May is Teacher Appreciation Month!

Teacher Appreciation Month is under way at NGES and NSS! We are raising money for small gift cards for every teacher, with leftover funds going to an end-of-year celebration for teachers and staff.

While we have already treated our teachers and staff to ice cream trucks to kick off Teacher Appreciation Month, we wanted to do something extra special this year by raising some additional money to provide each teacher with a small gift card to a local restaurant. If we raise enough funds, we’d also like to add an end of year celebration for the teachers to thank them one more time for the huge difference they made for our children this year. If you are able to support us, we’re hoping each family can contribute at least $5 per child.

Thank you so much for your contributions!

Book Fair

Offered twice a year (Fall and Spring), volunteers are responsible for setting-up book fair, scheduling volunteers, assembling displays and assisting the children during preview and shopping days. Planning begins at the end of the previous year for reserving dates.

Hospitality & Community

Hospitality Committee
Committee responsible for coordinating and providing refreshments for approximately 6-8 school events per year. One committee for each school. Examples of these events are: Know Your School Night, in September, a Cookie Swap in December, Teacher’s Appreciation Month in May, etc.

School Beautification
This committee is responsible for helping weed, spread mulch and plant flowers usually in the Fall and Spring. (September & April/ May)

Back To School Night
Held at North Street, this community event (not a fundraiser!) is a fun way for families to reconnect after the summer. Food trucks will be on site, or families can bring their own picnic dinner.

Holiday Pancake Breakfast with Santa
This annual pancake breakfast event is held on a Saturday in December at NGES. Chairperson is responsible for coordinating volunteers, set-up for the event and purchasing necessary food items. Santa is reserved by the end of the school year previously. (November / December)

Ice Cream Social
Held during the spring book fair at NGES, ice cream is given to the students of NGES and sold to families for a small fee. Chairpersons needed to arrange for ice cream donation, supplies and volunteers for the night of the event. (March)


Each year we offer yearbooks for the students of NGES and NSS. The committee needs assistance from parents taking photos, coordinating the art work, and the design of the overall yearbook. Chairpersons lead the design process and create the design online. This is a year long project.


Bulletin Boards
Help create beautiful informative bulletin boards for the lobbies of either North Street or NGES schools. Sign up for one month or more! (Opportunities at both schools)

Publicity Committee
This committee is responsible for submitting all news worthy events, etc. to local newspapers and community websites. Also, helping with signage for special events. (Yearly commitment)


If you have a specific interest, hobby, or talent, the NGES PTG would love to know! Email us what you would like to share with our North Grafton community.

Please also visit our signup sheet to sign up to chair any of our upcoming events!

Thank you very much for volunteering!
