As we usher in cooler temps, the PTO is also bundling up and buckling down to bring great winter activities, both in school and out, to the Granby community. The PTO’s major fundraiser for the 2019-20 school year, a combined Jog-a-Thon/Fall Family Festival, was held on Oct. 19, with more information forthcoming in the December issue of the Drummer. We would like to say “thank you” to all our volunteers, vendors, families and sponsors for their contributions and assistance in making the day a success. If there are any community businesses that would still like to sponsor the Granby PTO for the 2019-20 School year, please email firstname.lastname@example.org. We have exciting incentives to offer back to all our amazing sponsors.
Stay tuned to the Granby PTO website (granbypto.org) for more information on the exciting programs to come this winter. We will again host a free evening with Riverside Reptiles split into two nights, one at Kelly Lane and one at Wells Road.
More info to come.
The PTO merchandise committee will be selling amazing new Granby gear at the Holcomb Farm Holiday Market on Dec. 7. Come on down and purchase some great Granby Gifts for the holidays.
A few reminders:
Please send in your Geissler’s receipts over $35. Send them to school with your student, drop them in the front office at Kelly or Wells or simply drop them off at the customer service desk at Geissler’s and mention they are for the Granby PTO. The money we receive back from Geissler’s really adds up; we have received over $12,000 for the 2018-19 school year. You DO NOT have to have a student in our schools to participate in this amazing give back program. Please continue to support the local businesses that support the PTO.
The BoxTops program has now gone digital. Download the easy BoxTops app on your phone and see how easy it is to scan your receipts and have boxtops applied to our schools’ accounts. Receipts MUST be scanned within 14 days. Thank you for taking the time and making the effort with the transition to this new system of submitting BoxTops.
When you shop on Amazon (as we all do, especially with holiday shopping about to start), please set Amazon to Amazon Smile (smile.amazon.com) and identify “Parent Teachers Organization Granby” as your charity of choice. The PTO earns back 0.5 percent with every purchase.
Thank you again to our wonderful Granby community for all your support.
