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!

Calling All 1st Grade Families!

The PTO is asking 1st grade families to help us support our staff this year by bringing in non perishable snacks, drinks, and coffee pods to stock the staff lounge throughout the month of March. 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! Kindergarten families can begin bringing in snacks in the month of April.

Yearbooks are available until March 15
