Message from the PTA!
Whether you are new to VanGorden or a returning family, the PTA is excited to
welcome you to the 2023-2024 school year! VanGorden is truly an amazing place filled with so many dedicated people who are committed to making VanGorden the exceptional place it is. We have had a successful and committed PTA for many years, and during that tenure, we have been fortunate enough to use fundraised monies to equip the school with resources and support.
We could not do all of this without your support. There are many ways you can make an impact at VanGorden with just a few hours of your time.
How to make an Impact at VanGorden
We typically achieve these goals by hosting our two fundraisers each year: a Soar-a-thon (Walk-a-thon) in the fall and a Carnival in the Winter. These events help us raise the money needed to support our yearly programs and projects to provide a meaningful impact for our school. Your support makes a huge difference!
Whether you've been involved in PTAs for years or this is your first time, we invite you to join us! Whatever your commitment level might be, we’d love to have you on our team. Volunteering for or organizing an event, joining our Executive Board, sharing ideas, or simply showing support by sharing in our excitement with your students are all equally important ways we can work together to achieve so much at VanGorden.
