Welcome to GES PTA!
GES PTA needs your support. Our goal is to reach 502 members (a PTA member for every GES student) and to raise $10,000 with our Greenback fundraiser. Your support helps provide for your children, the school and the staff. Remember both mom and dad should become PTA members!

What You Can Do!
How can you help make GES a better school for your child? Help out a little! Volunteers are needed to help with special activities offered to students and staff.
You could help coordinate volunteers for Art Gallery Guides or Jr. Achievement
Join the PTA
If you do nothing else, please consider joining the PTA. Just click the link to join right on this website, it is fast and easy. You need only join once a year. Both mom and dad can [should] join, as well as relatives, seniors, etc..
Also check us out on Facebook and Twitter to keep up with the latest news. Follow the links below to find us. With so many ways to communicate we can save money and be "green" at the same time.
Scour those backpacks for flyers! We all know they have a way of disappearing between school and home! Check here, our website, regularly. We will continue to try to keep content fresh, timely, and relevant. Email anyone on the PTA board if you have questions or suggestions. Stay in the loop! Come to our general meetings. Check out the calendar for meeting times.
We need help! All year, every year. It takes a village, really, to accomplish all we do for the children. Please consider volunteering some time this coming year to help us out. You'll be glad you did. If you would like to volunteer at GES or have any questions, please email the volunteer coordinator.

Grapevine Elementary is a TreeRing Green Yearbook School! in 2014-2015 we sold 350 yearbooks and with TreeRing and their partner, Trees for the Future, 350 trees were planted in Grapevine Elementary's name!
Volunteer Background Checks
Ready or not, it's almost time to start thinking about back to school! If you plan to volunteer at all this year (field trips, Friday reader, etc.) you will have to be background checked. The process is simple, and many might have already done it as part of Skyward registration. Please take a minute to make sure all adults have been submitted.
