Annual Goddard Gallup FUNdRUN

Wednesday, September 14, 2022

Mark you calendars for the 2022 Goddard Gallop Fund Run! Last year was a huge success. You raised over $45,000!! Can we raise even more this year? 100% of your donations went directly back to the school in funding teacher grants. Our teachers and students are very excited to see changes across the school. Thank you for your donations - they mean so much! See pictures below of some items bought with grants you have funded.

Please check back on ways you can help!

Teacher Testimonials

6th Grade Language Arts:

"The 6th grade language arts teachers used the grant money to publish individual anthologies for each of the 6th graders. They got to write their own poetry, journals, and stories and then illustrate their pieces. Each student will be able to keep this 20-page, color book to remember their historic 6th grade year."


7th Grade Math:

Geoboards - Great for kinesthetic learning (graphing lines, plotting coordinates)


8th Grade Math:

Interactive Flat Panel - Great for students to present their thinking to the class!

PTO - As always, I am humbled and grateful for all the support you give students, teachers, and everyone at Goddard. With this year's teacher grant I purchased 24 charging cords for 6th grader computers. Due to the district's budget constraints, 6th graders received some older Chromebooks. Not only that, but there are three different types each requiring a different type of charger. Our 6th grade teachers were having difficulty helping students keep their computers going for the day so the chargers were a lifesaver. Thank you very much.
