WELCOME BACK! Though things may look quite different, we are excited to begin another school year with you. We have had to curtail events that don’t meet safety requirements, but your PTO is ready to to continue providing enrichments as well as necessities to help the schools during this unprecedented time. We look forward to making the best of this school year with you!
HANNAFORD FREE-TO-YOU FUNDRAISER:The first Hannaford load is this Tuesday, 9/22, by 12pm. A Hannaford form was sent in the PTO Welcome Back Packet this week, but if it was lost among the mass of papers, you can print one here: HGC Form.

Click here to see the enrichments we provided last year thanks to our parents. We have already been busy with funding requests from our schools! To see what we’ve already agreed to fund for this year click here.
While the pandemic has affected us all, some of our families have been more severely impacted. For those families, please know that we do not want to add to the strain by asking for your funding or time. We happily and warmly support all our school families, particularly those facing hardship whose circumstances require them to sit this one out.
