GHS Inaugural Annual Fund Kickoff
Progress report cards were mailed out Tuesday, October 18th. Enclosed in the report mailing was our annual fund letter and Publix Partnership card. Our PTSA is need of funds and we hope everyone can give to the effort. We are requesting $100 per child and in lieu of multiple, small fundraisers (that are taxing to families and volunteers). We understand that not everyone can give at that level, but any gift will go a long way to helping our students and teachers. All donations are tax deductible. Because funding needs are urgent to our school year, we hope to hit our goal of 30k by November 15th. Hitting our goal will let us increase teacher appreciation, enhance technology, fund teacher and club grants, help with the theatre restoration. The Publix Partnership cards are “Giving by Living” and cost you nothing…just remember your card when you shop and that it needs to be scanned at checkout. The PTSA historically has relied on parking income, which is decreasing with Beltline and Uber usage and why we need other revenue streams.
Along with these requests, we hope everyone joins the PTSA. You can join online at and donate to the annual fund at the same time. We would love to see 100% participation.  Go Knights!
