Dear High School Families,

Welcome to a new school year at Great Valley High School and encourage your involvement in the Parents Organization.  The Parents Organization is responsible for many events that benefit our students.  We are a committed group of individuals that work on behalf of all GVHS Students.  We work directly with the students and the administration to plan and carryout fun-filled events throughout the year.

We have only one significant fundraiser each year and that is the sale of our directory, providing names, addresses, e-mails, and phone numbers of fellow classmates.  For the senior class, the directory is an invaluable purchase when anticipating your upcoming graduation and inviting fellow-classmates and their families.  Additionally, the PO benefits from your purchases at Target.  Funds raised benefit events such as the Freshman dinner, Sophomore practice ACT/SAT tests, Junior class after prom party, Senior class dinner, luncheon, and scholarships for one male and female senior.  Additionally the PO provides funds for families in the community in need through our community outreach program.

Our purpose as the Parents Organization is to promote open communication and involvement among parents/guardians, teachers, and administrators. Our High School Parents Executive Board is committed to these goals and will work with parents and staff to make GVHS the best possible place for our students to learn and grow. To this end, our goals are:

1.       To keep GVHS families informed about district and school programs, plans, and current activities.

2.       To communicate parental input to policy, curriculum, programs and activities to school administrators.

3.       To provide avenues for questions and clarifications of items of specific interest and/or concern to GVHS parents.

4.       To promote school spirit.

5.       To maintain a positive, constructive attitude and ensure activities mirror the needs and foster the goals of the entire GVHS community.

In order to facilitate these goals, the Parents Organization Executive Board organizes a number of committees that serve the staff and students of the high school.  All parents/guardians of high school students are eligible to participate in the Parents Organization.  Meetings are held to plan events and dialog with the school staff.  Valuable information is shared and questions are addressed.  Please join us and find a way to contribute your time and talents to enhance the educational experience of our high school students.  

Our children benefit from the mutual effort coordinated by the Parents Organization and together we can make this an exceptional year.  Feel free to call any of our Executive Board members with your questions, concerns, and offers to help during the year.

Sincerely,

 

Connie Dietrich and Janice Baugher
