Gribbin Elementary School
Executive Board Positions
We look forward to a great year working together with all of you!
A message from the Gribbin PTA….
Fall is upon us and we have lots of fun events planned! We hope your children enjoyed all the fun activities at last week’s Fall Festival. A special thanks to Mr. C and the students from NYIT who made sure everyone had a great time outside and thanks to all the parent volunteers who helped our Spooky Bingo run so smoothly! We couldn’t have done it without all of your help!
On Wednesday, October 29th
we will be holding a Family Night Out Committee meeting at 7pm at Gribbin. If you are interested in soliciting raffles for baskets or helping out at the event, please join us at this meeting.
On Friday, October 31st
we are planning a Halloween Parade. Please note the time has been changed to 2:30 p.m. so as not to interfere with the other elementary school parades on this day. Children may bring their costumes to school in a bag and will change into them in the afternoon before the parade. Wearing masks and costumes on the buses and stairways in school throughout the day creates a safety hazard. Therefore, we are making the request to bring costumes in.
Calling all Bakers! Tuesday, November 4th
is Election Day and that means it is Bake Sale time. The proceeds will benefit the children of Gribbin, so please help make this a very successful fundraiser!! Look for the flyer and volunteer form in your child’s backpack this week.
Our next family event will be our 3rd Annual Past Night on Friday, November 7th
. Join us at 6:30PM at the Glen Cove High School for a fun night of dinner, dancing and socializing with good friends! The official event flyer will be coming home with your child soon. Please be sure to RSVP that you will be attending. Space is limited for this family event.
By now you should have received the Diamond Club Nominee Flyer. All nominations are due by Monday, November 3
. If there is someone you feel should be nominated for this award, please be sure to send your form in.
Our next PTA meeting will be held on Thursday, November 13th
at 7:00PM in the All Purpose Room. Free childcare and refreshments will be provided. We will be voting on the Gribbin Diamond Club nominee, so please join us.
