Why You Should Join The PTA
The PTA is a way to be involved in your student’s educational environment. It is one thing to hear about your child’s day directly from he/she; however, it is another to be personally engaged in their daily life. It is great when you can place your child’s friends/teachers with their names and actually know who your child is talking about when they speak with you about school.
Childhood goes very quickly and your child is constantly learning and watching everything you do. When he/she sees their mom or dad volunteering at their school they learn the importance of volunteering, as well as understand that their parents are actively involved in their education.
Your GES Electronic Grade Lists are compiled and created for you by the PTA. It is the ONLY way for you to have access to your child’s classmates contact information so that you can invite friends/be invited to birthday parties.
The PTA plans and completely funds school activities like the Back to School Picnic, Donuts for Dads, Muffins for Moms, Black History Month Program, Pajama Reading Night, Book Fairs, and International Night. These fun events are enjoyed by your children and the entire GES Community.
The Patriot Electronic Newsletter information is compiled for you by the GES PTA in an effort to keep you informed of what is happening at our School.
School assemblies are often organized by your PTA!
We need more help!
The PTA is a volunteer run organization
Please consider volunteering for just one event or one hour of your time so that we can have successful events. Without volunteers, we cannot continue to hold the events on our calendar.
