Glacier Hills is a united community where all learners are awakened to their possibilities.

Hello Glacier Hills Community,

Kiss the Pig Fundraiser – Wow, what a success!  We would like to thank everyone that participated in the fundraiser in one way or the other.  We reached our goal!  Mrs. Nelson, the faculty, and I will be kissing Wilbur the pig on Monday morning.  Our goal was $7500 but we made $12,000.  The community sent in 6000 pounds of soft goods which brought in $1340. We had around $1300 in proceeds from the STEM night between donations and pizza sales. There were $4642 in online donations.  The penny wars were the real winner bringing in $4654. The students were so excited to bring in their change for the penny wars, it was our favorite part of the week!  Thank you again for participating in this fundraiser, we feel your support!

We would like to thank the PTA for assisting with the collection of soft goods and helped us transport them to SAVERS.  This was a big job and we could not have done it without them!


STEM night Family Fundraiser – STEM night was also a success.  We had a wonderful night that was well attended. It was great to see families participating in STEM activities throughout the building. We hope to make STEM night a yearly tradition.
