Welcome to the Georgetown PTA

We are a group of busy parents that want to help the Georgetown, MA schools. We create—and fund—learning experiences your kids love…and make lasting impressions. And we have a lot of fun along the way! If you haven’t already, join in!! And if you already have – thanks! We’re glad to have you on board. 

 

Two Upcoming Events from Georgetown CARES:

Last fall, Georgetown students in grades 6-12 took the 2017 Attitudes and Behaviors Survey to measure risk behaviors and “asset levels” (more on those below).

On TUESDAY, APRIL 24th, from 6:30-8:00 parents, students in grades 6-12, community members and leaders are invited to hear the results of this survey at the GMHS. Let’s discuss how we can support our young people to mature into healthy and successful adults! If you have questions about this event, please contact the GMHS Guidance Department.

Those interested may also attend the 40 Developmental Assets Parent Training WorkshopTUESDAY, MAY 1st, 6:30-8:30pm at GMHS. Host Tina Los of the Essex County Asset Builders Network will lead this roundtable discussion. The “40 Developmental Assets” are a set of skills, relationships and behaviors that enable youth to be successful as adults. Research has confirmed that children who have more assets in their lives thrive and make healthier choices for themselves. This event is sponsored by GeorgetownCARES. Please call Pam Lundquist at 978-352-5407 or email tenhawkway@comcast.net if you have any questions.

Note: The Essex County Asset Builder Network is an organization funded by a three-year grant with the goal of helping families and community-leaders in Essex County use the “40 Developmental Asset” framework to help young people thrive. Check out their web site; it’s good stuff.
