Friends & family: We can't thank you enough for your amazing support of our SOAR-a-thon fundraiser. We raised $22,899!


We also want to take this opportunity to thank the amazing faculty and staff of GHE! The was truly a school & community collaboration on all fronts.


Our children rocked the challenges and everyone had so much fun! Check out this video montage of students showing us how they soared!


With this year’s fall fundraiser, GHE PTA wants to inspire your children to find out what makes them SOAR. GHE SOAR-a-thon is a virtual fundraiser that promotes growth, inclusivity and community celebration of your child’s unique talents.


This year we're raising funds for an outdoor classroom! This educational learning space will be STEM-focused and aligned with GHE’s curriculum. We have already started meeting with architects, landscapers and educators to evaluate designs, timelines, cost, and benefits for our children.


The outdoor classroom will be a multi-year project and is a significant undertaking for our school. The more we are able to raise, the faster our students will be able to benefit from learning outdoors.


GHE students will join a team, complete the challenges, share their journey and grow with our school community. Each student will choose a team⏤STEM, Outreach, Athletics or Reflections⏤and complete challenges to reach their goal. Like our past fall fundraisers, students will commit to a task and ask for donations based on completion of that task. This year, instead of running, they choose how they will soar.


Each team will have 5 challenges to choose from. Students will be asked to complete at least 3 within their selected team: STEM, Outreach, Athletics or Reflections.  




As your child completes challenges, please send videos or photos with their name and their teacher’s name to greenhopeelementarypta@gmail.com. We will upload them as private videos to the PTA’s YouTube channel for teachers to share in their morning meetings. Sharing is completely optional.


At the end of the campaign we will make a video montage of our students’ accomplishments to share with families on our PTA website and social media channels. If you do not want your child’s video or photo included in the montage, please let us know when you submit your video or photo.


SOAR-a-thon is for all students and will be 100% virtual. Falcon strong and together, no matter the distance!
