The PTA will award prizes to the top 3 sellers.
Virginia Diner also awards prizes based on the # of items sold.

T-Shirts and Sweatshirts Still Available!
We still have a few sizes, mostly adult sizes, left on our t-shirts and sweatshirts from last year. If you are interested in getting some, please contact us and we will get them right out to you! They are being offered at a deep discount.

We will post the available sizes as soon as possible. If you are interested in any before that, please contact us. Orders are also now being taken for this year's design!

For all fundraisers:
You can send any orders and checks to school in your child's folder addressed to GES/SC PTA and the teacher will get it into the PTA mailbox at the school for processing.

For anyone in the Goochland, Gum Spring, Sandy Hook, Maidens, and surrounding areas who are asking "what can I do to help the children and teachers in the local school system?" Here are some ideas! Also check out our "Operation Free Money" which includes things such as collecting box tops and campbell labels.

"PTA does not endorse, warrant or recommend any of these products. PTA will receive a small percentage of every sale. If you decide to purchase any products, we thank you."
