Our first PTA meeting is scheduled for Tuesday, October 3 at 7pm in the Media Center (Library). Meetings last about 60-90 minutes, and we always love to see new faces! Free child care is available in the gym. Come learn more about what’s going on at GES, and how you can support our school and your child.
Please join your GES PTA in the 2017 Rafael’s Race in order to raise money for student field trips.
Rafael Martins was a student at Greenbelt Nursery School and Greenbelt Elementary School. He was born with a rare disease called VATER syndrome and passed away on October 20, 2009 while he was in the 4th grade. In 2011, teachers, parents, and friends of Greenbelt Elementary School started a race in his honor.
The 1K fun run/walk and 5K race raise funds to support student field trips at Greenbelt Elementary School and provides a donation to Camp Sunshine, a retreat for kids with life- threatening illnesses and their families. Drawing tickets are also sold ($2 each or 6 for $10) at the school and Co-op Grocery store for prizes like tickets to the Newseum, baseball games and more. T-shirts are also available for sale. Students (current & former), parents, friends and community members are all invited to participate or volunteer.
