It will also be used in the yearbook unless you have sent in the request for it not to be.

We want to show our teachers love this spring. Check out this Amazon Wish List if you would like to send a special book to GH for a classroom library.

Ways to Volunteer!

We are currently setting the PTA Board for next school year and looking for new members as well as returning veterans. Please consider joining our dedicated PTA Board for 23-24. Email me for details and questions! We will set the board for next year this March-April!

This spring we will need volunteer support for PTA with field day and other potential school events. If you are interested in getting involved in PTA, please contact our Volunteer Coordinator, Gaurange Robinson at

DISD First Step to Volunteer!

In order to volunteer for school events you must be registered annually in the DISD Voly system. Please take time today to sign up! This insures all of our volunteers know the safety guidelines of helping in our schools and pass a background check.

We need volunteers for these upcoming events!

Lunch with your Cub!

Click to schedule your lunch time with your GHE Cougar Cub. There are now slots available Tuesday-Friday and not a limit of one visit per semester. (But please don't take advantage and sign up for every day.) Please email or call Ms. Rios at school with questions.

Feed The Teachers

We have a Amazon Wish List for teacher snacks. You know they need extra energy to keep up with all of our kiddos!! The teachers no longer have a vending machine for cokes and snacks so Ms. Lane has created a snack station for our staff. Let’s help her keep it supplied all winter! Please visit the link and order some snacks for our dedicated staff! (Thank you to Jen Strunk for setting up this project.)

White Rock Spring Games

The White Rock Spring Games will be back and better than ever on May 7th. White Rock Spring Games was created with one idea in mind: to improve local schools. With the help of parents, faculty, and many generous sponsors, this community event raises hundreds of thousands of dollars each year, benefiting students and programs across 31 East Dallas area schools, including Geneva Heights Elementary.

The games are open to boys and girls in grades K-5. Registration fees for each four-person team is $120, with every penny going back to the participant’s school. Last year GH had 42 participants and raised $1,800 for our school. Save the Date and be on the lookout for registration information in the near future. They also offer scholarships through the East dallas exchange club.

Vickery Park Branch Library -

Check out the monthly event calendar from the Vickery Park Branch Library. Plan an afternoon to stop by after school pickup. This new, modern city library reached out to GH to extend an invitation to our students and families to join their events.
