Greenfield Volunteer Organization (GVO)

Greenfield Volunteer Organization (GVO)

The Greenfield Volunteer Organization (GVO) is a group of volunteers who give their time to help the school in any way possible. We strive to enhance the educational experience of all our children by supporting the students and faculty through fundraising efforts that aid in providing additional equipment, special projects, and services. Our fundraising revenue helps supplement the school budget. The students, teachers, and entire Greenfield family benefits from the GVO. When Parents are involved in their children’s education, they do better in school. When parents are involved in school, children go farther in school and the schools they attend are better all around. We are our children’s most important advocate.

Fall Family Night

Fall Family Night and Grandparents Night will be held on Thursday, October 19th with a schedule of events as follows:

 

  • 3:30-4:30 – Classrooms Open for Grandparent Visits
  • 4:00-7:00 – Fall Family Night Festivities Begin
  • 5:30-7:00 – Parker’s BBQ Dinner in the Cafeteria
  • 7:00-8:00 – Powder Puff Game Begins

 

Just as last year, the Fall Family Night festivities will consist of enjoying an evening of food, fun, and games on Greenfield’s beautiful campus!  We will enjoy a vintage inspired atmosphere with carnival games such as the Three-Legged Race, Ring Toss, Pick A Duck, Gone Fishing, Dunken Booth, Cake Walk, Face Painting, and more.

 

Grandparents can enjoy a complimentary Parker’s BBQ plate in the Greenfield cafeteria on behalf of the GVO. BBQ plates will be available for purchase for all other Fall Family Night attendees. YOU MUST RSVP FOR PARKER’S BBQ. You can reserve your plate by calling the office at 252-237-8046. In addition to the BBQ plates, the GVO we will be serving Hot Dogs, Chips, and a Drink which is included in the price of a Fall Family Night entry bracelet.

 

We will be selling entry bracelets for Fall Family Night. The cost of the bracelets are $10/one, $15/two, $5/each additional bracelet. The cost each bracelet includes all games, snacks, activities, as well as a hot dog/chips/drink for the kids.

 

It takes a team, or in this case - a small village, to carry out an event such as this. With that being said, we are looking for volunteers from each grade to assist us in making Fall Family Night a continued success!  A sign-up sheet will be coming out soon. Be on the lookout for this sign-up sheet through your respective grade parents.

 

We are looking forward to a fun filled evening with you and your families!!
