GUFFEY SCHOOL RAISES OVER $900 FOR LEUKEMIA & LYMPHOMA SOCIETY
Community service is an important element in the lives of students at Guffey Community Charter School. This year, the graduating 8th grade class joined with The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society of Colorado to raise awareness and funds for childhood leukemia. The student-driven program, called Pennies for Patients, asks students across the country to collect pennies, nickels, dimes and quarters during the campaign benefiting the Society.
This is the second year the 8th graders have taken this on as part of their community service project and they raised a whopping $971.00, surpassing their $800 projected amount by $171.00. The challenge went out to all the classes to set a class goal and if they reached or surpassed that goal, they would win a pizza party for their classroom. We are happy to announce that every class went over the amount projected and a pizza party will be had school-wide.
We want to especially thank businesses and families within the Guffey community that donated to support the battle against childhood leukemia.
Chili Cook-Off winner Paula Milner, representing the Freshwater Saloon, was the people's choice first place winner at last night's school event. Her dish called, a “Bowl of Fireworks, Chili Con-Carne Explosion,” offered 'a bit of heat' and was made with elk meat and lots of chili spices. A huge thank you to all brought their best dish, (yummy!) and supported this event! Almost $500 was raised for our 8th graders spring trip.
Thank you to the PIE makers, PIE buyers and everyone who enjoyed PIE at Guffey School's PIE Palooza. The 59 PIES that were auctioned and many generous donations raised a whopping $5400.00!
Guffey Community Charter School Cookbook has arrived! They are now on sale at the school for $15 each. Bon Appetit from Rural Colorado!!!
Thank you Guffey community for making the children's clothing, game, and toy exchange at our school a huge success. Because of your generosity, many local families will have a very merry Christmas.

Our little school depends very much on the generosity of our community. There are many ways you can help out, from buying cool things, giving some time, or just keeping your propane receipts and box tops. Get the full scoop.
Mrs. P-H's middle school classroom now has its own website! Everyone is welcome to visit and see what her kids are up to, and you students can submit your homework and other projects from home.
The Administrator's 2013/2014 Annual Report to the District and the Guffey community is now available.
