Rainbow Pledge Drive

Silver Oak Educational Partnership (SOEP) is chasing rainbows 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. 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 see what lies at the end of the rainbow for the 2018-2019 school year!

Top Pledge Field Trip Contest


Top 20 Pledges Win Field Trips to Google or the Apple Store!

The students with the highest 20 pledges during our Fall Pledge Drive will win a school-day field trip to either Google (10 students) -or- the Apple Store (10 students).

At Google, students will enjoy of tour of the campus, giving them the opportunity to experience this tech giant's worker-friendly environment, as well as enjoy lunch on-site, and learn about what Google does.

At the Apple Store, students will pariticipate in a coding workshop, with levels appropriate for both upper and lower grades. Students will take home a new view of just how innovative they can be with Apple products. They will enjoy a fun lunch on-site at the mall at California Pizza Kitchen prior to returning to school.

Student winners will have their choice of destination beginning with the top 10. Choice will continue in order until all slots are filled for both trips. Both destinations should prove to be a memorable and fun day!

NOTE: Both field trips will be supervised by our Principal and 2 members of the parent pledge team. Dates for each trip are TBD at this time, but are 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 a 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.
