Each winter holiday season, GHE PTA helps our school counselors collect clothing and toys to provide gifts for GHE families who need a helping hand. This year we've put together a gift registry on Target.com so families can benefit from your generosity. Please plan purchases so they arrive at the school on or before December 10.
If you don't have time to shop, please consider providing a tax-deductible monetary contribution. Donations will be used to complete the Holiday gift drive. Anything remaining will be placed in the GHE Helping Families fund, a year-round resource used to help GHE students facing hardship.
GHE's student council is also hosting a warm clothing drive Nov 29th - Dec 16th. Collections from this drive support both Helping Families as well as Note in the Pocket. Baskets are setup in the front lobby for coats, scarves, hats, mittens/gloves and socks. New unworn items would be best, but they will also collect "like new" items.
The Carolina Hurricanes have teamed up with Harris Teeter's Together in Education program to help raise funds for GHE PTA. The Hurricanes will donate $10 for the purchase of every lower level ticket and $7 for every upper level ticket! Purchase tickets to select games in December, January, March and April online at this designated site and specify "Green Hope Elementary PTA (4301)" when selecting your seats.
And don't forget you can earn money for GHE PTA every time you shop at Harris Teeter by linking your grocery reward accounts to GHE PTA. Ask your cashier to link your VIC card to our school's TIE code (4301), login to your account and make the change online, or let GHE PTA take care of it for you. Last year we raised almost $3,000 through merchant rewards programs like this.
It's time for GHE's annual yearbook cover contest! Open to all interested 4th and 5th grade students, one winner will be selected for the front cover and one winner will be selected for the back cover.
Each winner will get a FREE yearbook! Checkout the specific submission guidelines for additional details. All entries are due to Mrs. Driggers by January 21st, 2022.
