IMPORTANT UPCOMING PTO DATES
We are still looking for room parents!
We still need more Room Parents! Our goal is to have at least one room parent per classroom. With Covid impacting our nation, we need to come together and support our teachers and students in the classroom. This year, the room parent job will focus on being a liaison and strong communicator between the PTO and classroom teacher.
At least one parent per classroom is needed to act as a point person for the teacher and parents. Also, we are hoping to be able to organize a couple
of fun events in the spring, so we will need your creative skills! Go to PTO signup link and sign up to become a Room Parent for your child’s classroom. Thank you!
If you have any additional questions, please contact Room Parent Coordinator, Vanessa Kiely, at 317.625.1052
Spirit Wear is Now Avbailable
Geist Gators spirit wear is now available to order! This year, the orders will all be done exclusively online. Please visit the website below to place your order no later than October 2nd. Items will be delivered to your child at school so please do not select shipping to your home.
This will be one of the big fundraisers for the PTO this school year. Some of the funds raised in previous years are being used to add equipment to our school playground.
Order your spirit wear today and help the PTO continue to support our school and teachers!
We appreciate your support,
This beautiful apple was grown on the south end of our bus lot. We have two apple trees in honor of two students who died while they were students of Geist Elementary since 2004. We honor them through our Geist Memorial Scholarship each spring which is supported by the GES PTO and our PTO Earth Day Committee helps to maintain our apple trees! It is wonderful to see the memories of our students continue to flourish on the GES campus!
Mark your calendars for a Dine to Donate October 6 at Marco's!
The GES new playground equipment is installed and students are starting to enjoy the financial investment of the GES Community and the funds provided by the HSE School Board. Thank you to all donors in providing a great place for our students to play, climb and interact!
We need box tops! If you haven't already, please download the Box Top for Education app and start earning for Geist Elementary.
Support Geist Elementary While Shopping From Home!
Do you shop at Amazon or Kroger? If so, there is an easy way to donate a portion or percentage of your purchases to Geist Elementary. Although the percentage may seem small, the total amount back to GES adds up significantly the more people that register! These rewards programs do not cost anything to sign-up and are easy to register by using the following steps:
Amazon: Anytime you make a purchase on Amazon, go to Amazon Smile to shop at www.smile.amazon.com. Choose Geist Elementary PTO, Inc as your supporting organization and GES will receive 0.5% of your total purchases.
Kroger: Register your Kroger Plus Card at www.Kroger.com/account/enrollCommunityRewardsNow. Then, sign into your Kroger account and link your card to GES’s organization number which is GU130. Then, shop and swipe your Kroger Plus Card at the checkout and GES will earn cash! We had about 140 registered cards last quarter and GES earned over $4400 last year!
Thank you for registering and giving back through these programs!
