A Message From Our PTA Presidents

  • We would like to extend a warm welcome to each of you and your families.  We are very excited about this school year at Gwin Oaks Elementary School!  Our objective as a PTA is to provide funds, programs and services that will enrich and maximize the education of every child. 

    The Gwin Oaks PTA is an integral part of the GOES family. GOES PTA strives for excellence.  We strive to create an atmosphere where both teachers and administrators can do their best work- and so can our children.  To meet this extremely important goal we fundraise and encourage volunteerism.

    We have two major fundraisers during the year. Our biggest fundraiser is Boosterthon Hero Fit Challenge that starts in February 2020.  The funds we raised in 2018 allowed us to help fund a variety of requests for our teachers and staff such as; sensory equipment, media center needs, and technology/literacy resources.  Our yearlong fundraiser is the COIN DRIVE!  Throughout the year, collect loose change that could help change our school.  When you stop by the school, don’t forget to bring your “Change for Change” to drop in the collection barrel near the front office.  We look forward to being able to fund even more this year!

    We also do many wonderful things as a PTA to promote family involvement at GOES.  In the fall, we sponsor Campus Beautification, Bingo Night, Skate Night, and Holiday Shoppe, just to name a few.  We encourage ACTIVE participation from Gwin Oaks parents and the GOES community.  Each one of us has different skills, talents, and resources that are desperately needed to make Gwin Oaks what it is. We all want the very best educational experience for our children, and that is why we must all individually do whatever we can to make that happen.

    Our dedication is to enhance the experience of our children. Please join us, the entire PTA board, and the GOES community as we embark on the quest to ensure Gwin Oaks reaches its greatest potential.  Joining is easy and it really makes a difference.
