Welcome back Geist Families

We are so happy to be back at it in 2021! We hope everyone had a great winter break and remained safe and healthy. We are excited for 2021 and are planning fun and exciting things with our students and staff including our disABILITY program and Earth Day activities. If you are interested in learning more about the PTO or getting involved, please reach out to

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 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 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!

School Donations Needed!

As we head back to school, teachers and staff are in need of some extra supplies. Any extra boxes of Kleenex, antibacterial wipes and hand sanitizer are greatly appreciated. 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!

Attention 3rd Grade Families

The PTO is asking 3rd grade families to bring in non perishable snacks and drinks to stock the staff lounge in January. 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!

We need box tops! If you haven't already, please download the Box Top for Education app and start earning for Geist Elementary.
