When does the PTO meet?

What does the PTO do at GES?

The PTO works to support the students and teachers/staff of GES. The PTO works with various stakeholders to identify ways we can help both with volunteers and financially. There are several fundraisers held throughout the course of the year that impact the projects we facilitate and fund.

Some recent examples of ways the PTO supports GES:

  • has funded field trips, including all students K-4 to the Education Day Field Trip at Dodd Stadium
  • facilitates Staff Appreciation events and staff dinners during parent-teacher conferences
  • supports enrichment classes during and after school such as "Music and Movement" classes
  • hosts age-appropriate social events, such as the "Kids Invite Someone Special" Glow Dances
