Volunteers Needed

Good morning – I hope that everyone is off to a great start at Garden Springs.  As you may have heard, the PTA is kicking off their only MAJOR fundraiser, and it is going to be a great time for students, teachers, and families alike. We would love to have you get involved with GSE during this great time.  
Wondering what the difference between Family Spirit Night and Sprout-a-thon is? Family Spirit Night is the chance for your family to play together in the evening as we kickoff fundraising for Sprout-a-thon. Sprout-A-Thon (formerly called Walkathon) is held during the school day on Tuesday, October 4th and provides your child with the opportunity to learn about healthy living and fun, active things to do while raising money for the school.
How can you get involved?
Sign up for Family Spirit Night at GSE on September 22nd from 5:30-7:30.  We will have inflatables, family dancing and games, a photo booth, cake walk, and more!  Papa John’s pizza is available, as is Orange Leaf yogurt.  We are giving away great prizes throughout the night!  THIS EVENT IS PREPAY ONLY.  Forms were sent home with your child last week to register, but we’ve attached one to this email in case yours was misplaced!  WE WOULD LOVE TO HAVE YOU AND YOUR FAMILY ATTEND – FORMS AND PAYMENT ARE DUE BY FRIDAY 9/16.  
We are in need of volunteers to help this event run smoothly, and we promise not to take too much of your time.  We want you to enjoy time with your family on Spirit Night.  Still, events such as these take manpower, and we need your help!  Please volunteer below for the Sprout Spirit Night, Sprout-a-Thon, or both!  No job is too small, and we greatly appreciate all you do to make GSE great!
