Do you wanna build a playground?
The 2019-2020 school year marks the 25th anniversary for GES.... and for our playground at the corner of Hughes Rd and Hall Johnson! Unfortunately, it is not aging well! There are many areas that need repair, but the equipment is no longer in production. The whole system has to go, and a new one needs to be installed in its place!
We are so excited to bring something incredibly impactful to our Stars that is not only shiny, fun and new but will last 15-20 more years, be safer, and offer new ways to incorporate play & imagination each and every day at GES.
We cannot wait for you to see what we have planned! But first... we need the funding to make it happen!!! Help us reach our goals by donating to the playground fund!
The GES PTA President, Megan Holladay, President-Elect, Junell DuBois, and our Principal, Nancy Hale, spent the first-semester interviewing many playground companies, studying designs and proposals, and reviewing pricing. We are excited to share that we have decided to partner with Lea Park & Play for this project! We cannot wait to show you the renderings at our Reach for the Stars event! Keeping our district values in mind, we will be offering a student voice component, where the students will be able to vote on some pieces of the playground! How exciting!!!

THANK YOU so much to everyone who participated in or supported our first-ever, adults-only fundraising event. Reach for the Stars was a huge success! From the countless volunteer hours put in, to our amazing sponsors, and the 120+ attendees the event was able to raise a lot of money for our playground and parents were able to come together and have a great time. We will be bringing this event back in the future!
Stay tuned for final numbers from the auction, envelope wall, and the raffle ticket sales!

Welcome to the GES PTA!
We are so glad you are here! Our goal is for every child at Grapevine Elementary to be represented by at least one PTA member. Anyone can join PTA from parents & grandparents to aunts & uncles, and even students themselves. As the PTA (Parent-Teacher Association) we provide invaluable support to the students and staff at GES. We provide programs such as our Diversity Night, WOW Garden, Red Ribbon Week, Teacher Appreciation, & the GES Star Bank. Our fundraising efforts help support various capital improvements (playground covers, furniture, equipment), teacher training, scholarships for graduates, and so much more.
