What Does Granger PTA Do?
Host events connecting our students, parents, staff and community.
We host the following events for our Granger Wrangler families:
- Fall or Winter Family Festival
- Daddy/Daughter Dance
- Mother/Son Ninja Night
- Donuts for Dads
- Muffins for Moms
- Grandparents Day
- Reflections Student Art Contest
- Watch DOGS Pizza Night
We also show appreciation for our teachers by buying lunches throughout the year and providing snacks during faculty meetings.
We provide cookies and cocoa for our kids for the Cocoa Express party before the holidays.
We bring in speakers for parents and visiting authors for students. In 2015 and 2017 Marilyn Morris gave her talk “The ABCs of the Birds and the Bees.”
Purchase wish list items for our school.
This includes curriculum items requested by teachers that aren’t covered in the school’s budget, such as Story Works, Guided Reading books, Empowering Writer Teacher Textbooks, other books for teachers’ libraries.
We also provide items for our school such as overhead microphones for the stage, microwaves and other items for the teacher’s lounge, iPads & other technology items for the students, Buddy Benches for the playground, a book scanner, Music Equipment Repair Kits, Art Display Boards, Xylophone Risers, plus pictures and signs to help create a positive atmosphere at the school.
Build unity and spirit by purchasing items that would otherwise be purchased by Granger families.
The Granger PTA shares the cost with the school to purchase school t-shirts for every student.
We also purchase Tidwell MS t-shirts or lanyards for 5th graders, chess sets for the Chess Club, and car rider signs for students.
Recognize and reward students.
PTA’s Giddy Up award recognizes one student in each class every six weeks.
We also award a $1,000 college scholarship to a former Granger student each year.
The Granger PTA hosts the PTA Reflections contest annually, which allows students to compete on the school, district and state level.
Produce A Full Color Yearbook with over 120 pages
PTA volunteers put together the school’s yearbook — it takes a team of photographers at every big event throughout the year, plus a team behind the scenes building the 128 page book!
Our yearbook cover features the KGE 5th grade artist who enters and wins our cover contest!
Volunteer, volunteer, volunteer.
We organize volunteers for all events where the school or teachers request help and recognize volunteers who go above and beyond at the school.
Organize fundraising events, which allow us to do everything that we do for the school.

- Winter Fest - our biggest fundraiser brings families together for a day of carnival-style fun with Concessions, Silent Auction & Raffle
