Sweet Holiday Treats Needed for Teacher/Staff Appreciation Day on December 12th
GOE is holding its First Annual Cookie Walk, a new holiday tradition which gives us the opportunity to thank our amazing 68 person staff by offering a tasty pick me up during their day.
We need your help to make this event a success:
· Each child please bring a dozen or more cookies. Homemade or store bought cookies or even holiday specialties like fudge and candy are welcome.
· Deliver your baked goods to the Parent Room (flex B148) Starting Tuesday, December 10th and no later than 8:30am Thursday, December 12th
· Volunteer to help set up or refresh our cookie display. Any amount of time is greatly appreciated. Sign up here.
“Teachers and staff will begin the Cookie Walk at 10:00am Thursday, December 12th, and continue until 1:30pm. They will walk around tables laden with your baked goods and select from the variety of yummy treats,” says DeAnn Burdsall, PTA Staff Appreciation Chair. “We want LOTS of cookies. If each child would bake and bring a dozen or more cookies each teacher/staff at Grand Oak could take home 2 dozen cookies each!”
If you have any questions about the event or what we need help with please contact DeAnn Burdsall.

GOE PTA is excited to present our limited edition, WINTER SPIRIT WEAR! View our catalog of new items online and learn more about placing your order below.
How to Order:
1. Download and complete a paper order form. Return it by December 2nd with cash or check, made out to GOE PTA. There is a $25 fee for all returned checks.
2. Purchase online. Please note that there will be a small service charge on on-line orders.
Don’t miss out on these limited edition items! They make great holiday gifts and will keep you and your kid(s) warm as you sport Owl spirit in school and around town this winter.
New Spirit wear order forms will be coming home next Friday in the students folders. There are many great items to choose from, including long sleeve shirts, sweatshirts, hoodies and hats. These cool designs will make GREAT Christmas and holiday gifts! I know my 2 boys will love the dri-fit athletic shirt!! Kids and adult sizes are available. The orders are pre-order only, meaning we will have a cut off date of December 2nd for orders, so that the printing company has time to get the shirts delivered to me by Dec 17. We will then distribute the shirts at school. I know many of the orders will be surprise gifts, so I will have some times that are pick-up times for parents to get the gear without it going home in the kids backpacks. More info on that closer to the date.
Ordering is available through the forms that will come next week (cash or check only) and through our online store (credit card and pay-pal). All orders done on-line will have a $1.00 service charge per item. If you have any questions please contact me at email@example.com.
