May 2017 Digital Newsletter

Happy May Everyone!

The end of school count down is on! We hope you are enjoying your month, but can you believe that there are only 14 more days of school! Time flies . . .

Below you will find upcoming news & events to add to your calendars. You can also always access this information on the GHSC website in case you forget:

Rock the Walk Update

Thank you to everyone for participating and collecting pledges for this year's Walkathon!

Together we walked over 8,000 laps and collected $40.885.04 to help fund several enrichment programs like Recess 101 and our music program!

Since we not only reached our fundraising goal but surpassed it by almost $5,000, our students will be treated to a special rock concert performed by our very own Guadalupe teachers!

Any student who collected pledges has already received so many of their rocker goodies and on Friday, May 12th we served over 200 students at our Rockin' Ice Cream Party.

On Thursday, May 25th, Principal Izor will be having lunch with over 110 students who collected $150 or more in pledges. Then on Wednesday, June 7th, we will be wrapping up the entire event with an awards ceremony after our traditional Olympic Day.

Thanks again to everyone who helped make this a successful and fun event!

Olympic Day - Wednesday, June 7th

It is that time of year again! It's time for Guadalupe Olympic Day and WE NEED YOUR HELP!

Please sign up to join in the fun! No experience or athletic ability necessary, just a desire to help make the morning fun.

Please sign up to help set up, monitor an activity, or clean up. If you have never experienced our Olympic Day, you don't want to miss this fun event. We kick it all off with opening ceremonies that include a torch run!

All students participate in this event so we need lots of volunteers to monitor almost 600 students through several outdoor stations.


Ideas for Next Year?

We would truly LOVE to have your ideas and time next year. Whether it is an idea for a new family activity, a fundraising opportunity or just a desire to become more involved in your child's school, we welcome you to join us!

Maybe you work for a company who offers matching gifts or could donate goods or services. Maybe you have a talent and a desire to run an afterschool program or event. Or maybe you are new to the area and are eager to get involved in your child's school.

Whether you have little ones at home, work full time or stay at home, we have opportunities for everyone. In order for the Guadalupe Home & School Club to continue to fund and run many programs and activities WE NEED YOU.

Please email us at and let us know you are ready. We will definitely reach out and let you know how you can be involved.

Volunteer Appreciation Event - Friday, June 2nd

Just in case your invitation is still crumpled up in the bottom of your child's backpack or it fell out in transport, everyone who volunteered or donated in any capacity is welcome to attend the Volunteer Appreciation Event being held on Friday, June 2nd.

Please join us at 7:30 am in the Media Center for breakfast and get a chance to meet all of the other amazing volunteers who help make Guadalupe such a great place.

The Guadalupe Home & School Club board members will also be there and would love to answer any questions and hear your ideas on how to make Guadalupe enrichment even better.

So please join us after 7:30 am in the Media Center; there will be supervision for students on the track.
