A Note from the PTSA Board


 Dear GMS families,

As we get settled back into the school year, we would like to take a moment to tell you about our PTSA.  The Grandview Middle PTSA is a nonprofit organization made up of committed parents, teachers, and students who all want the best for our children and our school.  Our PTSA Board meets on the first Thursday of every month from 6-7pm in the conference room by the main entrance.  Please join us for our next meeting on Thursday, October 5th.  This is a great way to see what the PTSA is all about and discuss any questions you may have.  You will also be able to get the inside scoop about what is going on at the school from our principals.  We look forward to seeing you.

Introducing……PTSA’s Attendance Counts Initiative

This year, the PTSA will be rewarding students with excellent attendance.  Good attendance is essential to student success.  Every student who achieves 90% or better attendance for the first quarter will receive a certificate good for free tokens at Cool Crest Family Fun Center.  We will also be providing treats for Mrs. Spencer’s popular “All Here Days” that celebrate classrooms who achieve perfect attendance.  Students who meet our attendance goal will also be eligible for prize drawings throughout the year. 


Volunteer Corner

We are currently looking for volunteers to help us provide a dessert or soup for the dinner we are hosting for the teachers on Thursday, October 19th during Parent-Teacher conferences.  Please contact us if you would like to help. 


We would like to thank:

  • Krispy Kreme (Merriam location) for donating fresh donuts to the teacher welcome breakfast. 
  • Our fabulous secretaries, Ms. Dyer and Ms. Oliver, for helping us get our fundraising packets and flyers organized.
  • Cool Crest Family Fun Center for their generous donation of token certificates for our Attendance Counts program.

Hand Sanitizer Drive


Did you know that the average school desk contains 20,000 germs? 


With flu season right around the corner, we would like to encourage you to send your child to school with a bottle of hand sanitizer or a container of antibacterial cleaning wipes for their teacher.  Unlike the elementary schools, GMS does not require that students bring these items.  Help do your part to prevent our children from getting sick. 

(Many thanks to Ms. Benneson for this wonderful idea!)
