Each year we produce an 8 1/2 x 11″, full color Auction program and yearbook for Greene Towne. It includes images and details of each classroom artwork and the Kindergarten artwork, along with class photos, candids and tribute ads that help offset the costs of production.  Every GTMS family receives a copy of the program/yearbook free of charge. Attendees will receive it at the Live Auction on May 20th and all others will receive it via Friday folders the week of May 23rd. 

1) Submit a maskless, candid photo of your child(ren) (to be included in the yearbook, free of charge) by emailing it to cschweingruber@gtms.org (please send a high resolution JPEG)

Enjoy arts and crafts for the kids and a performance from 11:15-12:00 by children’s entertainer Mr. David Perry with madcap music and movement, playful puppets and props, supersized sketches, and lots of laughs.   Register for the Gallery Walk
