The Granville School District Parent Teacher Organization is a non-profit PTO whose mission is to establish and sustain a working relationship between the parents, teachers, and students by creating opportunities within the home, school, and community. The PTO Provides assistance to teachers within the classroom settings, raises funds for educational materials and experiences, advocates school and family social interactions. The PTO will provide an unbiased area for sharing information on issues that impact our children. 

The GCSD PTO has one large fundraiser per year. This is the fundraiser we do in the fall. The last few years we have been selling Gertrude Hawk candy! Without the community members, parents, and students buying candy we would not be able to fund the events and requests that we do. Thank you!

Backpacks for Hunger

Our Backpacks for Hunger Program is going strong. We are currently feeding close to 40 children on the weekends. 

What is Backpacks for Hunger?

Around 60% of our students enrolled in Granville Central School District are living below poverty levels. In some of these homes, there are times where there isn't enough money to buy the food they need. This leaves children at risk for hunger. As a result, these children are coming to school too distracted by their empty stomachs to focus on doing well in school. While school programs offer free or reduced lunches during school, these children often don’t have access to food over weekends or school breaks.

 We are always taking donations - monetary and food. It costs about $160 per child for the entire year.
