Rock Hop 2016 Huge Success!


The Gilbert Education Foundation and the 2016 Rock Hop Committee would like to say a special thank you to all who attended, donated, and supported our 18th annual Rock Hop.  The evening was another huge success for the students in our district.  With added donations that came in to support Rock Hop 2016, our new gross revenue is now over $153,000!  This event would not be successful without everyone's help.  We are very fortunate to have such supportive families, businesses, and a great community that came together to support the Gilbert Education Foundation and the Gilbert School District.  We are truly surrounded by super heroes in our district and we thank each and every one of you for the roles that you play to help all to succeed!  We truly appreciate your support.

Proceeds from the 2016 Gilbert Education Foundation Rock Hop will be used to purchase technology and support science inquiry and STEM based items/materials.  Rock Hop 2016 will also fund district wide field trips, MS club activities, mini-grants for teachers, and school assemblies/speakers.

Thank you and mark your calendar for next year's Rock Hop on March 4th, 2017!
