At C2E, we desire to create well-rounded students by pairing academics and extracurricular activities so students have every opportunity to succeed and grow. The generous partnership of our community through fundraisers, volunteering, and support goes a long way in providing the valuable resources necessary to achieve our vision of igniting lifelong learning and individual excellence through STEAM-focused education. 

This year, we’ve set a goal of raising $5,000. Below are some of the wish list items we hope to be able to provide for our teachers. Even the smallest contribution goes a long way!

C2E Giving Tree

The Challenge To Excellence Winter Giving Tree 2022

New Clothing Drive: Starting November 28, 2022 through December 20, 2022


The students and staff at Challenge To Excellence Charter School are excited to announce the return of our annual Giving Tree Community Outreach Program. We are so happy that we are continuing this wonderful tradition this year! We are partnering with a Denver area non-profit organization who offers clothing free of charge to students of low-income families and families in crisis in the greater Denver Metro area. The organization with whom we are partnering is Clothes To Kids of Denver.

We are asking our C2E families, staff, and anyone from our surrounding community to help us donate new clothing for these deserving students — It all starts with your generous heart! Stop by our Giving Tree and grab a tag or two! The process is very simple and no wrapping of your donation is necessary.

*Giving Tree Directions:

  1. Take a clothing tag of your choice off one of the trees in our main school hallway located at the front of the school entryway. (You may take as many tags as you wish!)
  2. Purchase the clothing item in the size specified on the tag. You choose the color/print of the item.
  3. Place the item/items in the bag from the store that you purchased it from and attach the tag to the bag by tying the string to the bag. You may sign the back with your family’s name, but know that it is not necessary.
  4. Bring the bag back to school and place it under the C2E Giving Tree by December 20, 2022.


 *Select a tag, purchase the item, attach the tag, and place the bag under the Giving Trees in our main school hallway!

We look forward to providing this opportunity for Challenge To Excellence Charter School, of Parker, Colorado, to give back to the surrounding communities this winter. Helping students feel good about themselves with a positive image for school is a gift that is priceless! Thank you in advance for your support for Clothes To Kids of Denver this winter! We can hardly wait to deliver your generous donations to give the gift of new clothes to deserving students who so desperately need them!
