Snowflake Fund
Drumroll please….The inaugural Snowflake Fund Committee is excited & humbled to announce that we raised $25,500 for holiday gifts for the teachers, TAs, & staff of our beloved school! We exceeded our goal by 21%!!! Each individual will receive a gift of $375 before the holiday break.

In a year of struggle and constant cancellations, Great Hearts families have profoundly demonstrated that generosity, love, and appreciation of the Great Hearts team are most definitely NOT canceled. The committee sincerely thanks each & every family that participated in the Snowflake Fund drive as well as our incredible matching funds donor. We also thank the PSO leadership & Great Hearts administration for your support & encouragement.

With “Great”ful Hearts,

Team Snowflake
