Welcome High School Community,
On behalf of the Garden City Parent Teacher Association, I would like to welcome you to the 2021-2022 school year and introduce myself as your PTA Director for the High School. It was awesome to have all the students back in the buildings the first week of school. I'm very excited about the great things we have planned for our students this year, and I sincerely thank you for your continued support of the PTA. I look forward to working with all of you this year!
The High School is happy to announce the Freshman Bash is back! The event will be held at the GCHS on Friday, October 1st. Details were emailed to the Class of 2025 the first week of school. In case you missed it, click this link for details on how to help and sign your freshman up. We hope to see everyone there.
We kicked off our Fall Sportswear Sale earlier this month. Make sure to check it out at www.gardencitypta.org/sportswear. We will be hosting two cash and carry events at St Paul’s on Saturday, September 18th and Saturday, October 2nd from 9am to 1pm. All proceeds go directly to the PTA to benefit our students. The last day to order online is Saturday, September 25th so don’t miss it!
I hope you will join me in supporting the PTA. Just like you, PTA has supported your child from the time they entered kindergarten and continues to support them through their senior year at the GCHS. Your PTA membership helped us begin the year with Welcome Back Breakfast for the entire high school staff. Don’t forget to join the PTA and SEPTA!
We hope that you can join us at our PTA meetings. PTA meetings provide parents with school updates from our principal, our guidance department and teachers, as well as from our guest speakers. The meetings are a great way to get involved, meet other parents and learn what is going on in and around school. I look forward to seeing you there. This year we will continue to offer more evening meetings, a combined meeting with the Middle School and two All-Schools PTA Meeting to help keep everyone informed.
If you have any questions, please always feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also follow us on Twitter:
