Yearbooks are In!

If you haven't already ordered your 2016-17 yearbook, there's still time.

New PTA Officers & Other News

New PTA Officers for 2016-17 have been elected:

  • President: Ang Paris

  • Treasurer: Kristin Ricker
  • Secretary: Karly Gaudette

Elections will be held again in May 2017 for Vice President and Treasurer positions, in accordance to our HGF PTA bylaws. (President and Secretary elections are held in even years).

The measure to give $2,500 to the school to help purchase the Envisions Math Program was passed at the May 25th meeting as well.  This will go toward supporting the materials required for 4th and 5th grades.

Coordinator positions for 2016-17 that are currently filled include:
  • Bake Sale: Tom Morrison
  • Yearbook: Leah Hall
  • Popcorn: Karly Gaudette 
  • Membership: Amanda Norton Laporte
  • Box Tops: Michelle Frigo

We are in need of a Fundraising Chairperson to help organize our fundraising efforts. This person will work with the executive board to plan events and activities, and recruit volunteers for individual fundraising opportunities. If you are interested, please email Ang Paris.

Thank you to all who support HGF through our PTA. We look forward to another awesome year!
