Grand Oak Elementary PTA Back to School Checklist

Welcome back to school! 

We realize that things look different this year, but the PTA is still here to support our teachers and staff. 

Here’s how you can stay informed and involved!

Sign up for the weekly PTA Newsletter at The newsletter is sent weekly, usually on Sundays, and includes important announcements about happenings at school.  Even if you have received the newsletter before, please take a minute to go and make sure you are subscribed.
Email to let us know if you want to get involved. PTA involvement looks different this year, but there is still a place for you!  We will be creatively raising funds to meet the ever-changing needs of our teachers, staff, and families over the next year and we could use your help!
Like Grand Oak Elementary School on Facebook, and join the “Families of Grand Oak” page. Along with the newsletter, important information comes out on the “official” Facebook page weekly.  The Families of Grand Oak page is a great place to connect with other parents.
Order spirit wear and support our amazing school! T-shirts, sweatshirts, and other items are available for sale! Shop here!
