get-involved

The success of Garden Hills Elementary is dependent upon the efforts of involved parents and dedicated teachers working together! Our PTA,  Acorns to Oaks Foundation and GO Team perform invaluable services and support to GHES: Our PTA provides a myriad of great social events for the students and school family; the Acorns to Oaks Foundation fundraises through community corporate sponsorships, the Annual Fund Campaign and our yearly Spring fundraiser, Evening in the Garden, to provide financial support for curriculum, program, and campus improvements; and our GO Team puts parents and community leaders at the table for helping make decisions on budget and other considerations that affect GHES.

JOIN THE GHES PTA…
The PTA is our Parent-Teacher Association, and the core of our school family! We ask that every family join the PTA, because it benefits all of us– students, teachers and parents alike. The dues ($10 per member) are used in support of our teachers, the purchase of materials for incentive programs and field trips, and for events we hold throughout the year. To learn more about the PTA and how to join us, click here.
