Welcome To Garrison Mill's PTA
It’s Book Fair Time!
November 11 & November 13-17
The Fall Book Fair is just around the corner! In order to bring you a better variety and quality of books, we are now working with Bedford Falls Book Fairs. We’ve been to several of their book fairs and have been pleased with the selection and have heard rave reviews from teachers and parents at the schools. We are excited about the change and hope that you will have more choices to meet the reading needs of your family!
Please note one change to the payment options - Bedford Falls does not accept American Express at this time. You still have the option to pay with cash, check, VISA or Mastercard (debit cards included).
The book fair preview flyer and detailed descriptions of the books are available on the media center website www.cobblearning.net/gmmc.
Our shopping hours are:
Pre-Sale Saturday on 11/11 from 9 am to 12 pm - The PTA will be on hand selling Chick-Fil-A biscuits!
Regular Sales 11/13 - 11/17.
Monday through Thursday 7:30 am to 3:30 pm
Friday 7:30 am to 11:30 am
Annual Veteran’s Day Display: We have a special display during the fall book fair to honor our GM family and friends that have served in the military. If you have a loved one who served, we would be honored to display any memorabilia you would like to share that would be appropriate for viewing by our students. We are accepting the memorabilia now through November 10th in the media center. Please make sure that the item(s) are marked with a GM student’s name. Items will be sent home with the student before Thanksgiving Break or if you would prefer to pick it up yourself, please let us know.
Thank you for supporting the book fair
and helping us purchase more books for our students!
2017 Annual Paw Giving Tree
Each year Garrison Mill families generously support the Star Giving Tree. This annual drive collects needed items for children of families from Milford Elementary School, Lassiter High School, AND Garrison Mill. Because of your generosity, we’re able to provide for families that are often homeless, transient, or in need.
During the week 10/30, your student will bring home a Star Giving Tree Form. You can select a donation price range that your family is comfortable with. During the week of 11/13, your student will be able to choose an item in that price range that they would like to buy for a child in need. Wrapped gifts will be due back to Garrison Mill on December 4th-6th.
How else can you help? If you know of companies, organizations or groups that would be willing to donate gift cards or sponsor a child or family, please contact Heather McKelvey at heather.m.mckelvey@gmail. com. Thank you for sharing with our neighbors in need!
