will happen in December with registration the first week of November. Keep an eye out for details on how to sign-up in Ms. Walker's Friday communications!
GHE PTA sponsor High House Pediatric Dentistry (HHPD) is hosting a Trunk or Treat Halloween Bash along with a No-Carve Pumpkin Contest. Local businesses are submitting pumpkins and Green Hope Elementary and Davis Drive Elementary students get to vote for the winner! These pumpkins are amazing!
The school with the most students voting will earn a cash donation from High House Pediatric Dentistry! And the more votes, the higher the donation, up to $1,000.
Kids can vote at HHPD from 10/21 - 10/30 during their normal business hours (Mon-Thurs: 8:30am to 5:00pm). Children can also wait and vote during the Trunk or Treat Halloween Bash on October 30 from 10AM - 1PM at 1705 High House Road. Stop by in costumes for fun activities, candy and giveaways.

School districts throughout the state and nation are experiencing significant staffing shortages, including here in Wake County. We have all heard about the need for bus drivers, but the cafeterias in our schools are seriously understaffed right now as well. GHE needs help every day of the week for shifts between 11AM and 1PM. Tasks may include replenishing products on serving line, cleaning tables and removing trash. Please sign up for a shift if you are able. Note: The Google Form currently shows shifts from 10AM to 2PM, please only sign up for the 11AM-12PM and 12-1PM slots.
