Adopt-a-Classroom

The Garvy Adopt-A-Classroom Committee (AAC) works to enrich the academic experience by providing support for teachers through fundraising and soliciting donations specifically for our children's classrooms, like technology, paper, markers, and classroom equipment.
 
We Need YOUR Help!
  • Our major activity every year is the Walk-a-Thon. Students collect donations & walk laps around the track or school. The top fundraiser wins a gift card & raising at least $35 gets you a special T-shirt that counts as Garvy Garb.
  • Teachers often have a list of items they need to enhance teaching in their classrooms. This is a great way for YOU to directly impact your child’s classroom experience.
  • Making a Holiday Donation to your child’s teacher in lieu of a gift helps the entire class and is tax deductible! Classroom Donations are accepted all year. You can donate to any teacher in any grade!
  • Purchase Gift Cards to your favorite stores, restaurants, and venues and a percentage of your purchase will go back to Garvy!
  • Shop on Amazon? Link your account to the AmazonSmile "Jw Garvy Adopt-A-Classroom Nfp" group! The AmazonSmile Foundation will donate 0.5% of the purchase price of eligible products to Garvy School. 
  • Remember Market Day? It’s back! Shop online and orders will be shipped to you directly via FedEx in an eco-friendly cooler and packed to ensure that products stay frozen for up to 8 hours after delivery. Search for John Garvy Elementary School and start shopping!

Did You Already Join the PTA?
That's great! The PTA is a wonderful way to work on activities that benefit the whole school and student body. Adopt-a-Classroom works on specific classroom needs and adding more technology resources for each student.
