Support the PTA - we need you!
Please, support the GFMS PTA! Dues are only $10 - it supports our children and many activities at GFMS like the Science Fair, The Brain Show and Honor Roll Breakfasts. Membership entitles you to vote on issues that impact our students such as our yearly budget, special financial requests and programs we fund. One-third of the membership fee goes to the NYS and National PTAs. The balance stays right here at GFMS!

Our annual clothing and toy drive will take place November 2nd through November 4th in the small cafeteria.
Volunteers, both young and old, are needed. Student volunteers can get community service hours. Please, have the student meet a PTA member in the small cafeteria right after school. Don't forget to have them bring their community service hour sheet so the PTA can sign off on the hours. http://www.signupgenius.com/go/20f084aadac23abfa7-gfms9
Thank you for making this such a great experience every year!

If you shop at DeCicco's in Brewster, you can help raise money for students at GFMS! Put your Original Receipt in the GFMS Box by the door and DeCicco's will donate 1% of all pre-tax sales to our school. This is an on-going program so please keep placing your receipts in the GFMS box!
You can help GFMS by purchasing participating products at TOPS. TOPS in Education is a program that makes it easy to get money for our school.
Here's how it works:
1. Register your TOPS BonusPlus® at http://www.topsmarkets.com/Education/sign_up/
2. Select your school(s) of choice (grades K-12) from the list of schools that have registered (you may select up to three schools).
3. Purchase participating TOPS brand, Full CircleTM, TopCare®, Tippy Toes, Valu Time® and Best Yet® products with your TOPS BonusPlus® throughout the 2016-2017 TOPS in Education program year.
4. TOPS contributes up to 5% of your purchase to the school(s) you have chosen. The more you shop, the higher percentage we donate!
Donate My Coke Rewards points to GFMS. Points earned, from codes found on participating brand packages, can be turned into things like athletic equipment, art supplies, books, classroom supplies and more. Become a My Coke Reward Member, then log in at www.mycokerewards.com/schools and enter any codes you might have. After codes have been entered, members can search for GFMS to make a point donation to the school. Even the smallest point contribution can lead to great things for students in our community!
