Your Support Matters So Much

Wings, Heart, Annual Pledge Drive 2019

Silver Oak Educational Partnership (SOEP) is looking to fly high as we begin the 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.

Help us take to the skies for the 2019-2020 school year!

Annual SOEP Pledge Drive

Fall Pledge Drive Is Open!

Make a Pledge Heart

Silver Oak is so very fortunate to be a part of a community that supports its public school, and raises it to the highest standard possible. We ask for all student families to once again partner with Silver Oak this year and participate in the Fall Pledge Drive.

In order to fund all existing SOEP-PTO commitments to provide classroom enrichment programs, events, grants, and support for the 2019-2020 school year, we need to raise $350 per student. We ask that every family participate and contribute what you can in support of our school at this time.

Fall Pledge Drive funds provide for all of our K-6 classroom art & music programs, as well as our classroom technology investments, and grants for each teacher to help with the cost of classroom expenses. We also support operational costs of our S.T.E.A.M. Lab to ensure our onsite lab remains cutting edge, and is used by all students and teachers to its fullest potential.

Please pledge your support today! The PLEDGE FORM is currently live and ready to accept your contribution. If your company has an employee donation matching program, please check to see how to submit your pledge contribution for matching, and allow your company to double your support to Silver Oak!

Thank you in advance for your support!

SOEP/PTO Pledge Drive Goal
Fall 2019

Goal: 90%
(550 Students)

Goal: $350/student

WHY Should I Pledge?

  • SOEP spending is prioritized to go directly into the classrooms and benefits all students.
  • SOEP invests over $350 per child for all students at Silver Oak throughout the year in the way of classroom enrichment programs, materials, technology, and our S.T.E.A.M. Lab operation.
  • SOEP pledge dollars raised are spent during the CURRENT SCHOOL YEAR. We commit to programs and instructors in advance, and work to raise the needed funds each fall. Should we come up short, immediate adjustments would need to be made.
  • FRINGE BENEFITS: Your child could qualify to receive various prizes and incentives according their pledge level. These prizes can include field trips, gift cards, game tickets, memorabilia... and much more! Prizes List Coming Soon!

How Can I Pledge?

Families can pledge for single or multiple Silver Oak students at once. There are two ways you can submit your pledge:

  • ONLINE PLEDGE: Your pledge information and payment may be submitted online. Please *CLICK HERE* to visit now.
  • PAPER PLEDGE FORM: Forms will be sent home via your child's classroom. Completed forms and payments may be submitted to your child's teacher, or deposited in the PTO mailbox in the office. (if pledging for multiple children, just submit the form to one teacher). Please make checks payable to "SOEP" (= Silver Oak Educational Partnership)

What Are the Different Pledge Levels?


    • $500+ - GOLD
    • $350 - 499 - SILVER
    • $100 - 349 - BRONZE
    • $25 - 99 - MEMBER

We encourage all families to pledge $350 per student to allow us to meet our current program and materials investments. If you are able to pledge a higher amount than $350, it allows SOEP to explore other ways to invest in our classrooms and better support the needs of our teachers.

Extracurricular programs are organized by SOEP/PTO, but they are NOT FUNDED by pledge dollars. Programs such as after school band, choir, Math Olympiad, Math Kangaroo, and theater are self-funding programs that are paid for by registration fees.

We strongly believe that your investment in the SOEP is a good one... it directly benefits every child at Silver Oak, and continues to make our school an extraordinary learning environment. Thank you for your support.
