Message from the PTSA President

Hello Friends and Parents of Grand Arts,
There is so much that we want to accomplish this year but in the interest of being brief, I will cut to the chase.

There are two things that we do:

  1. We organize school wide programs. Including:  Senior Grad Night, PTSA Reflections Contest, CPR certification, AP Exam Sponsorship, Teachers Appreciation Day, just to name a few!
  2. We help fund various school-wide events and raise money to help fund all of our VAPA academies.

There are two things that you can do:

  1. Join a committee and volunteer your time.
  2. Give money—either by making your tax-deductible contribution on our online fundraising site
    https://fundly.com/grand-arts-annual-giving-campaign#
    or do your regular online shopping using our Grand Arts supporter marketplace. Every dollar pushes us closer towards achieving our goals.

Our PTSA has officially launched our 2017-2018 Annual Giving Campaign and this year we have gone green. The more money we raise, the more we can do for Grand Arts, our teachers and for our students.  Everybody benefits.

Thank you.
Lesley Goldberg, Grand Arts PTSA President
