This year's campaign will kick off Thursday, August 27.  Please join us for the INVEST social on Thursday, August 27.

Julia Green Carnival

The JG Carnival includes carnival games, bounce attractions, a bake sale, crafts and fun! The carnival is a well-loved family and community event and it will be a highlight of fall. Make plans now to join us on Friday, September 25 for this fun, family event!​


Starting on January 22th, Read-a-Thon is an intensive, two-week focus on reading. During Read-a-Thon, students collect money from sponsors who can make contributions based on the number of books or pages a student reads or may donate a lump sum for the student’s reading efforts during Read-a-Thon. While Read-a-Thon is our second largest fundraiser of the year, even more important is the jump we see in our student's reading levels and enthusiasm for literature. As we start the second semester, many of our young hornets show a tremendous amount of growth following this program, and our older hornets also show a spike in reading comprehension. So get ready to curl up with a few good books with your Hornet this winter! 

Spring Party

Spring Party is the adults' turn to celebrate! Parents, teachers, and staff alike will all come together to celebrate our love and support of Julia Green. 

Hornet Hustle & Gather on the Green

These events are sure to be the highlight of your spring! Students work hard to complete their own "mini-marathon." Hornets spend the Spring months walking and running to log 25 miles in the weeks leading up to the Hornet Hustle. Then our students come together to complete a one-mile, fun run at school for the final mile of their marathon. Once the race is completed, families grab a blanket and head over to the lawn for a fun family night outdoors at Julia Green!
