Hamilton Southeastern Education Foundation's 9th Annual Game Day

Game Day is going virtual! While we will miss hosting Game Day at Conner Prairie this year, HSEF looks forward to providing a new opportunity to support public education while engaging in a little friendly competition. HSEF’s 9th annual Game Day will be a fun, interactive Virtual Trivia Competition with five customized rounds for HSE Schools on Friday, February 19, 2021, at 6:30 pm. HSEF encourages you to gather (safely) your trivia savvy friends and fans of HSE schools to support the largest annual fundraising event for all Hamilton Southeastern schools. Please visit www.hsefoundation.org/events/game-day/ to learn more and register your team today! GES PTO will have a basket up for auction, so get your bids ready!

The PTO is looking for volunteers for the 2021-2022 School Year!

If you are interested in learning more about the PTO or getting more involved please reach out to our board presidents at gesptopres@gmail.com. We currently have an opening for a staff appreciation chair and co chair as well as a room parent coordinator. Additional spots may open up before next school year so whether you have an hour a week or a month to give, please consider reaching out to learn more about how you can be involved next year!

Easy Ways to Support GES!

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!

Thank you to everyone who has already donated!

As you head to the store, please consider picking up an extra box of Kleenex, antibacterial wipes or hand sanitizer to keep our classrooms stocked this winter. Donations can be dropped off in the front lobby or sent in with your students. Thank you for all that you continue to do while we navigate our way during these unprecedented times and work to keep everyone healthy and safe!

Calling All 2nd Grade Families!

The PTO is asking 2nd grade families to help us support our staff this year by bring in non perishable snacks, drinks, and coffee pods to stock the staff lounge throughout the month of February. Donations can be sent in with your student or dropped off in the vestibule at the front of the school. The staff has appreciated all the snacks they have received so far and it has been a great pick me up throughout the day! First grade families can begin bringing in snacks in the month of March.
