Welcome to the 2015-2016 school year. The George White PTA has begun its annual membership drive to kick off another exciting school year of enrichment programs for our children. Programs such as Meet the Masters Art, Science Lab with Mr. Fogg & the Discovering Science program, K-3 Music, Computer Lab instruction & PE are not provided by the school district due to state budget cuts. It is our goal to raise enough money annually to provide these important programs to the students at our school. Without enough funding, we will be forced to cut some of the programs that our kids have become accustomed to. Our membership goal this year is to raise $45,000 & have 100% membership among the families and teachers at our school.
The membership packet came home in your child's blue envelope yesterday. We ask that you fill out the forms and return them to your child's teacher as soon as possible so that we can begin planning the enrichment programs for the school year. We have multiple Pay-Pal payment options available, just click on the “Become a Member” tab above.
This year, as an incentive for getting your forms turned in quickly, your family will be entered into a raffle to win a Go Pro Hero Waterproof Camcorder. Two Go Pro Heros will be raffled off, with the first drawing being held at flag salute on Monday, September 14th and the second drawing on Monday, September 21st. Be sure to get your membership forms turned in before Friday, September 11th in order to be entered into BOTH drawings.
