Hello Goldenview families,

Happy Fall! As the President of GVMS Parent Teacher Student Organization (PTSO), I wanted to welcome you to the 2020-2021 school year.  Although this welcome is a quarter late and amidst a lot of uncertainty, PTSO is committed to supporting staff and students.

For parents and staff at GVMS, I realize PTSO is likely low on your list of priorities.  However, PTSO provides a sense of community and support at GVMS, which may be needed now more than ever as we all navigate distance learning and try to maintain our connection with Goldenview. As the primary organization supporting students and staff, we want to continue assisting in whatever way we’re able, even at a distance. PTSO intends to put out a yearbook and will continue offering grants to GVMS teachers and prepare for students’ eventual return to the school building. This year, many of our teachers have additional needs due to distance learning efforts. In past years, PTSO has assisted with teacher grants for materials, field trips, and classroom equipment. 

It is unlikely that PTSO will be able to make money from hosting concessions at school-sponsored activities this year, nor will we be running the school store, which was a primary source of income. Your support through membership dues and/or donations will go a long way to helping us continue to support our students and teachers during a difficult school year!  Thank you in advance!   

As you may know, all the money through dues and donations that the PTSO brings in stays at Goldenview and goes directly to the students, teachers, and our school. We would appreciate any donations that you can give to support our PTSO as we support Goldenview Middle School students and staff during this unique time. All monetary donations and dues are tax deductible (EIN 84-2236240). Joining PTSO doesn’t sign you up for volunteer opportunities, it simply helps us support our school! Volunteering for events is likely to be minimal this year but we still want to do what we can to welcome back students and show teachers and staff our appreciation throughout the year.
