Every dollar counts!

The Gillespie PTO is excited to announce the return of our Gillespie Fussless Fundraiser, which runs from November 3 to December 1! 

Our goal is to raise $8,000. 

That’s a lot, but together, we can meet this goal!

** Tell your family, tell your friends, tell your employer! **

This is the primary PTO fundraiser of the year, and it’s a simple one. Simply donate dollars. Gillespie students won’t have to sell anything and 100 percent of your donation goes directly to Gillespie Middle School. Upon successful completion, this will be the main request for donations from PTO for the entire school year!

PTO dollars support your child’s educational experiences through: 

  • 6th Grade Welcome Day 
  • 7th Grade Mad City Challenge
  • 8th Grade Celebration
  • Forward Testing Breakfast
  • Schools Dances
  • Cultural Events
  • Biweekly Popcorn Sale (encouraging positive behavior through pride tickets)
  • School Spirit Events
  • Staff Appreciation
  • Special initiatives, as they arise 

To meet our $8,000 goal, we are asking families to consider donating ANY AMOUNT that you can, as small or large as you feel fit. 

We appreciate ALL donations to the Gillespie PTO!

Participation matters! 

Gillespie Middle School is a vibrant community of staff, students and families. Communities thrive when everyone participates and supports one another. We hope that many families will participate in this effort to support our school community. 

Incentive for Success!  

The PTO anticipates a successful fundraiser. To celebrate, the students will have a special Celebration Day at school with games, popcorn and fun!
