SUMMER UPDATES

7/16/2020 8:16 am

We sincerely hope all of our Gator families are enjoying their summer together.  Although we don't have all the answers yet, we want you to know that no matter if your kids are at home or at school, you have a place to belong.  Please stay tuned for changing information and review these summer updates:

  • PISD Learning Environments - All students will be starting the school year in the remote setting from August 12 to September 8. On September 9 students will transition into their selected learning environment: Face to Face or PISD School@Home. The initial selection period for choosing PISD School@ Home ended on July 16. Families now have another opportunity to opt in to the PISD School@Home learning environment if a selection was not made by the original deadline. The extended window for selection is July 24-August 6. Students will be scheduled in the selected instructional environment, which will go into effect on September 9. The instructional environment that families previously selected or newly selected will be valid through the end of the first 9-week period. 
  • PISD Return to School Planning Guide - https://www.pisd.edu/2021planning Check the guide often for updates.
  • Start of 2020-2021 PTA Year -- Come back to our website beginning August 1st to update your family information to continue receiving PTA news and purchase your PTA memberships for the 2020-2021 school year. Two free PTA memberships were included with your School Supply Bundle, but we would love for every member of your family to be part of our PTA.
  • School Supplies - We are working on a plan to distribute your pre-purchased School Supply Bundles to our families.  We will send out communications as soon as those plans are finalized.
  • School Supply Lists - For those who did NOT purchase a School Supply Bundle, please find the Teacher Approved School Supply List for your grade level below.  Your student will need these items before the first day of school.

THANK YOU VOLUNTEERS!

5/7/2020 11:30 pm

While the school year didn't end like any of us expected, we didn't want to let the opportunity pass to sincerely thank our hard working volunteers. Whether you were able to donate just one hour, or many hours, your time and effort made a difference for both our students and teachers and we are so grateful for you. The volunteers of Gulledge PTA and Texas PTA are truly the heart of the association. Your efforts as leaders of the largest child advocacy group deserve to be recognized. Thank you for taking an active role in ensuring that every child's potential becomes a reality.  We appreciate each of you.  
 
As we begin to look forward to next year, we have found many open positions within our PTA Board.  Many of our current board members are aging out and moving on to middle school.  Even if you are unable to fully commit to chairing a committee or event, we would love to have you be part of our committees and pass our knowledge down to our successors.  Please take a moment to review our list of open positions.  The descriptions for those positions can be found linked below.

Book Fair 2020

3/6/2020 8:49 pm

Thank you to all of our Gulledge Families for your support of our Scholastic Book Fair!!

 

Because of your generosity, we raised over $2,300 in the Coin Challenge and we were able to pick books directly from our fair to replenish not only the Gulledge Library, but also replenish all Grade-Level, Special Eduction, ESL, PACE, Speech, Art, Music, and even the School Nurse’s libraries as well. Gulledge Teachers and staff sincerely appreciate these books!

 

 

Also because of your generosity, we rounded up purchases at the fair to donate almost $300 worth of books to Thomas Elementary School Library. We love that our Gator Families have big hearts and want to share with our community!

 

Our students purchased over 2,300 books this week and we couldn’t be more excited to see all those happy, smiling faces picking out their books.

 

Many thanks to our Bookfair Chair Katherine Campbell and all of our wonderful Book Fair volunteers who worked tirelessly to make this a fun experience for Gulledge students.

 

Gulledge PTA loves our Gulledge Families! Happy Spring Break!!
