White Rock Spring Games
REGISTRATION OPENS MARCH 27th!! The White Rock Spring Games will be back and better than ever on May 7th. White Rock Spring Games was created with one idea in mind: to improve local schools. With the help of parents, faculty, and many generous sponsors, this community event raises hundreds of thousands of dollars each year, benefiting students and programs across 31 East Dallas area schools, including Geneva Heights Elementary.
The games are open to boys and girls in grades K-5. Registration fees for each four-person team is $120, with every penny going back to the participant’s school. Last year GH had 42 participants and raised $1,800 for our school. Save the Date and be on the lookout for registration information in the near future. They also offer scholarships through the East dallas exchange club.
Vickery Park Branch Library -
Check out the monthly event calendar from the Vickery Park Branch Library. Plan an afternoon to stop by after school pickup. This new, modern city library reached out to GH to extend an invitation to our students and families to join their events.
