Our fundraising programs and events would not be successful without the help of our volunteers – opportunities to donate your time are always available and we welcome everyone who is interested in helping.
The fundraising programs slated for the 2017-2018 school year are:
- Annual Fundraising Event – We are in the process of planning another exciting event for this year. If you would like to get involved, please contact Amanda Williams at Amanda.Valente@me.com.
- Athletic Wear – Be true to your school and proudly wear the Grandview and Gould name and logo on T-shirts, sweatshirts, and other clothing and novelty items. For questions about athletic wear or to purchase an item, please contact Nicole Ciano at firstname.lastname@example.org.

- Kid Stuff Books – Save money at your favorite retail stores, and family-friendly restaurants, and leisure activities while supporting our schools. Kid Stuff sales occur in September. The coupon books have over 300 pages of coupons and offers for families and 50% of the cost of the books goes right back to our schools.
- Holiday Shop – What is better than seeing the pride on your children’s faces as they give you a present they’ve shopped for all by themselves? The Holiday Shop allows our kids to “shop” a large selection of holiday gift items to bring home to family prior to the holidays.Thank you to the volunteers!
- School Supplies – Instead of running around town, order your child’s school supplies online during the summer. Your child will have everything their teacher requires and it will be waiting for them in their classroom on the first day of school. School supply sales occur in June and information will be provided via e-mail to all parents.
