About us!

GBE PTA is a volunteer, non-profit organization focused on helping our school aged children. Money is raised through membership and fundraising activities (Annual Walk-A-Thon, Kroger Community Rewards, and family spirit nights), to support cultural events, school and classroom improvements, supplies and materials, habitat gardens, and free PTA events for the whole family.


You can help your child succeed by working with the school and other community groups that have an impact on your child. You really make a difference! When you are involved, your child achieves more! Check out events tab to learn about upcoming volunteer opportunities and family events.


What helps to make Grafton Bethel such a GREAT community? Our parent volunteers! Grafton Bethel PTA takes great pride in its tremendous parent volunteer support. You can really make a difference!
