Notes from the PTO


Thank you to everyone who helped us make the Gator Gallop a success. We were able to raise a total of $41,360 to meet our school goal and we received great feedback from parents, kids and staff. The pictures that follow illustrate the fun everyone enjoyed throughout the day.


Fall Festival is rapidly approaching and we have some exciting things planned including a great silent auction, DJ, balloon artist, photo booth, glitter tattoos and more. Look for the silent auction information to be sent out prior to the event so you can start your shopping and bidding early! In the meantime, if you would like to sign up to help the night of the event or you have older students who would like to earn service hours for NHS or NJHS, please sign up here: https://signup.com/go/zGRfLXN. Adult only positions are noted as such.


We have extended the ordering date for Fall Festival tickets to Thursday, October 27th. If your child earned free tickets as an incentive, please turn in your ticket form, along with how many tickets your family needs.


We would like to say thank you to the parents who continue to send surprises to the school from our Stock the Lounge Amazon Wish List. Here were just a few things that arrived at the school on October 12th!

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!

Soda Drinkers! This is for you!!

If you are a soda drinker, Coke Rewards can be used to benefit Geist PTO! When you make Coca-Cola purchases, you simply enter the product codes here: Coke Donations (or google Coca Cola Gives)and our school receives a donation.
