Fundraising

The GES Council (GESC) is a very important part of every child’s educational experience here at Greely Elementary School, as it contributes to the school in a number of relevant ways. We help coordinate the lunch program, the Annual Holiday Fling, provide refreshments on play days, and provide an end of year BBQ, to name a few items.  One of our major roles has been to run fundraising events to support the students' educational experiences at our school.  

Did you know that there are expenses at school that are not covered by our taxes or the school's budget?  For example, buses for field trips, technology (iPads, robots, Chromebooks), classroom resources, guest performances and speakers, and play structures, all come at an additional cost.  This is in large part why GESC runs fundraisers, to help support the interests of our families and students at school.  At Council Meetings, Council decides which fundraisers we will be implementing and how these monies will be utilized. If you would like to share your ideas, please consider attending any of our monthly meetings.

All of the monies raised by GESC are spent in support of our children's learning experience, and enriching our school community.  GESC's accomplishments, in coordination with efforts from our whole school community, can be seen below under the "Goals & Purchases" tab.  As always, thank you for supporting GES, whether it is through participating in fundraisers, volunteering, or showing your support in many different ways!
