Puerto Vallarta PGS PTO Fundraiser

We are thrilled to announce that our last PTO fundraiser at Puerto Vallarta that took place on April 8 raised $800.00 dollars! We wanted to thank all the PGS families who participated in the fundraiser to support both Puerto Vallarta and the PGS PTO. Way to go PGS families!
The Pine Grove PTO would like to extend a big Thank You to Tanvi and her Crafts for Kindness Program! Along with our continued PGS community support, we were able to raise over $150 for our PTO! We are so thrilled that a former PGS grad has used her creative talents for such thoughtful and worthy causes. Even though our partnership has ended, please continue to visit Tanvi's website when you need a special homemade card or gift. We expect that all of the orders should be delivered over this week and next. If you do not receive your order by the end of next week, please email!Thank You TANVI and PGS!
