  • Children's Book Harvest

    Got books? Join us in partnering with The Children’s Book Bank to collect a whopping 20,000 books during this year’s Children's Book Harvest book drive. Bring in your gently used or new books appropriate for babies, toddlers, elementary age children, and middle schoolers. Drop off your books at the Robert Gray Library from November 12th through November 26th (we are accepting them at fall conferences). Our goal at Robert Gray is to collect 500 books. Of special need are books that feature children of color and books in Spanish. Consider donating new books that reflect the wonderful diversity of the PPS community. Cash donations are also accepted and allow The Children's Book Bank to purchase books in Spanish and other books not generally collected in the book drive. Families who wish to contribute cash to support the Children's Book Harvest may donate here. Please help us put a book in the hand of every child.
    For more information contact: Teacher Librarian, Julie McMillan,
  • Auction/Benefit Help Sought

    We are currently looking for volunteers to join our Benefit/Auction team for the 2019/2020 school year, which will be held in the spring. Do you have great ideas or passion for parties? Then we need you! We're planning a great event that will generate a large portion of our PTA dollars that fuel our Chromebook fleet and fund our Foundation. Our goal is to build a fun, inclusive event that builds community and raises much-needed revenue for our school. If you can volunteer some time to help procure donations, auction items, or if you want to make a donation, please reach out. We are also looking for people to help set up the behind-the-scenes logistics to make our event a success. If you can help, please let us know! Contact Allie Pettitt at

    Please only choose one time slot per teacher in order for teachers to see as many students as possible.
    Rather than scheduling conferences back-to-back, it works better to leave five minutes or more between each.
    If you are signing up for multiple students, take your time so you do not double book.
    Teachers and staff are not able to make changes for you. You can do this yourself following these directions:
