Dear Green Hedges Families,
                                      
“I just wanted to send you a note to tell you how impressed I am with your distance learning program. We love the structure so much and all of the teachers have been fabulous. He gets up early every morning ready and excited to learn. I can't believe how quickly you were able to get the program running for our children. You guys are incredible and I am so grateful for all that you are doing to make this difficult time more productive and enjoyable. I feel so grateful and blessed to be part of such an amazing community.” -Current Parent

Thank you for the outpouring of appreciation for all that our faculty and staff are doing every day to make this difficult time as "normal" as possible for our students. It is remarkable to see how teaching has shifted so swiftly and seamlessly to this online platform and to see our faculty embrace it wholeheartedly . This truly showcases their expertise in a way that many of us were not fortunate enough to witness first-hand when our students were on campus. Seeing our teachers in their element every single day has been a truly beautiful thing to experience. 
It goes without saying that this time in our history is unprecedented and that as a nonprofit organization, we are looking through a magnifying glass at everything we do to plan for the future. It is as true today as ever that your support truly keeps our wheels turning. Following the Gala Auction, we took a breather to pause and reflect on this pandemic and execute a successful Distance Learning program. Six weeks along, we believe that now is the right time to reconnect with our community on the important work of fundraising.
 
We have $15,000 left to raise to bridge the gap to accomplish our goal of raising $140,000 before the end of our fiscal year on June 30, 2020 . One hundred percent of the Board of Trustees, faculty, and staff have given to the Green Hedges Fund Work Wonders campaign. If you are able, please click a button below to show your strong support for the Green Hedges Fund . It truly is the engine that powers our professional development for our faculty, the technology for our students and faculty that made the transition to distance learning so efficient, and the "extras" that help our extraordinary faculty to do such important and remarkable work every day with our students as they continue to go above and beyond.
So please, work wonders on this #GivingTuesdayNow -- help us get to 100% participation and $140,000 by June 30 to continue to fuel the extraordinary work of our faculty and the Green Hedges mission.
