Important Information

Back to School Information

The first official day of school for faculty and staff will be Thursday, August 14.  This is a Teacher Institute Day.  The faculty and staff will be participating in a variety of meetings and activities in preparation for the first day of student attendance.  A Welcome Back to School Night will be held that evening with faculty/staff introductions and a few announcements beginning at 6:00 in the gym followed by classroom visits to meet the teachers.

Friday, August 15, will be the first day of attendance for our K-8 students.  Please note that the dismissal time for the first day of school will once again be 1:40, so the students will be eating lunch at school.  On this day, time is set aside to get the students settled in their classroom, familiar with their schedule, acclimated to the classroom routine, and reconnected with their peers.


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:

Laura Malone   523-4232        Crystalyn Huegen 523-7238

Sheena Bowen    920-0648    Stephanie Cook    523-4153
