GHE Parent Teacher Association Membership
Green Hope Elementary’s Parent Teacher Association (PTA) is here to enhance your child’s education by coordinating events and special programs that make GHE an outstanding school. As a member of the PTA, you will have opportunities to influence the direction of our school by working with the principal, teachers and other families to give your child a world-class educational experience. The number one reason to join the PTA is to benefit your child. Our goal is 100% family and staff membership.
Supported programs and services
Here are a few of the things your donations, a portion of your membership dues and time have helped support over the years:
Teacher grants—Each year teachers can submit grants for specific needs in their classrooms such as the class-size carpet mats in all Kindergarten/1st Grade classrooms or grade level-specific classroom text sets.
Improved technology—The PTA has funded upgrades such as renovating the Technology room and placing smart boards in every classroom.
Classroom resources—GHE PTA pays for the licenses of many educational applications used in your child’s classroom including Reading A-Z, Moby Max and more.
Playground enhancements—The PTA funded a new K-2 playground structure and renovated the existing play area and landscaping.
School community events—GHE PTA hosts many events such as Donuts with Grown Ups, Bingo Night and Ice Cream Social that aim to build a sense of community and school spirit among GHE families.
IF I JOIN, DO I HAVE TO...
- Go to meetings?
No. You are always welcome to attend our general meetings though.
- Volunteer or spend a lot of time at school?
Nope! Joining the PTA is not the same as volunteering. If you choose to volunteer we would LOVE the help—but volunteering is not required.
