A MESSAGE FROM THE CO-PRESIDENTS ...
Dear GHS Families,
As we near Thanksgiving, we can’t help but feel grateful for the generosity of your volunteer time, donations and support.
The GHS PTA Membership Campaign is still underway. A huge thank you to all of our members for your generous donations. We currently have close to 1,200 members, but we aren’t stopping there! Please help us get to 100% participation by joining now. It’s not too late! Just click on the link to Membership Toolkit.
Our annual fundraiser, Paint the Town Red, was held on October 25th, at Richards in Greenwich. We sold over 200 tickets, had a robust silent auction and an exciting live auction! Thank you to all who attended the event and made a donation.
Through your generous support, we have already helped fund over $20,000 in field trips for 900 students, $3,800 for AP Exam fees and SAT/ACT Test Prep for students with financial need and $2,400 in school improvements, including the purchase of two picnic tables for an outside courtyard. In addition to supporting our students, we will continue to support our GHS staff.
Please join us on December 10th for our 2nd PTA General Meeting at 7:00pm in the GHS PAC. Along with the GHS Guidance staff, the PTA will host:
The College Process; What Every Parent Should Know About Planning for and Applying to College. This panel presentation is led by members of our GHS Guidance Staff. Learn about creating a college list, standardized testing and the SAT vs the ACT, the timeline of tasks to prepare for applying, and an overview of all of the resources available at GHS. Come with questions!
Feel free to email us with any questions or concerns at GHSPTA@ghspta.org and use the GHS Website for your first stop for information.
Thank you for your support,
Maureen Bonanno & Terry Lamantia Cataldo
