Membership Levels and Ways to Join

Our Membership Goal - 100% Parent Participation!

Every voice and every membership matters when it comes to making your child’s education the best it can be. To achieve this goal, we need all parents and caregivers to enroll today. The more members we have, the stronger we are, and the more influence we have in decisions involving the welfare and education of our children.

Did you know?  Our PTA is one of the few centralized units in the state; allowing you to join just one-time regardless of the number of schools your children attend.

Please consider joining at the GC PRIDE or Family levels to help us reach our goal of one adult membership per caregiver of children in our public schools.

Our Membership Levels
