To All Families

First 2016-2017 PTA meeting on Thursday, October 13th at 8:30 AM in the library.

Welcome!

The Garden School PTA is dedicated to securing an excellent education for our children and supporting the values of Garden School. We sponsor several events that strengthen the Garden community and the educational partnership between home and school.

In addition, the PTA organizes fundraisers that support these community events and enhance our school’s ability to offer our children an excellent education through donations to Garden’s annual budget.

Participating in the PTA is fun and easy and can positively impact both your child’s and your own Garden School experience. We know most parents work and you can manage your involvement to suit your schedule.

Our calendar lists the many events we have planned for the upcoming school year. For the school year 2016-2017, we are looking for help with several events:

  • Spring Book Fair

  • Holiday Gift Boutique Decorators, Wrappers. Personal Shoppers

  • Movie Night

  • Walk-a-thon

  • Need more information before you commit? Have an idea for a different event? Contact us and we’ll help you make it happen. Email: pta@gardenschool.org

    The important thing is to let us know you are interested! Share your good ideas, your energy, your time and talent, help your school and have fun in the process!

    Examples of Garden events include: Halloween Party, Movie Nights, Holiday Gift Boutique,  Walkathon

    We invite everyone to attend our first 2016-2017 PTA meeting on Thursday, October 13th at 8:30 AM in the library.
