Welcome back 2016-2017 Polar Bear Families,
This is going to be an awesome year for GPES PTSA as we have some new programs that we are really excited about! With the new programs, we also have a new fundraiser that we think the students will have a lot of FUN with. We have new parent volunteers on the leadership team this year who have stepped into their roles with enthusiasm.
Thanks to the suggestion from two PTSA members, we will have a Science Fair this year! This event will be for ALL students, Kindergarten – 5th grade. They will be judged by teachers and science professionals in the community and there will be prizes. But more than anything, we hope to foster a new love for science or an interest in an area a child never thought to pursue. Look for more info in a few months in the Glacier Express!
At our Celebration of Learning this year (Date TBD), we will not be having an Art Auction this year. We wanted to give the Art Docents (and parents) a break in making and purchasing those priceless pieces of art. Our thought is to switch up a bit. We will instead be having a Silent Auction! We will be collecting items from businesses in the community and will auction this pieces off just like we did with the Art Auction. This is where we need YOUR help! If you have a connection to a business, let us know! And if you are interested in chairing or co-chairing this fun volunteer role, please email me! I’d be happy to sit down with you and go over details.
