We are all climbing!Nearly every student from all four Value Schools campuses came together in support of We Climb, the ambitious capital campaign for Everest Value School.

For $1, students participated in Free Dress Day to support the campaign and the extraordinary teachers and students at Everest Value.

It is our job now, to give back to the future generations who will be a part of Everest because we all deserve a good school.”
-- Graciela, senior, University Prep Value High School

Together, students, teachers and parents from all four schools raised over $1,500 toward the We Climb campaign goal. Everest Value’s Student Leadership Committee raised over $500 by selling free dress passes and tie-dye t-shirts!

Value Schools students know that by working together, they can always accomplish more than by working alone. No one knows this more than Graciela, an eighth-grade graduate of Everest Value and one of the first of the University Prep Value High School graduating class.

thermometer“Being a part of the first graduating class of Everest, and experiencing what it is like to not have an actual building when I joined University Prep, I understand the everyday struggle of climbing up many sets of stairs,” said Graciela. “It is our job now, to give back to the future generations who will be a part of Everest because we all deserve a good school. We are all excited and looking forward to help Everest get a new school, too.”

With enormous help from others, Value Schools is now 57% of the way to our $4.0 million goal, and every student, teacher and family is making the trek and climbing!

It was a great day of community building and awareness, and reinforces our students’ understanding that “giving back” is an essential part of their education.
