WHAT IS G.W.P.O.?
G.W.P.O. stands for Grant Watts Parent Organization and is staffed solely by parent volunteers.
The purpose of this organization is to encourage the involvement of families and community for the benefit of Grant Watts School. This involvement may include, but is not limited to, fundraising, curricular enrichment, and activities which enhance the culture and climate of the school. The members of GWPO believe parents are partners in the educational process.
We meet once a month in the Grant Watts Music Room at 7 p.m. for school updates and to coordinate various programs and activities at Grant Watts Elementary. Anyone who has a child attending Grant Watts is welcome and encouraged to attend. We love seeing new faces!
GWPO sponsors and/or coordinates many special events at the school including:
- Bingo Night
- Fall Harvest Festival
- Family Movie Night
- Turkey Trot
- Teacher Treat Day
- Annual Spring Auction
In addition to these fun events, GWPO’s successful fundraising efforts have enabled us to sponsor the following items:
- $250 Class Allowance for every classroom
- Technology Equipment
- School Assemblies
- Field Trips for all grade levels
- Author Visits
We have also been able to contribute to the purchase of books for the library, office supplies, playground equipment and much much more!
