2021 GHE SOAR-A-THON

This year’s fall fundraiser wants to inspire your children to work together to make GHE SOAR. Last year, your student chose a team; this year, we are one team: Team SOAR. GHE SOAR-a-thon is a fundraiser that promotes growth, inclusivity and community celebration using your child’s unique talents to make GHE Soar.

 

 

Congratulations, GHE!! We raised over $33,000 this year! The students will get to SLIME Principal Walker and Assistant Principal Lombardo. Principal Walker will sleep on the roof of the school. And, most importantly, we will be able to continue building out Falcon's Nest and offering the many great programs GHEPTA sponsors at the school. 


WHAT MAKES YOU SOAR?

GHE students will join their classroom team, complete the challenges, share their journey and help GHE grow as a school community.  Each day the classrooms will work on a collective project for that day⏤STEM, Outreach, Athletics and Reflections⏤and complete challenges to reach their goal. These challenges will contribute to the growth of GHE. Like our past fall fundraisers, students will commit to a task and ask for donations based on completion of that task. At the end of the two-week period, students will celebrate their accomplishments by running on the track at the SOAR-A-THON FUN RUN, much like 2019’s famous Turkey Trot. (Back by popular demand: a COLOR RUN for 4th & 5th grades!).

 

We need your help for the FUN RUN. Sign up to volunteer!

 

WE’RE FUNDRAISING FOR GREEN HOPE ELEMENTARY!

This year we're continuing to raise funds to fill in Falcon's Nest outdoor classroom, while also enhancing GHE PTA programs across the board! We want to give our students more academic programs, increase campus improvements and add teacher grants. This is our largest (and most memorable fun) fundraiser of the year.

 

Falcon's Nest outdoor classroom is a multi-year project started in 2020 and a significant undertaking for our school. GHE raised funds from our incredible corporate sponsors, grants and our families last spring for construction. Falcon’s Nest needs furniture, rain barrels, irrigation system, solar energy, plants and more academic stations. This educational learning space is STEM-focused and aligned with GHE’s curriculum. The benefits for our children are immense. Now we need our families to come together and ]get Falcon's Nest to the finish line. The more we are able to raise, the faster our students will be able to benefit from learning outdoors.
