PGS Parents,

Please consider becoming a room lead for your child's class! 

Room Lead responsibilities vary from teacher to teacher. In general, your role is to be a helper to your classroom teacher. This usually involves help with class parties and activities as well as managing your class on Konstella. Room Leads are also in charge of organizing holiday and year-end gifts for the teachers and classroom paras.

Room leads are still needed for the classrooms of: Ms. Colbert, Mrs. Fisher, Mrs. Press, Miss Driscoll, Mr. Grgach, Mr. Higgins, Ms. Musto, Ms. Smaglis, and Mrs. Mone.

Whether you have never been a room lead before or have an experience from prior years, the PGS PTO is here to help! Our talented Committee Lead Kelsey Nemarich will provide support, training, and answer any questions you might have!

 Click Here to sign up on Konstella!

The sign up closes on Friday, September 9th.

We are excited to bring you PGS swag this fall beginning with this great multi-purpose bag! You might be thinking, what can I use this bag for, but we have that covered: winter gear, library book bag, grocery bag, sports equipment for recess and so much more. Be on the look out for these bags to be on sale at the upcoming movie night later this month, along with our new spirit wear (sweatshirts, T shirts and more!).
