A BIG Thank You to our Greenspun Community!!!
I love our parent volunteers and our community partners, and I just want to say a BIG THANK YOU for your support and generosity. Without your help, our staff would not be able to offer the array of educational opportunities that support our students’ learning.
Because of your support, our students are able to participate in programs that assist them in building life-long skills. They are able to engage in competitions that boost their confidence in their abilities. They are able to experience field trips in which they build upon classroom instruction, explore new environments, and make valuable connections with their peers. And most importantly, they are able to grow into well-rounded and productive individuals because of these opportunities.
These experiences would not be possible without your support. There are not enough words to describe how thankful we are for you. We are truly blessed to live in such a caring community that is committed to the success of our Greenspun students!
