Where Are They Now?
Calling All Germantown Bulldog Alumni! At Germantown Elementary, one of our biggest priorities is to provide our students with a foundation for learning that will help lead them to success later in life. After talking to a Germantown alumna this weekend, I walked away feeling so proud of her accomplishments. It spearheaded an idea to start a Facebook series called, “Where Are They Now?”. With that being said, I am looking for any and all graduates of Germantown Elementary who would be interested in being spotlighted in our new Facebook series, “Where Are They Now?”. If you are interested in being part of this series, simply click here for more information.
The Alibi Fundraiser
The Alibi will be hosting a fundraiser on behalf of the school district August 24-30. Ten percent of all food purchases made during this time frame will be donated to the PTA. This is a great opportunity to support a local business and the school at the same time.

Save the Date – Saturday, October 18th
Trivia, Silent Auction, Oral Auction, 50/50 Drawings and Much, Much More!
Without a doubt, technology is a key component in teaching and raising a child in the twenty-first century. As members of the Germantown PTA, we are committed to helping the school provide our children with the best technology we can. The PTA is planning our annual fundraiser which is scheduled for Saturday, October 18, at the Germantown American Legion. Please mark your calendars today and get your trivia team together for the 5th Annual Trivia Night/Auction!
In June, we donated $16,000 to the school for technology upgrades. Your past generous support helped to make this possible as the PTA donation was used to offset the cost of the following technology purchases: teacher desktop computers, a new server, 8 wireless access points, and iPads for the kindergarten through 3rd grade classes. Additional technology is the goal for this year as the school is looking to purchase a mobile lab for the 4th through 8th grade students and new computer stations for the computer lab. Our goal is to raise as much money as we can to help with these projects.
You can help us with this in a couple of different ways:
1) Donate a basket or service to be auctioned the night of the event;
2) Attend the event and bring your family and friends; and/or
3) Purchase auction items
If you would like to make a donation or know someone who would (ex: employer/vendor, family friend or grandparent), please contact one of the following PTA Officers:
