SOAR-a-thon is our annual fundraiser that promotes growth, inclusivity and community. Over two weeks each fall, students work with their classrooms to complete challenges in 4 areas—STEM, Outreach, Athletics and Reflections—to contribute to the growth of GHE. Students ask family and friends for donations based on completion of these challenges. At the end of the two-week period, students will celebrate their accomplishments with a fun run.

SOAR-a-thon Fundraising: October 13 - 27

GHE PTA funds programs and services that are vital to our children's experience at GHE. SOAR-a-thon is our biggest annual fundraiser, and your donations go directly to fund educational programming, classroom resources, and enrichment opportunities NOT covered by the school's budget. SOAR-a-thon donations fund Family STEAM Night, classroom resources, academic enrichment grants, Spelling Bee, Falcon Book Battle, Field Day, school musicals, teacher professional development, Falcon's Nest and more!


SOAR-a-thon will also fund our 2023-2024 Community Project! Parents and teachers are currently voting on the Healthy Minds, Healthy Bodies, or Healthy Planet area of focus. 




Once SOAR-a-thon launches on October 13 you can: 

  1. Personalize your child’s fundraising page available on our Shop & Open Forms page. All donations are made on a GHE student’s personal fundraising page. Parent instructions are available here.
  2. Share your child's personal fundraising page by email, Facebook and Twitter to your family & friends. Stay tuned for fun social media sharing challenges on our Facebook page
  3. Ask your child how they SOARED each week and share their accomplishments with family and friends along with a link to your child's personalized fundraising page.




Students earn fun incentives for different donation levels!
The highest earning class in each grade gets a pizza party and $20 book fair credit to add to their classroom library!
If we reach our school-wide $30,000 goal, the Fun Run becomes a Costume Fun Run for K-3 and a Color Run for 4-5! If we exceed the goal, top-earning students will make an ice cream sundae on Principal Walker's and VP Lombardo's heads!
