GES PTA is selling candy grams! Orange order forms were sent home with students. Each candy gram is $1. We ask that you completely fill out the number of candy grams you want to purchase (we must know who it is being sent to, the grade they are in, and their teacher), attach an envelope with cash or check, and return the form and payment to your student's teacher by October 20th. All candy grams will be distributed on October 29th.
There are extra copies of the candy gram order form in the secure vestibule. Thank you for supporting this fundraiser. All funds raised will go to the Literacy Fund.
We are looking for sponsors for our Fall Carnival scheduled for Saturday, November 6th. Would your business or family like to sponsor one of our games or booths? We would greatly appreciate your support! If you are interested in being a sponsor, please email our Carnival Chair, Tricia Downes at firstname.lastname@example.org or PTA President Lyndsey Hill at email@example.com.
GES Spirit Night's
GES PTA would like to thank our Spirit Night Coordinator Courtney Hedgpeth for setting up our Spirit Day at TORCHYS. Thank you so much to everyone who came and supported PTA and our school!
GES PTA Fundraising
The GES PTA raises funds throughout the year to contribute back to GES in a variety of ways. Each year, we carefully review our goals and fundraising options to select the right opportunities for our school. We work with the GES Principal and staff to ensure that our goals align with the needs of teachers and students.
Last year, our most successful fundraisers were our Chasing The Magic FUNd Run and our Shop & Support Programs. We also hosted a number of events, Spirit Nights and work with some retailers to participate in their give-back programs.
Based on feedback from our membership, we have opted to not ask the children to directly sell goods or services door-to-door.
Check back for updates on this year's fundraising opportunities.
Another large portion of our funds comes from direct donations, which are tax-deductible!
Thank you so much for your support of the GES PTA and our GES Stars! With your support, we are excited to continue to provide valuable resources to our school.
