Please consider supporting students’ international travel by donating to, or volunteering for, the benefit of the Jennifer Price Global Education Leadership Fund (GELF). GELF is a financial aid fund that enables Newton North and Newton South students who could not otherwise afford to travel to take part in international travel experiences through the schools. There are several ways to get involved:
1) Join the GELF Corporate Sponsorships Board and reach out to local companies and businesses. No experience is necessary! E-mail Samantha Mandel, the global education programs manager, to find out more.
2) Join the GELF auction team. The May 9 GELF benefit dinner will include a silent auction and raffle, and we need a small army of volunteers to help us out! E-mail GELF auction chair Lori Garg to learn more.
3) Donate items to the GELF auction. Popular auction items have included craft items, vacation home stays, sporting event tickets, and gift certificates. All donations are greatly appreciated. E-mail Lori Garg to donate.
4) Buy a ticket, or make a donation, to the May 9 GELF dinner. The dinner is a fun, 12-plate tasting event with 200 community members, a live band, and table service by the Newton superintendent, principals, and mayor. Can't attend? Donate to support a teacher to attend the dinner instead, or make a student's travel dream come true!
