There IS School Monday, October 9!
The NEW Grewenow Family & Teacher Community (GFTC)
Grewenow Elementary School is excited to introduce the Grewenow Family & Teacher Community or GFTC (pronounced "Giftsy") This organization (similar to a PTA/PTO) is for any family member looking to be involved in their child's education and give back to the Grewenow School Community. The group has adopted by-laws, elected officers, and will become a 501(C)(3) non-profit organization to not only serve the school, but also raise monies to enhance programming for all Grewenow children.
The GFTC Leadership team is comprised of:
- C.J. Mora - President
- Michelle Ruggles - Vice President
- Ben Borter - Secretary
- Diannah Davis - Treasurer
Meetings will be held the first Wednesday of each month at 6:00PM in the Grewenow School library. All are welcome, membership is open, and if you are interested in learning more or, better yet, getting involved please contact GiFTC.firstname.lastname@example.org
