Order School Supply Kits for next fall: Click on the School Supplies link to order online with a credit card (or download an order form to send in with a check). There is a small convenience fee for online orders to cover credit card costs. Orders are due by August 1 -- please order early! Assignment books are included in the cost of the kit for grades 3-6 ONLY. Second graders will need to wait until classrooms are assigned, as not all second grade teachers require them!
Sign up NOW for early fall volunteer needs at the link below! We're hoping to convert to online sign ups & save some paper!
Battle of the Books (grades 3-6): Information for grades 3-6 has already gone home with students -- GIS book lists can be downloaded here, 5th/6th grades are together: 6th_Grade_Battle_Books.docx
GIS students need to sign up soon to participate!The Battles for GIS will take place May 7,8 & 9 for grades 4,5 & 6 respectively. There will be an after-school dodgeball tournament or movie option for all 4-6 grade participants -- tentative date May 16! Third graders still wishing to participate should contact their teacher or Mrs. Flere if they haven't received the list of books. Terracycle News: Click on the Terracycle tab above to see the list of all acceptable items -- primarily includes items that are typically not able to be recycled.

Bins for foil juice pouches, foil lined bar wrappers (granola, rice krispies, etc), GoGoSqueeze or any squeezable fruit & chip/cookie wrappers. Please remind your kids to use the bins, we turn trash into free cash for our schools.

The Helpful Ace Place is the new PTO-sponsored school store at GIS -- store is closed for the school year, and will reopen at the open house at GIS. Kids can purchase assignment books, notebooks, pens/pencils, and any hard to find items on their school supply lists, including tissues and wipes. All proceeds from this shop directly benefit our schools. We are looking for helpers to run the store once a month beginning in the fall of 2013 -- email if interested!
Auction 2014: We're looking for some team leaders and creative input -- send an email to Julie if you're willing to lead a subcommittee (donor acquisitions, decorations, etc). Official volunteer forms will go home with students in the fall, but planning has already begun!
Attention Amazon shoppers: click through the PTO's Amazon Associates link, or directly on the logo below for our school, every time you shop! The PTO earns free referral cash for every purchase! We have the potential to bring in thousands of free dollars for purchases that you're already making! Shop for gift cards and more. Make the link a bookmark, and click through every time you purchase! You MUST click through the designated Granville K-6 PTO link in order for our schools to receive credit for your purchases!
Assignment books for grades 2-6 are only available directly through the PTO. Kindergarten and 1st grades DO NOT need assignment books! Send a note to the PTO through your student's teacher or order online and your student will receive his or her book the next day at school. Check out the School Supplies link at the top of this page to order or for more information regarding 2012 assignment books! Contact the PTO at email@example.com.
Like what the PTO is doing? Please consider donating if you haven't already this year! We take pride in the fact that GES/GIS students are not asked to sell candy, magazines and other items as fundraisers -- please help us keep this tradition alive! PTO funds help pay for cultural events like field trips, author visits, Science Nights, Reading Programs and so much more! All money raised through the PTO is used to enhance our kids' educational experience -- it's completely reinvested within our schools and may be tax deductible.
