PTA News

Spring Carnival: The Spring Carnival will be held on Saturday, May 6, and we need your help to make it a success! If you’re able to volunteer, please contact Cinnamon Smith, [email protected], and/or join us at the next planning meeting on Tuesday, March 7 at 6:00 PM in the teachers’ lounge. Silent Auction: Are you getting excited for our Silent Auction??? We certainly hope so—because we are working very hard to bring fun, amazing, cool items to auction off! The Silent Auction will take place during the annual GVE Spring Carnival on Saturday, May 6, 2017 and the proceeds benefit our students. Please remember that the money we raise is used for enriching our students’ lives at Green Valley!!! We need your help, Green Valley Community! We are looking for products, monetary donations and services (gift cards). A few ideas to get you thinking…Do you run your own small business? Do your neighbors have their own businesses? Do you have a favorite local business that you want to help promote? Remember, donating to the auction is a great way to promote your name/product/service to the Green Valley community and garner new customers. And to add to the fun, this year, we are also happily accepting themed baskets. This is your chance to show off your creative skills! Check out Pinterest for some inspiring ideas! And then donate your super awesome basket to the Silent Auction by May 1, 2017. Donation forms will be in the office and on our PTA website at: Look for a few Find Out Firsts for more details. Any questions or personal desire to add to the merriment of the Silent Auction, please call Melanie Greskovich at 301-524-1090 or email [email protected] Thank You! Box Tops Contest Update!: Congratulations to Miss Franciscovich’s class for winning the Box Top competition. They brought in an amazing 1,045 box tops and were awarded 20 Whole Class Bucks for such a great job! In total, we will be submitting 11,456 Box Tops, earing the school $1,145.60. Thanks to all GVES friends and families that sent in all those box tops! A huge thank you to Jodi Best for coordinating this effort and the volunteers that counted and prepared the box tops to be mailed. Spirit Night: Mark your calendars! Our next Spirit Night is Tuesday, March 14 at Chipotle in Mt. Airy from 4:00pm-9:00pm. The PTA will receive 50% back from all sales.
