Monthly eNewsletter School Report



Dear Stratford School Families,

I cannot believe how quickly the first month of school has flown by, the halls of Stratford are still buzzing with back to school excitement and the children are embracing the “Up” themed kindness initiative to “Lift each other up”, the encouraging phrases in the main hallway brigthen my day whenever I enter the building.

Your membership and support of PTA Matters!

Last year, the GC PTA contributed over $100,000 to our schools and community through our programs and approved grants. We have another great year planned for you and your child! To get started, we need the support of your membership. We ask all parents and care givers to enroll as GC PTA members today. Membership provides you the access to information, builds community, and strengthens the role of parents within our schools and community. Your annual membership covers all the schools your children attend.
