Welcome to the Groves PTA Webpage
Dear Groves Families,
The Groves PTA would like to welcome our new families and welcome back our returning families for the 2020-2021 school year. This school year will truly be unlike any other. The Groves PTA is here to support our Falcon Family as we continue to navigate these unusual times together! It is our utmost priority to keep our members safe and healthy while meeting the educational, as well as the social & 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. Here 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 “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.
We are very excited to work with our new principal, Dr. Susan Smith. Actually, it’s welcome back because she was already a member of our Falcon Family as a Groves Alum! We will be hosting a Facebook Live Event- “Get to Know Dr. Smith” Q & A interview soon, so start thinking about what fun facts you want to learn about our new principal!
With state budget difficulties on the rise (and, of course, a global pandemic), your donations to the Groves PTA are needed now more than ever to ensure that quality programs and technology 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. Because we will not be able to run the Groves Garage Sale (our only fundraiser), our entire PTA budget will be determined this year by the success of our PTA Membership drive, and Direct Donations. Please click and print the PTA Membership Form and return it during Registration.
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 chairmen of standing or special committees. With the $30 membership fee, your family will receive one Groves directory – additional directories can also be purchased.
PTA Direct Donation Campaign - Each year families spend money on all kinds of things, but what is worth more than a quality education and enriching school programs at Groves? 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! Any amount is appreciated.
Student Activity Grants -This program distributes grants to student clubs, programs, boosters and activities at Groves to help cover or offset costs for the upcoming year. This is also completely funded by parent donations. Suggested donation is $25 but all contributions are very much appreciated
Here’s to a wonderful 2020-2021 school year! GO FALCONS!
