WHO WE ARE.
The Great Falls Elementary School PTA is dedicated to enhancing the educational experience of our students and building an inclusive school community. We are an organization made up of families, teachers, and school administrators working together to achieve these goals. We strive to provide financial support to close funding gaps for resources and tools that our children otherwise would not receive through tax dollars. These resources and tools support our children’s academic and social-emotional needs. We also work collaboratively to host events to foster school spirit and build relationships among students and families.
We are a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization (EIN #541149142) fueled by volunteers.
We are dedicated to enriching the educational experience for our students.
We are advocates for students and families.
We are investors in positive change, focused on our students and community.
We believe everyone has something of value to contribute.
We know working together we can accomplish our goals.
We are excited about what is possible when we come together as a community.
All Great Falls Elementary families are welcome and encouraged to join the PTA. We invite you to join us in building a community dedicated to providing our children with resources and programs to enhance their elementary school experience.
WHAT WE DO.
The Great Falls Elementary PTA provides funding for resources and programs that our children otherwise would not receive through tax dollars. The tools and programs promote academic enrichment in:
- Visual and Performing Arts
- Physical Education
- Social-emotional Mindfulness
Programs and events reinforce classroom learning, provide chances to explore new interests, promote school spirit, and offer opportunities to build relationships. Our community outreach campaigns work to promote awareness and help address the important needs of our neighbors – food insecurity, childhood literacy and basic human needs.
The combination of academic enrichment, social events, and community outreach efforts are designed to provide a more robust experience for our children. The benefits are immediate. The impact lasts a lifetime.
HOW WE DO IT.
Funding for the Great Falls Elementary PTA is provided through a combination of sources – membership dues, direct donations, employer-matching donations, fundraising campaigns, and corporate/community sponsorships. No matter the amount, all donations make a difference.
Programs are fueled by our dedicated volunteers – parents, teachers, and school administration. Our volunteers offer their time and talents to support the Great Falls Elementary community. Without volunteers, our organization would not exist, and enrichment and community outreach programs would not be available for our students and families.
The strength of our PTA and the impact we can make depends on the generous donations of time and financial contributions from our community. Join us in making a positive difference.
WHY OUR PTA MATTERS.
A gap exists between what is provided from tax funding for public school resources and what is needed. The work of the Great Falls Elementary PTA helps close budget gaps by providing financial support for needed educational resources. These critical resources support our teachers and enhance the educational experience of our students. Volunteers donating their time and talents help provide enrichment programs and events that benefit and strengthen our community.
Our PTA makes a difference in your child’s experience and helps shape our school community. Your support matters.
