A MESSAGE FROM THE CO-PRESIDENTS ...
Dear GHS Families,
On behalf of the GHS PTA Board of Directors, we would like to thank all of our members for supporting the PTA!
Even though the school year changed dramatically this year, your support of the PTA, GHS staff and students never wavered. With your generous contributions, we had our most successful Teacher Appreciation Week ever. In addition, we purchased science equipment and cutting edge teaching tools for the classroom, and picnic tables for the courtyard. You helped our students through outreach and scholarships, and enhanced their learning experience through curriculum enrichment experiences, diversity week and amazing speakers. Your funds have helped support our teachers and staff in countless ways.
With your dedicated volunteer time, we hosted a back to school teacher luncheon, a new teacher breakfast, a successful membership drive, a fun, lively parent social, informative meetings, and Summerfare. We were unable to do our normal Teacher Appreciation Week lunches, but we provided gift cards to each and every one of our GHS staff, due to your generous donations. You donated hours of your time to help out in all 5 houses, the Science wing, Student Employment Services, Student Activities, Counseling and Career Center, Media Center in addition to giving tours to new families. We recognize that you have worked tirelessly, behind the scenes, to ensure that GHS is the best place for our students.
We would like to wish you a relaxing and fun filled summer break.
Please look out for a PTA email in August with volunteer and membership opportunities for the 2020-21 year. We hope to see you in September at our first PTA meeting of the 2020-2021 school year.

- We provide over 300 volunteers and thousands of hours of help in various departments of the school.
- 84% of our 2017-2018 budget was dedicated to curriculum enrichment and student services.
