MISSION in 2020-2021

To build the school and the community that we want for our families. For 2020-2021, we believe that bringing our community together and supporting mental health will be prevalent themes.

We accomplish this by:What it may look like in 2020-2021:
Hosting community building events
* Most likely through Zoom/teleconferencing to start – hopefully small group in-person gatherings later in the school year. 

* At this time, large GPTA gatherings (e.g. Back To School Social, Just Parties Kick-Off) are on hold. 

* Staff Appreciation events will be retooled pending PAUSD and County health guidelines.

* Will be centered around Parent Education topics, as well as around Advisory Team parent communities.
Recruiting parents to volunteer to support school curriculum, enrichment activities, and community building events
* At this time, In-person/On-campus parent volunteers are not permitted. 

* The PTA will be looking for parents to host Just Parties fundraisers – both virtual ones and later on when permitted, in-person parties! Creative ideas and willing hosts wanted. Please stay tuned.
Fundraising to supplement the school‘s budget to ensure teachers and staff have the materials and equipment they need to implement the curriculumIf there could be one certainty about the new school year – it will be that parents and the community will be asked to come together to financially supplement district and state funding.

However, we are mindful of some families’ changed economic situation and will shift budget from canceled PTA activities to school/supplies support to help meet our students’ needs. 

Where did the PTA spend 2019-2020 parent donations?
Where will the PTA spend 2020-2021 parent donations?
Providing information to our families about programs and events happening at school and in the community
* Will continue as usual through GPTA’s eNews and UpToUs posts.

* Informal posts by parents and community members are encouraged through the Facebook private group: Greene Middle School Parent Community.
