A MESSAGE FROM THE CO-PRESIDENTS ...
Dear GHS Families,
Welcome back! We hope you had a restful and relaxing summer break! We look forward to another great year with your continued support and we welcome all of our new families to GHS. Please click HERE for the Back to School Checklist.
Your PTA has been busy getting ready for the new school year. Last year, the GHS PTA successfully moved its directory, communications, volunteer sign ups and membership store an online platform, MySchoolAnywhere (MSA). MSA has now merged with MembershipToolkit MTK). Membership Toolkit will still be a convenient way for you to access the GHS PTA calendar of events, the online store where you can join the PTA and be eligible for our great incentives, sign-up to volunteer or to attend events. PTA members have access to the student and staff directory conveniently located on your phone via the MembershipToolkit App or by logging in online. All you have to do is join the PTA!
The GHS PTA will host its first PTA Meeting & Volunteer Fair of the year on September 5th at 12pm in the GHS Media Center. This is a great opportunity to talk to PTA Co-Chairs to find a volunteer position that is right for you. The meeting will also include a school update from our Interim Headmaster, Ralph Mayo, and our new Superintendent, Dr. Toni Jones.
Last year, the GHS PTA spent $160,000 for field trips, state of the art classroom technology, vaping detectors, scholarships, new furniture for the media center and so much more. We spent $14,600 on our teachers for Teacher Appreciation Week and Back to School lunch as well as funds for Guidance Counselors to attend the NACAC National Conference where they stay up-to-date on trends and admission issues affecting our students.
This year, your generous support of the GHS PTA will allow us to provide over $170,000 of assistance for curriculum enrichment, student scholarships, GHS community outreach projects, staff support, and more! Your donation is important for our high school to continue to step ahead and engage in some of the best practices of the most competitive schools in the country.To accomplish this great work, we need you to join the PTA and give generously.
Get ready to party! The GHS PTA cocktail party, Paint the Town Red, will be held on October 25th at Richards in Greenwich. Mark your calendars for this special night to socialize with GHS parents while supporting our students and teachers. You don’t want to miss it!
Thank you for your support,
Maureen Bonanno & Terry Lamantia Cataldo
