Welcome to GES PTA!
GES PTA needs your support. Our goal is to reach 520 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!

You can help in so many ways!

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.
