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 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.
Benefits of purchasing a directory include:
- Seniors: planning for graduation and inviting fellow classmates and families
- All students: List of local businesses supporting school programs and community
Funds raised by PTO benefit various events:
- Freshman dinner
- Sophomore Day
- Junior Class After Prom Party (JRAPP)
- Senior class Welcome back Picnic, Baccalaureate, June BBQ, and Senior Scholarships (1 male/1 female)
- Teacher Appreciation, Staff, and Custodial Appreciation
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
