A MESSAGE FROM THE CO-PRESIDENTS ...


Dear GHS Families,

As we enter into a new year, we can’t help but feel grateful for the generosity of your volunteer time, donations, and support this school year.  In addition to our mission we have two goals this year. The goals are to better communicate the work of the GHS PTA and to inform and engage our community.  We transitioned from a paper directory to an online directory through a new platform, MySchoolAnywhere, allowing us to better communicate with our parent community.  With your generous donations, we were able to fund field trips, speakers and other programs to enrich the classroom experience. We hosted a very successful event at the Bruce Museum, Paint the Museum Red, where members mingled and took part in the auction and games.   

For the second part of the school year, we will continue to advocate on behalf of our families for the BOE’s Operating and Capital  Budgets. We will host two PTA meetings with speakers that you don’t want to miss. On January 31st at 7pm we will host a panel of experts to talk about vaping, a growing health risk for our teens. In March, we will host a speaker to address the issue of teenage anxiety.  Please help spread the word about SummerFare on January 23rd. This event, our 2nd largest fundraiser, gathers over 100 camps, programs and teen employment opportunities for parents and students to peruse.

Based on feedback from parents, GHS staff and students, the PTA will purchase a few vaping detectors for use in targeted bathrooms at GHS and more comfortable chairs, end tables and charging stations for the media center.  The PTA also made a donation, represented by a piano key, for the new Steinway grand piano for the PAC.

We are looking forward to seeing you at our workshops and events!  Feel free to email us with any questions or concerns at GHSPTA@ghspta.org and use the GHS Website as your first stop for information.

Thank you so much for your continued support!
