YEARBOOK -

The Great Hollow Middle School PTA supports over 1,000 students and their families by providing yearlong programs and events for every child in every grade level. Please consider volunteering to support our children. The upcoming 2020-2021 will need your help to sustain a successful school year. Your involvement will continue to help our programs thrive.

Please review the following list of the GHMS PTA standing committees. Not only do we need chair people to embrace these committees, we also need volunteers to make a short term commitment. By providing your name, phone, and email, you may be called upon by a chairperson when the need arises. Of course, you may choose to volunteer your time at your convenience.

If you have any questions, please contact Nancy Poulis at nancypoulis@optonline.net.
