Your Support Matters So Much

Wings, Heart, Annual Pledge Drive 2019

Silver Oak Educational Partnership (SOEP) plans to take to the skies for this school year! We believe that as a community, if we achieve our pledge participation goals, it will not only continue to fund the many classroom enrichment programs, community events, and overall support that SOEP provides for Silver Oak... it will also forge a powerful team of families committed to an elementary school experience for our children that is above and beyond what is otherwise possible.

As a public school... Silver Oak would not be able to provide the high standard of education that we want for our children without the financial support and program management of the SOEP. The state operating budget for Silver Oak does not make it possible to have the enriched curriculum and equipment that SOEP funds and supplements for our kids. Every family's participation in our annual pledge drive is needed and so very appreciated to continue Silver Oak's tradition of excellence in education.

Thank you for helping us fly high for the 2019-2020 school year!

Top Pledge Field Trip Contest


Top Pledges Win a Field Trip to the Uber Campus!

The students with the highest 12 pledges during our Fall Pledge Drive will win a school-day field trip to Uber Technologies!

At Uber, students will enjoy a tour of the campus, giving them the opportunity to experience this transportation networking company's work environment, as well as enjoy lunch on-site, and learn about what Uber does... such as peer-to-peer ridesharing, ride service hailing, food delivery, and a bicycle-sharing system.

NOTE: This field trip will be supervised by our Principal and 2 members of the parent pledge team. Trip date is TBD at this time, but is expected to be scheduled in the October/November timeframe. Permission slips will be provided and must be completed by the specified deadline in order for students to attend. If your child wins a space on the trip, you may choose to opt out if you prefer they not attend.

Rules & Notes

1) To be eligible for SILVER, GOLD, & PLATINUM incentives, one child may be pledged at the desired level, provided all siblings attending Silver Oak have a minimum $350 value pledge. (For example: For 1 child pledged at $500, and the sibling pledged at $350, Child 1 is eligible for GOLD level incentives and Child 2 is eligible for SILVER. If the sibling were pledged less than $350, neither sibling qualifies for GOLD or SILVER level prizes.)

2) In the event a highest pledge contest includes ties, earlier pledges will win based on the date/time of their pledge. Pledges that qualify for the Platinum bonus also qualify for the student field trip contest.

3) Students may only win 1 raffle prize. If a prize is won, the winners name is removed from future drawings unless the prize is refused. To refuse a prize that is won, please email the Pledge Team a minimum of 1 week before the next drawing at soeptopledge@gmail.com. Refusing a prize does not guarantee another prize will be won.

4) The pledge levels and associated prizes are based on personal contributions only. Corporate Matching funds are not included in the personal pledge total amount. The reason for this is such funds are applied for during the pledge drive and received throughout the year if the companies approved them. Our pledge levels are based on personal giving during our pledge drive only.

5) Prizes, trips, and other incentives are subject to possible change. We avoid this wherever possible, but if it is necessary, adjustments to details and offerings may be made.
