Thank you for the AMAZING lunch today!! Torchy's was a hit!! We appreciate ALL that you do!!
Way to go Galatas!
Thanks to the officers for showing up to Walk to School Day!
Chalk the Walk in preparation for WALK TO SCHOOL day tomorrow was awesome!!! Thanks to Julia Belforti for writing all students names! Thanks to all the awesome Galatas and parent volunteers and woodlands HS volunteers tonight!

See you in the morning!!!
When is K lunch?
Anyone have a quick link to the K supply list? TIA
TWO trumpets available. Both are Yamahas. Each originally purchased for $650 from the Music and Arts store. One has a better finish than the other. Over time, the other one's finish has worn a bit. Looking to sell one for $350 and the other with the worn finish for $250. Both of course would come with a case and mouthpieces. Message me if interested!
A huge THANK YOU! to everyone who came out early today and helped us paint our paws! They look great!! Next time we do this, we’ll be sure to buy a lot more donuts. 😂😊♥️♥️♥️
Could someone tell me how we get raffle prizes we weren’t able to collect on Friday? Will they be sent home with students or do parents have to come in to get them? TIA
Looking for 3 wristbands or even 4.
Conroe ISD have 2 proposed calendars and are seeking feedback - please post comments via the CISD website (link in comments below) and not on the PTO FB page. https://www.conroeisd.net/about/school-calendar-process/#feedback

Committed to collaboration between parents and teachers in an effort to maximize the education experience for our children, K-4.

The Bubble Run Fall Fundraiser starts Now! Read below for details!

What: The Bubble Run is our fall fundraiser. We only have two fundraisers at Galatas each year, and this is one of them. The Bubble Run fundraiser is organized completely by the Galatas PTO, so all of the funds raised go directly to our school. This year the funds will be used to replace playground equipment. Every student gets a Galatas Bubble Run t-shirt thanks to a donation from Adventure Kids Playcare.

Who: All Galatas students participate! Who can donate? Anyone! Friends and family can donate through our website. Galatas students can also donate extra change in their classroom or on the lunch room stage.

Where: You can learn more and donate here: https://www.galataspto.com/fall-fundraiser.html

When: Fundraising starts now until Friday November 19th. On Friday the 19th, our students get to run outside around the Galatas car loop, during their normal PE time, with music and bubbles flying all around! Parents are welcome to come to the car loop to watch and cheer on their child. Like last year, you are also more than welcome to make a yard sign for the car loop. Those need to be dropped off between 9-2 on Nov. 17th on the front porch bench.

Community Service Project Bonus: A new addition to our fall fundraiser this year is a community service project. Not only are we raising funds for the students but we want to give back to the community as well. We will be teaming up with Kids' Meals Inc and The Montgomery County Food Bank. A signup genius will be sent out where you can sign up to donate items.

Please contact [email protected] with any questions. Let's raise some funds for our school!
