WHAT IS GIVE WEEK?
GIVE Week is now in its 4th year! Instead of volunteer-intensive fundraisers that ask our kids to get sponsors or sell products that give back just a fraction of the profits, we are asking that each family make a meaningful donation, whatever that means to you. 100% of that money goes directly to support our school! Our GOAL is to have 100% participation from every family @ Galileo STEM Academy!
This year we are excited to combine GIVE WEEK with RED RIBBON WEEK! We have some fun theme days to help our kids remember their value and to promote drug free awareness in our school. We hope they have a good time dressing up too!
We also have a great tradition of giving back to our community during GIVE WEEK each year. More information on how you can give, which charities we are sponsoring and what you can donate can be found at the bottom of this page.
GOALS AND INCENTIVES:
- Each Elementary Class with 100% participation will get a pizza party!
- 50% Participation from Middle Level will earn them some extended free time, details to come!
- Every Donation over $500 will be entered into a drawing for a VIP Parking Spot! There are two spots this year!
- The class that raises the most money in Elementary and Middle Level, will receive a $100 gift card for their homeroom teacher to use for the classroom!
- Middle Level students financial donations will be entered into a drawing to win 1 of 6 $25 gift cards!
- If we reach $35,000 in donations this will be our only fundraiser this year!
- If we reach our $35,000 GOAL we will have an awesome celebration -FREE FAMILY STEM Night with great raffle prizes, food and drinks!
WHERE DOES THE MONEY GO?
Last year the Galileo PTA used these funds to provide many things for our students and staff to help enrich their educational experience. Here is a break down of the categories where funds were spent in 2018.
