A Message from The GVHS Parent Teacher Organization
Dear High School Families,
Welcome to a new school year at Great Valley High School. The PTO works on behalf of all the GVHS students; and as parents/guardians, we encourage your involvement in any of 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 PTO. Please join us and find a way to contribute your time and talents to enhance the educational experience of our high school students.
The PTO works directly with the students and administration to plan and carry out fun-filled events throughout the year. We have only one significant fundraiser each year and that is the sale of our directory. For the senior class, the directory is an invaluable purchase when anticipating your upcoming graduation and inviting fellow-classmates and their families. In the back of this publication, please take notice of the numerous businesses advertised. These are businesses that are supporting your children at GVHS by purchasing Ad space. Please support them in the services they provide.
All funds raised by the PTO, benefit events such as the Freshman dinner, Sophomore practice ACT/SAT tests, Sophomore Day (10/10), Junior Class After Prom Party (JRAPP), Senior class Baccalaureate, June BBQ, and scholarships for one male and female senior. Additionally the PTO provides funds for families in need through our community outreach program.
Our PTO strives to do the following:
- Keep GVHS families informed about district and school programs, plans, and current activities.
- Provide avenues for questions and clarifications of items of specific
interest and/or concern to GVHS parents.
- Promote school spirit.
- Maintain a positive, constructive attitude and ensure activities mirror the
needs and advance the goals of the entire GVHS community.
Our children benefit from the mutual effort coordinated by the PTO, and together we can make this an exceptional year.
Your GVHS PTO Executive Board
