PTA Updates

Tiger Talk Update 10.04.19

October 4, 2019

Thank you to everyone that walked, biked and scootered to school on Wednesday. Special thanks to the volunteers that made it all possible, Sidewalk Stompers for partnering with us on this important initiative, and our Hillsborough County School Board member, Lynn Gray, for attending our Walk to School Wednesday and supporting our students. 
Our first Walk to School Wednesday was amazing with 178 students participating!! We had participants from every class and far exceeded our goal of 10 walkers/grade. As a result, all of our classes have earned a playground ball. The balls were delivered to the teachers this morning. 
Congratulations to our winning class, Mrs. Price's 2nd grade class! They had 12 walkers out of their class of 20 students! Mrs. Price will get to select some recess goodies for her class to use.

PTA Membership
Thank you to all of the families that have already signed up to join the Grady PTA. We have 360 members signed up, but still need 90 more to reach our goal of 450 members. You can still sign up/renew your PTA membership online by clicking PTA Membership. Membership must be renewed annually. Membership is only $6 for 1 person or $10 for 2 people. Anyone can join the PTA: Parents, Grandparents, Children (6th - 12th grade), Teachers, Faculty, Staff and Community Members. High membership participation provides PTA with strength in numbers when advocating for our students and also allows us to participate in PTA programs such as Reflections Art.
