PTA Membership 2015-2016

GreaterGator5A Greater Gator is someone who helps PTA volunteers by completing four important transactions by WEDNESDAY, September 16, 2015. 

To make it easy, we have combined the first three items into one page. MBEF annual donations must be made directly to MBEF to qualify for Greater Gator status.

1. Join the PTA and Donate

The Grand View PTA operates on a tight budget and spends well over $450 per child. It is critical that every family contributes at a level meaningful to them. The PTA will fund more than $350,000 in 2015-16 for technology enhancements, curriculum enrichment, assemblies, student organizations, field trips and much more! And remember, everyone who joins the PTA gets a Grand View Gator car magnet and access to our online Student Directory.

Gold Supporter

($350 per child)

This is Grand View’s circle of strongest supporters.  These supporters allow us to fund enrichment programs and go above and beyond so our children can have a quality education.

Silver Supporter

($250 per child)

Grand View’s silver circle of supporters are the foundation of the PTA membership drive. A family who gives at the silver amount gives the PTA the ability to fund most of the PTA programs and materials enjoyed by the number of students sponsored.

Bronze Supporter

($150 per child)

Donating at the Bronze level is a generous way to support a substantial portion of the PTA programs and services at Grand View.

Additional Donation:

If one of the donation levels above does not suit you, or if you would like to give more, please donate any amount. PLEASE ALSO REMEMBER TO JOIN PTA ABOVE.

Our 2014-2015 yearbook cover was a word search including names of Grand View students.

2. Purchase Yearbooks
Get your child’s 100+ page, full-color yearbook, bound in a beautiful, custom designed hardcover now at an extra low price — only $30 per yearbook. Greater Gators purchase a yearbook for each of their children, because Grand View students can’t wait to get their yearbooks and collect signatures in their classrooms at the end of the school year.

3. Purchase Family Movie Night Tickets

Family Movie Night (Friday, September 18). Bring your beach chairs and sweatshirts to the lower playground and join the fun of this ‘welcome back to school’ tradition!  We’ll kick it off with a DJ, then show Big Hero 6 on a huge outdoor screen.  Your ticket price of $20/person includes full dinner provided by Mama D’s or Rubio’s and a bottled water.  Ice cream, popcorn, Gator Gear and other fun items will also be available.

Purchase Tickets and Provide Meal Choices

Please enter the quantity for each meal choice, then the total number of attendees.

Dinner includes Mama D’s Plate with pasta, salad and garlic knots (choice of: pink sauce, meat sauce, or fusilli with butter), or Rubio’s steak or chicken taco plate (gluten free option), 2 tacos, rice, beans, chips & salsa bar.

4. Make Your Annual Donation to MBEF

Small class sizes. Librarians. P.E. teachers. Advisors. Music teachers. Science Teachers. You won’t find them in this year’s state budget. You will find them in Manhattan Beach schools. Thanks to your generous donations last year, MBEF raised enough money to maintain our high-quality programs and the quality teachers that allow our district to be ranked THIRD in the State. And the drive continues. Better schools. Better communities. Is there a better reason? This donation must be made directly to MBEF, so visit the MBEF website to make your donation by September 17 to complete  your Greater Gator membership.


Corporate Matching

Corporate Matching Gifts are an easy way to contribute to your child’s education. Here is a list of local companies that have previously participated. If your employer has a Corporate Matching Gift Program, Grand View’s Tax ID number is #95-6204597. You may have your company representative send an e-mail to Jill Lamkin or Katie Koerber if they need any other information.
