Bingo Night & PTA Meeting - this Thursday, Jan. 23
Join us this Thursday night, January 23rd, for our winter PTA General Meeting PTA meeting at 5:30pm.
Meeting starts promptly at 5:30 pm. If you can't make it, check out our Facebook page where we will be streaming it live. We do not want you to miss any of our important information including: our newest PTA Board members, voting on a proposed budget amendment, and more details on upcoming events like Carnival of Lights and the all-new STEAM (Science, Technology Engineering, Arts and Math) Night.
Then, from 6-7:30 pm is our very popular family Bingo Night. Cards are first come, first serve, so buy yours ahead of time for $2/card. Principal Walker will be our bingo caller and there are tons of prizes with many chances to win gift cards.
Come early and grab a hot dog (veggie hot dogs, too!) from our vendor, Dang Good Dogs. They will be parked right outside the front doors.
STUDENT COUNCIL BAKE SALE
During the PTA meeting & Bingo Night, the GHE Student Council will be having a bake sale to benefit the recent Australian Wildfires. If you and your child like to bake, please either drop off your baked treat to share at the front office on Jan. 23, or just bring it with you to the meeting. Please be advised that this is not an allergy-free bake sale. Cash only. Any questions, please contact us.
MOMS NIGHT OUT - Jan. 30
There's still time to secure a babysitter or have dad "babysit" the kids for Moms Night Out on Thursday, Jan. 30, at Hickory Tavern in PARK WEST Village (would not be the first, and probably not the last time, we've gotten the wrong mega-shopping center with the word 'Park' in it wrong), from 6-9 pm for a fun moms night out with delicious food and drink specials and a raffle for prizes. As a special added bonus, Hickory Tavern has offered to give back 10% to GHE. Sounds like a win-win. See you there!
Interested in getting involved at school, but only have a little time during off hours and want minimal commitment? If so, we want your talents! Contact us.
Displays & Decorations: Have a flair for decorations? Want to help celebrate our activities and accomplishments? We need help decorating the PTA’s glass display cases in the school lobby to coincide with key events like curriculum night and spring carnival. Grab a friend and embrace your inner artist. Time commitment is a few hours 3-4 times a year.
School Supply Kits:Already dreading shopping for back to school supplies next year? Instead, how about working with teachers to update next year’s lists, send in changes to our vendor, and work with the communications team to promote sales of prepackaged school supplies boxes. Time commitment is a few hours in March/April on your own time.
Nominating Committee:This committee is tasked with identifying talented, motivated, and responsible individuals to serve as officers of the GHE PTA for the 2020-2021 school year. We need a non-board PTA member to work with the current board in March & April to develop a slate of nominees and help coordinate the election in April.
5th Grade Ceremony: Calling all fourth grade parents! We are looking for a few parents to plan the 5th grade Celebration Picnic and Promotion Ceremony. Grab some friends, get the inside scoop on what you’ll experience next year, and allow our fifth grade parents to simply celebrate with their child. Get a head start now as the ceremony doesn’t happen until June.
Teacher Appreciation Week:Love your child’s teacher and wish you could do more to show them how much you care? Well, this is your lucky day. Work with the hospitality committee to help plan all kinds of ways to celebrate GHE staff during Teacher Appreciation Week, May 4-8.
If you want more information about any of these positions, or have ideas for others, please email us and let us know which job you'd like to do.
