GHES Annual Coat Drive – GHES is having it’s Annual Coat Drive from now until January 29, 2018.  Please consider donating any new or gently used children and/or adult winter coats. Also, please wash the coats before donating.  There is a bin in the school lobby to collect donations.  All donated coats will be used by Glen Haven families.  Thank you in advance for your donations!

PTA Nominating Committee – The Glen Haven PTA needs to constitute the Nominating Committee in preparation for the election of the 2018-2019 Board which takes place in May. It is the responsibility of the nominating committee to recognize and seek qualified nominees for the elected leadership of the PTA.

The committee’s recommendation becomes the slate of candidates that is presented to the PTA membership. It is a critical role for our organization and sets the stage for the successful transition of PTA duties from one school year to the next and the continued growth of our wonderful PTA.

Please contact the PTA president, Amanda Schoch, at, with your interest to serve on the nominating committee or with any questions you have. (Please note: being a member of the committee does not preclude you from being considered and put forth as a nominee for one of the elected positions.)

Help out the PTA – Box tops, Amazon Smile, Mable’s Labels, CertifiKid, eScrips, and Giant.  Please see the link below to see more information on how YOU and these organizations can help the GHES PTA. of PTAFundraisingFlyer.pdf?dl=0
