Our Annual Glacier Peak Sneak!
Get ready for an exciting tradition that's just around the corner – the annual Glacier Peak Sneak! If you're new to our Glacier Peak Elementary (GPE) family, allow us to introduce you to an event that's both a heartwarming community gathering and an important fundraising endeavor.
Years ago, we took a stand against the typical fundraising methods that involved students going door to door or outside companies taking a share of the proceeds. The result was the creation of the Glacier Peak Sneak, a check writing campaign that embodies our values and directly benefits our school.
In the coming weeks, we're excited to kick off the Sneak, our sole major fundraiser for the year. Your support during this campaign goes a long way in enhancing the educational experience for our students. From classroom essentials like rugs and pencil sharpeners to motivating prizes for students and staff, your contributions directly enrich the learning environment.
But it doesn't stop there. The Sneak's impact extends beyond the classroom. The funds raised also make possible captivating field trips, engaging extracurricular activities, and inspiring assemblies that broaden horizons and ignite curiosity in our students.
We deeply understand that everyone's circumstances are unique, and any level of contribution you can make is genuinely appreciated. Your generosity, whether big or small, helps us build a stronger, more vibrant community.
As we gear up for the Glacier Peak Sneak, stay tuned for more details on how you can get involved and support our school. Your continued dedication is the foundation of our success, and we're immensely grateful for your ongoing support.

Building Healthy Communities
Have you had a chance to attend a Building Healthy Communities event? This year’s first event is on September 14th from 6-7:30 p.m. at the Educational Support Center (1500 E. 128th Ave). Join us for a showing of Screenagers Under the Influence, a documentary that examines how the tech revolution has reshaped adolescence and its effects on substance use. This film explores strategies to encourage healthy decision-making and support teen mental health. Learn more about our teens’ current reality of being flooded by images on social media, movies, and TV shows about vaping, drugs, and alcohol. The main focus of the evening will be identifying practical solutions for keeping our teens safe in a changing world.
