Welcome to GES PTA

We are proud families and staff that support our children of Guilford Elementary School in Columbia, MD. We look forward to getting to know you better!

We welcome all families and staff to join our PTA and to participate in the many activities that we offer to our members. Parents will enjoy sharing in events with their children, and you can be assured that you won’t be asked to take on more than you can handle.

Did you know that the PTA is one of the largest volunteer organizations in the world?  The over six million members in PTA range from parents, grandparents, and teachers to administrators, students, community leaders and senior citizens. Our Guilford PTA is committed to helping our children have a positive and rewarding learning experience. 

Become a member of Guilford PTA! 

Children learn more and have better lives when families, school staff, and the community work together.  Research has shown that children of involved parents do better in school and on standardized tests, have fewer behavior problems, and are less likely to use drugs or alcohol so let’s make a difference!!!

Guilford PTA provides information and resources through family programs, parent meetings, and other communication channels. 

Know that involvement at the school provides opportunities to get to know school staff members and to learn more about how the school operates. Research has shown that children of involved parents do better in school and on standardized tests, have fewer behavior problems, and are less likely to use drugs or alcohol.
