Why We Raise Money
The GHSC is responsible for funding SIX major educational programs for Guadalupe’s students which fall outside of the school’s budget. By funding AR, Art Vistas, Ceramics, Project Cornerstone, Recess 101, and Starting Arts our students can experience art, music, and physical education. The majority of our budget $54,000 out of $68,000 for the 2019/2020 school year goes directly to fund these essential programs.
The GHSC also hosts community events each year to bring Guadalupe families together. We kick off the year with the Ice Cream Social in the fall, the Winterfest event to celebrate reading in early December, the School Carnival in the spring, and two family picnics.
The annual WALKATHON is how we raise our annual $68,000.00 budget.
Classroom Giving Drive
The classroom giving drive is held at the beginning of school and is completely separate from the GHSC budget. Money raised from the classroom giving drive funds field trips and classroom spending specific to YOUR child’s class. A small portion also goes to support these school wide programs: the STEAM Lab, Safety Patrol, Mileage Club, special assemblies, and extra books for the Library.
