Help with Gator Gala

Volunteers are needed the week and morning of the event. Families not attending can volunteer the night of the event. Please call the office for more information.

We have several items that need to be picked up in Fort Worth. Please let us know if you are available. Please bring your auction items in ASAP, but no later than Friday, February 19.

Help Needed

Hello Fellow Parents,
We are looking for another family to ride share with in the South Arlington, Mansfield, or South Grand Prairie areas. We are happy to pick up your student up in the mornings and drop them off with our son Maverick at school. In exchange, we are asking Maverick be picked up from school and taken home. We would meet you at your house immediately or just moments after. We have moved to Midlothian and it is taking 1.5 to 2 hours each way for drop off and pick up. The afternoons are harder for us, because our daughter in Midlothian gets out of school at the same time as Green Oaks. We pick her up then head to pick up Maverick and the construction through Arlington is a nightmare after 3 pm. Please let us know if your family is interested. Chris 817-681-4604 Christie 682-365-3590 or red1lea@hotmail.com
Thank you,
Chris and Christie Lea

Green Team

If you have any unused pots for plants, Green Team would love to have them. The Green Team has been busy planting seeds and re-potting seedlings in the green houses. They recently planted donated iris and lily bulbs in front of Green Oaks. If you find yourself thinning your flower beds this spring, the Green Team would enjoy caring for your extra plants.
