Donations Needed

“Giving is not about making a donation.  It’s about making a difference.”                                      -Kathy Calvin, President United Nations Foundation

Let’s join together to make a difference in the lives of those affected by the Hurricanes…

For the entire month of November we will be collecting donations for the following items:
Book Bags
Pencils & Pens
Colored Pencils
Index Cards
Binders & Dividers
Loose Leaf Paper

This is a great opportunity for our children to give back to their community, their world, and their fellow classmates!

PTA Meeting & Budget Vote

Hello Members,

Please join us on Wednesday, October 10th at 4:15pm for a special general membership meeting. We will be voting on a budget amendment.  We encourage all PTA members to attend if at all possible. We need at least 20 members present to vote on these changes.

There will also be a guest speaker at the meeting discussing the upcoming election in November.  This should be a great conversation with a lot of valuable information presented.

It’s more important than ever these days to be involved and to advocate for our schools and our children.  We sincerely hope that you will be able to join us next Wednesday.  The media center will be in use so we will be meeting in a classroom.  Signs will be posted pointing the way.

Children are welcome, a PBS movie will be shown. We will also have Athens High School Key Club volunteers who are able to watch children in the next classroom.

Best regards,

OGES PTA Board of Directors

Celeste Smith, President

Ayanna Kozlow, Vice President

Julie Steet, Treasurer

Shanon Douglas, Secretary
