Wednesday, April 5
8:00 a.m. to 10:00 a.m.
Believe in people, they fly for a day.
Teach them to believe in themselves, they soar for a lifetime
Step inside one of 18 selected Guilford County schools on April 5th to see firsthand what is being accomplished to help all of our students SOAR! Breakfast will be provided as small groups assemble across the district for an eye-opening discussion about the unique assets and challenges at each school.
Education matters. Healthy communities need healthy schools. Take time to visit Guilford County schools with others from our community to see what is being done to educate our children and see how you might be able to get involved. Register today!
Together, we can help our students SOAR to great heights – not just today, but for a lifetime!
