PTO ANNOUNCEMENTS FOR THE WEEK OF AUGUST 9, 2020
Look for our weekly announcements to stay up to date on upcoming events, recaps and other important information!
**PARENT TEACHER ORGANIZATION (PTO) MEMBERSHIP**
Please consider joining PTO! This membership drive helps support our children, teachers and staff as we all work together to enhance the education and experiences of our children. The PTO supplies more than 4x the funding that the district provides our children which allows us to provide school supplies, fund campus beautification projects and future technology purchases or upgrades. Stay tuned for flyers being passed out with packets Friday, August 14th!
**READ-A-THON - STARTS SEPTEMBER 21ST**
Read-a-thon starts September 21st and will be going on for two weeks! Welcome back students from break and kick reading into high gear through our Read-A-Thon fundraiser. Students will be asking for encouragement to spend time reading at home. By simply spending minutes reading, students can earn prizes. The more minutes, the better the prize. The more money donations students receive, (all done online - you don't have to collect anything!), the more prizes they will earn. Spread the word to family and friends near and far to sponsor your child to help get them back into the reading spirit and to encourage reading for fun. Materials will be sent out via email with more details.
**NEED CHAIRS FOR UPCOMING FUNDRAISERS**
We are seeking volunteers to chair our upcoming fundraising events. Many of the fundraisers we have done in the fall and winter have either been postponed or cancelled due to the current environment we are in. We are also open to any recommendations or suggestions for additional fundraisers that we can put together throughout the year. The funds raised from the various fundraisers each year helps to support campus beautification projects, helps with the purchase of school supplies and future campus technology purchases/upgrades.
**BOX TOPS FOR EDUCATION**
The BoxTop for Education program is changing. You can now scan the bar code on your receipts through the BoxTop App and it will automatically load the credit to GRDC. Please click on the link below to view the electronic flyer that explains how the new process works.
