Parent Teacher Organization

The GSES Parent Teacher Organization (PTO)

Our PTO is the vibrant, “grassroots” part of the GSES community. PTO meetings allow us to:
• Identify and support enrichment opportunities for students and teachers
• Share news and information about developments and the school
• Raise ideas and input from parents and teachers about the direction of the school
• Plan and organize support for school functions and fundraising activities

PTO fundraisers generate dollars that expand and enrich our school. PTO funds have supported:

• Technology Enhancements and Purchases
• Faculty Continuing Education and Professional Development
• On-Site Theatre Productions
• Field Trip Subsidies
• Teacher Start Up Costs
• Author Visits
• Teacher appreciation Week

PTO Meetings

The GSES PTO typically meets at 5:30 pm on the third Tuesday of each month during the school year.  Meetings typically last no longer than one hour.  Child care is provided free of cost and food is provided for all children and adults.  All parents and teachers are welcome and encouraged to attend and be involved.
