In Newton we are lucky to have many wonderful programs supporting our children. One such program at the two high schools is the Global Education Leadership Fund (GELF), which benefits lower income Newton students aspiring to participate in our international educational programs.
Here are three ways in which you can support GELF:
1. Bid on an auction item, including one by Principal Griffin who has donated four Children’s Museum tickets AND, if desired, Lunch with Mr. Griffin OR challenge Superintendent Fleishman in a one hour tennis lesson and much more.
2. Come to the upcoming GELF dinner on March 24th, which includes a five-course tasting menu with selected wines inspired by the various international regions our scholarship students have explored. Your hosts and servers for the evening will include the Superintendent, and our high school, middle and elementary school principals. The evening concludes with dancing to live music. You can purchase seats, $125/person, by clicking here or sending a check to Newton Schools Foundation, 100 Walnut Street, Newton MA 02460.
3. Can’t make the dinner but still want to support GELF efforts? Consider donating to Support a Teacher to attend the event ($75/person) or just mail a check to the address above.
