Principals Message 11/8 (pt.2)

Good afternoon Githens families.  This is Dr. Lanier with important information regarding the Give to Githens campaign, and the PTA Dine Out Night! 

Got plans for lunch and dinner on Wednesday, November 8?!  The Jersey Mike's (Patterson Place) location, at 3219 Watkins Road, will host a Spirit Day for Githens PTA this Wednesday, November 10. All day, from 10am-9pm, they will give back 50% of sales from any customers who mention Githens.  Customers need to mention the fundraiser either in-person, on the phone, or when they place their online order to earn the donation for Githens Middle School!

It's the final week of the Give to Githens campaign and the Githens PTA needs your help!!  They have raised $9200 - and are so close to their goal!   If you have not given, please consider supporting the campaign this week.  We have another generous Githens family that has agreed to match the first $400 to come in this week - this will allow us to reach the goal. You can pay online or send a check/cash to school with your scholar.  

Anyone that donates to the campaign is entered into a raffle.  Last week's winners will be contacted with your prize information.  This week's drawings will be for the following exciting prizes: 

Your donation is so important to support the Githens Community. Thanks to all that have donated already! 

Finally, please join me in congratulating Ms. Carrie Henderson Andrews on being named the North Carolina Eastern Regional Orchestra Teacher of the Year!  Ms. Andrews, we are so proud of you and thank you for your service to the scholars at Githens Middle School!  Such a well deserved honor! 

That’s all for now.  Have a great week.
