What we do
Support by providing
librarian hours, needed technology, classroom and student supplies. We provide
various enrichment activities, such as art programs, after-school programs and
school assemblies. In addition, we provide social activities for Gallardo’s
families, such as picnics, movie nights and dinners.
PTA sponsors a wide variety of programs, including FAME (Fine Arts Mini
Experience) and Reflections art programs. We also offer after-school enrichment
with Gator Clubs, educational school-wide assemblies, and the yearbook. We
sponsor the Accelerated Reader program, which your child used to take quizzes
on the books they have read and excel in reading. Fun family activities include
Gator Round-Up, movie nights, restaurant nights, and Gators on the Green.

provided with a teacher startup fund to purchase supplies for the necessary

We post frequent updates about what's happening
around campus and remind you of upcoming events at school.
The electronic sign on the Multi is used to post
important information. While you are on campus, please take a moment to read
the messages displayed there.
The PTA also publishes the school directory each year, making
it easy for parents to communicate with fellow Gator families. It is a great
way to connect with other families to ask questions about homework or schedule
