The GPTA is the Grymes Parent Teacher Association, and every parent or guardian of a Grymes student is automatically a member. The GPTA’s main role is to assist Grymes with events and fundraisers through a committee of volunteer parents. In recent years, GPTA fundraising has provided 10 pairs of binoculars for the science lab, classroom cameras for kindergarten and First Grade, a new set of encyclopedias for the library, 15 scientific calculators, and even a trip to the Chesapeake Bay for the seventh grade class.
Being a part of the GPTA is a fun way to give back to Grymes and be actively involved in your child’s school. Whether it’s becoming a classroom parent, participating in the Fall Family Picnic, or sharing your voice in GPTA meetings, we encourage you to get involved.
