Are you getting ready for the holidays? Do you need a candy cane to cope with finals? Then buy a Holi-gram for your friend, or for yourself, to show your appreciation and holiday spirit. From December 4-11, you can purchase a Holi-gram from Pep Club members in the Pike’s Peak Lobby during lunch and after school until 3:15pm. You can choose by color or holiday, with 4 different choices to choose from. Remember, some sweet candy cures all your school problems, so don’t hesitate to buy a Holi-gram from Pep Club!
With 2017’s Colorado Gives Day approaching on Tuesday, December 5, the Denver Scholarship Foundation invites the George community to donate to the GW Future Center. Donations will go toward DSF scholarships, which support George Washington students as they head to college. GW students have secured over $3 million in scholarships through DSF since 2007, and donations allow the Foundation to help make college possible for new graduating classes.
For last year’s Colorado Gives Day, the GW Future Center received over $1,800 in donations – the most of any DPS Future Center High School! This year, to support the generosity of the GW community, every dollar donated to the Future Center will be matched by the Colorado Opportunity Scholarship Initiative (COSI), and boosted even further by the Community First Foundation and FirstBank $1 Million Incentive Fund. Donation matching starts now and lasts until the end of the day on December 5, and all contributions made within the next week will count toward George’s total on Colorado Gives Day.
If you would like to contribute, click HERE, scroll down, and select George Washington from the list of DPS High Schools. If you have any questions, contact Jasmine Rainey at email@example.com. Thank you for your support!
