Park Hill Elementary held its annual auction the last weekend of February. The work of the parent volunteers and generosity of many families resulted in over $160k in donations for the school. Given how underfunded education is across the country, but particularly in Colorado, this money allows Park Hill Elementary to provide many additional services for their students - more paraprofessionals, additional mental health supports, more technology, newer text books, etc.
As a partner in PHNEE’s mission to engage our community in improving equity in all of our elementary schools, PHE offered auction attendees the chance to make a donation to the other Park Hill elementary schools with greater need and less capacity to raise such a large amount of money.
We are incredibly grateful to the PHE community for donating nearly $6,000 to this cause
. This money will go a long way toward increasing equity across our neighborhood schools. We salute the PHE community for their generosity. We recognize that, while all of our schools have dedicated and committed parents, the capacity to give financially isn't the same between schools. This generous donation helps increase equity across our neighborhood. If you didn't get a chance to participate, but would like to contribute to this worthy cause, you can go here and donate
(tax deductible) through our parent organization, Civic Canopy.
Thanks to everyone who donated. Our neighborhood deserves it.
