One of the goals of the 2018/2019 PTA board is assist the school in accomplishing a Chromebook for every child. We were able to purchase for the school 6 Chromebooks thru the funds we have raised. We hope to continue this trend. Technology is not the only way that the PTA supplements funds for the school. We sponsor field trips, classroom supplies, and curriculum program support. In addition we also host community events to bring our leprechauns together outside of the normal school day.
We are always looking for volunteers to help us pull off the many events and programs that we support. Please reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org for our latest opportunities including: the St Patrick’s Day parade, Science Family Night, Teacher appreciation, and the end of year celebration.
Whether you have an hour, a day, or more we can use your help!
How can you help?

- Shutterfly – Use our Green Gables PTA link to order all of your photo needs including holiday gifts and cards. Simply use our link http://greengablespta.shutterflystorefront.com/ . 13% of the total sales will be placed in our account.
- Holiday shopping becomes a breeze by using our Amazon Smile account. When you make a purchase thru our Amazon Smile account .05% of your total purchase is placed into our Green Gables PTA fund by the Amazon Smile program. The program is free to participate. You simply need to click on our site -> Log in -> and place your order from https://smile.amazon.com/ch/84-6111907 . .03% might not seem like a lot but since we started this program we have raised a total of $301.91 for the school. That’s three field trips on the bus or one Chromebook purchased thru the District.
- Milk Tops for Moola– If you are a Longmont diary customer or your neighbor is bring in those milk tops to the front office. Once we reach 1K caps the company reimburses us .05 cents for each cap. http://longmontdairy.com/pdf/Caps-for-Mooola-FAQ.pdf
