Amazon Smile makes donations to GVMS easy! There are two ways:
You can donate by buying items for the school via the Amazon Smile Charity Lists. The PTO has set up some staff wish lists for requested items to help with cold and flu season, help stock the staff lounge, and to help with random school supplies when needed by the kids AND when you order from the wish list, the goods will be shipped directly to the school. Please have a look at the charity lists .
When you shop on AmazonSmile, the AmazonSmile Foundation will donate 0.5% of the purchase price of eligible products to the charitable organization of your choice (Great Valley Middle School Parent Teacher Organization). There is NO cost to you. When the majority of the GVMS families participate, a significant amount can be achieved!
These are the steps that need to be done:
You sign into Amazon Smile
Select your favourite charity (Great Valley Middle School) through smile.amazon.com instead of just amazon
Just Write A CHECK
Each year the PTO runs a “Just Write A Check” program so you can give donations directly to the GVMS PTO without having to ‘purchase’ or ‘volunteer’ for anything.
Your contribution is confidential and tax deductible.
This program funds educational programs such as interactive assemblies, Camp Henlopen and Washington D.C.. In addition, donations collected help fund classroom enhancements, such as microscopes for the 7th grade science labs, a video camera for the TV studio, an Elmo projector for FACS, planters and soil for autistic support and emotional assistance items.
DIRECTORY FOR 2018/2019
The My-School-Directory is a great way to get in touch with other students and their family as it lists their phone number, e-mail address and home address (if provided). No more asking around when you want to organize a birthday party! You can access the directory anytime as you can install it on your phone.
Our goal is that every family will be included in this directory. It is FREE to add your information, however if you would like access to the online directory the membership fee is $10 for the school year. This membership can be purchased through the website after you update/add your family information. You will then be able to access the directory via the website or their app, and there is even an option to print.
New families: please use this link->> with this invitation code: GreatValleyMS
Returning families: An email will be sent to all returning families on August 31.
If you do not receive the mail or have a question, please email Dorothy Bickell [firstname.lastname@example.org] .
