Gunpowder Elementary PTA Welcomes You.

Welcome!

You have arrived at the website home of Gunpowder Elementary PTA. We hope you will find the design and format of our website to be both user-friendly and informative. We invite you to check out each of the above tabs. Our "Committees" tab offers information about Gunpowder PTA committees and various volunteer opportunities. Our "Calendar" page tells you everything going on at the school this month and in the months ahead. The "More Info" tab has links to school forms, event flyers, an e-mail directory of PTA committee chairpersons, and more. It helps keep you in the know about things going on at Gunpowder Elementary School. "My Account" is specific to you. It's a place where you can register your family in our online directory. Be sure to register, so we can send you e-mails and keep you in the loop regarding PTA news and events. Finally, there is our "Fundraising Mall." Start your online shopping on this page and raise money for the PTA without doing anything. It's super easy!

We're using VolunteerSpot (the leading online signup and reminder tool) to organize our PTA activities this year. Please check it out!

Good Evening GES Family,

Announced through an email to our current GES families today, several Family Meet and Greets have been scheduled. Mrs. Cunningham is very excited to meet the students and families of Gunpowder. All current and incoming students of GES and their families are welcome to attend one of the scheduled meet & greets below:

I am very much looking forward to working with Mrs. Cunningham and Mrs. Kahan next year and wish them both a successful school year!

Secondly, I am extremely happy to report that we had 27 GES parents attend our first PTA planning meeting of the summer last Thursday! Much was accomplished during this meeting, including finalizing our calendar of events, selecting next year’s fundraisers and filling several open committee chairs. Our next planning session will be held on Wednesday, August 13th at 7pm. If you would like to attend, please send an email to me at president@gunpowderpta.org. An Evite with further details will be sent once we hear from you.

We are still in need of a few committee chairs, and of course committee members for some of our larger committees.
