A Greater Gator is someone who helps PTA volunteers by completing four important transactions by September 18.
To make it easy, we have combined the first three items into one page. MBEF annual donations must be made directly to MBEF by September 18 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 $350 per child. It is critical that every family contributes at a level meaningful to them. The PTA will fund more than $250,000 in 2014-15 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 a Student Directory!
($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.
($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.
($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.
If one of the donation levels above does not suit you, or if you would like to give more, please donate any amount:
Our 2013-2014 yearbook cover was a mosaic of all Grand View students’ school photos forming a view of the Manhattan Beach pier.
2. Purchase Yearbooks
Get your child’s 112 page full-color yearbook, bound in a beautiful, custom designed hardcover now at an extra low price — only $25 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 is Friday, September 19, 5:30P. Bring your beach chairs and sweatshirts to the lower playground and join the fun of this ‘welcome back to school’ tradition! We’ll be showing The Lego Movie on a big screen. Your ticket price of $20/person includes full dinner provided by Pachanga Restaurant and a bottle water. Ice cream, popcorn, Gator Gear and other fun items will also be available.
4. Make Your Annual Donation to MBEF
Small class sizes. Librarians. 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 18 to complete your Greater Gator membership.
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.
