Dear Prexie Families and Friends:
Tomorrow is Giving Tuesday and the GWMS PTA is kicking off the Honor Roll of Donors Campaign for the 2022-2023 School Year! Our goal is to raise $12,000 between now and December 17th.
The PTA exists to support our children, faculty, and administrators – and every dollar you contribute assists in that effort. Your generous contributions allow the PTA to support GWMS teachers, staff, and families in important ways, including funding for teacher grants, teacher and staff appreciation events, end-of-year socials for all grades, and the family emergency fund.
Our first goal is to raise $4,000 for our teacher grant fund by Monday, December 5th. What do teacher grants fund? So far, the PTA has purchased Lego robotics equipment for Mr. Clemmons and Spanish edition literature (such as Julius Caesar, Fahrenheit 451, and Animal Farm) for Ms. Vitale’s 8th grade class. Teachers have used the grants to fund special experiences for their classes or to celebrate student achievement. Let’s make sure we continue to fund these great ideas!
Del Ray Landscapes is offering a huge incentive for giving early – the first 50 donations of $100 or more will enter a drawing for a $2,500 credit for design and installation of a native- or stormwater-based garden! Every $100 donation gets you a chance to win. So, if you donate $200, you’ll get two chances to win…$500 gets you five chances.
Please consider giving this Tuesday to the GWMS PTA so that we can continue to support MORE programs, opportunities, and the needs of our children, faculty, and administrators.
To recognize the generosity of our families and friends, donor names will be listed in the Honor Roll of Donors and posted on the GWMS PTA website and published each week in the Town Crier. Donors can opt out of this recognition if they choose. ALL DONORS will be recognized in our Honor Roll of Donors, no matter the amount of the contribution.
All contributions are TAX-FREE and you can donate using this link: https://gwmspta.memberhub.com/store/items/804928
We appreciate your support for our wonderful school!
