PTA Updates

Grady PTA invites mothers to a Moms’ Night Out on Tuesday, October 4 from 5:30 pm until 8 pm, at Carmel Kitchen, 3601 W. Swann Ave.  Moms' Night Out is an opportunity for moms to get to know one another while our spouses, partners or grandparents take care of the kids!  To see pictures of the Moms’ Nights Out from last year click here:  MNO October 2015 and here: MNO February 2016.  To see the fantastic $4, $5, and $6 food and drink specials that will be available until 7 pm, click here:   Moms' Night Out Information.

We have a new Bengal-level Tiger Family Partner, The Griffin Family - Drew, Jennifer, Roman & Cort!  Thank you so much to the Griffin Family for their generous donation to our school.  Because of donors like you, the PTA is preparing to fund and bring the Reflections Art Program to Grady for a second year.  

Grady PTA is again planning to bring the Scripps National Spelling Bee to our school in December.  We are in need of a Spelling Bee Chair to help coordinate the event.  The position involves ensuring the school’s registration is completed (the PTA pays all of the registration fees, copying and distributing the spelling words list to the third, fourth and fifth grades (the lists may not be posted online), ordering trophies and certificates for the winners, organizing the event, and finding the moderator, timekeeper and judge (we hope the people who served in those capacities last year will again volunteer for those positions).  The Spelling Bee occurs in early December during the school day in the cafeteria and is watched by most of the students in the school.  If you are interested, or want to contribute in any way, please email President Kris House at [email protected], for more details.  

We are just 35 memberships away from being, once again, a 100% membership PTA.  If you know someone who has not yet joined, or you think your child’s grandparents or other relatives would benefit from membership, please send them this link:  PTA Membership Information, with information about membership; and this link:  Online Membership Sign Up,  to join and pay online.
