Dear Groves Families,
The Groves PTA would like to welcome our new families and welcome back our returning families for the 2023-2024 school year. The Groves PTA prides itself on supporting and celebrating our school community, and we remain committed to making it our highest priority to meet the educational, social and emotional needs of our students, educators, and families.
Whether a new PTA member or a returning member, we thank you for your contributions, time, and commitment to our organization. As a member of the Groves PTA, you are a voice for our kids and part of the largest child advocacy program in the world. At Groves, we have an amazing community of students, parents, teachers and staff. Contributing to the Groves PTA only enhances and strengthens this relationship.
Please join the “Groves High School PTA” FACEBOOK GROUP- We have a wonderful Groves High School PTA Facebook group to provide and share helpful information about our school activities and to be a positive support group for parents and guardians of students at Groves High School. You can ask questions, provide advice and feedback, and make new connections.
PTA Meetings will be held the third Wednesday of each month at 6 p.m. All are welcome.
Your donations to the Groves PTA are needed to ensure that quality programs and resources continue to be available to our students. We are hoping that ALL Groves families will become members and participate in giving to the Groves PTA. The PTA budget will be largely determined by the success of our PTA Membership drive and direct donations. Please visit our website to join and make donations. Wylie E.

PTA Membership Dues - While all parents are welcome to participate in PTA-sponsored activities, only PTA members have the privileges of making motions, debating, voting, holding office, serving as chairman of standing or special committees. With the $50 membership fee, your family will receive on-line access to the Groves directory.
PTA Direct Donation Campaign - We hope that this year, in addition to joining the PTA, you will make a Direct Donation – this puts your money to work for your student’s education and helps to fund enrichment programs and support the educational goals at Groves! The suggested donation is $75 per family, but any amount is appreciated.
Here’s to a wonderful school year! GO FALCONS!
