The GFES PTA is dedicated to assisting the administration of our school in enriching the education and daily lives of our children. This is done by promoting good student character, well-being, and educational success through strong parent, family and community involvement. The PTA encourages volunteer support in the classrooms and works collaboratively with teachers and the administration so that they may better focus on the tasks at hand. We assist in providing financial support to close gaps in funding so that our children may have the best tools to learn with.
The GFES PTA mission is multi-faceted, to raise funds for initiatives such as these:
- Expanding technology and equipment to the classrooms;
- Providing improved playground equipment and supplies
- Providing needed materials and supplies to classrooms, to art and music programs, to the reading specialist and the library, to PE programs and the like;
- Supporting specific school communities such as the learning disabled, English-as-second language, and gifted and talented.
These initiatives help to enrich and enhance the lives of our children. GFES is proud of our strong community and family support, which allows so much to be possible!
