PTA News/Updates

Give to the Gator Fund: Help Us Stay Connected

Each year, our school conducts one major fundraiser to support the Gator community.  We are once again asking our families, friends, and community partners to give to the Gator Fund.

The Gator Fund provides opportunities, equipment, and supplies that will help us:

  1. Stay CONNECTED through PTA community events, celebrations, movie nights, enrichment opportunities, advocacy, house system fun, the 5th grade party, etc. We cannot let the distance break our family and what makes our Greenwood community so special!
  2. Be PREPARED once HCPS allows our teachers to conduct in-person learning/teaching. The Fund will help create effective outdoor learning environments and provide the teachers with supplies.

Tip: One way to donate to the Gator Fund is through CashApp. If it’s your first time using CashApp, download the app and sign up with the referral code SKPGCLH to instantly get $5 back. That means you can donate $5 to the Gator Fund for free!

 

Join or Renew Your Membership

The best way to stay involved is to join the PTA. Even if you were a member last year, remember you’ll need to renew your membership for this school year to remain connected.
