Gifford School

PTA News & Events


As a precaution during the COVID-19 situation, the Gifford Carnival Comiittee is postponing the grand raffle drawing that was scheduled on March 28th.  As schools are shut down, there isn't a place to collect sold tickets for the drawing by the 28th nor do we want to risk the health and safety of our community during this time.  Once school is back in session we will advise the new drawing date.  Should the school closure go longer than anticipated, we will pick a drawing date within 60 days. In regards to selling raffle tickets, the committee will be unable to provide extra tickets to any student after March 28th to be in accordance with WI Gaming provisions.


Please watch for updates on the grand raffle and a message will be out soon on how to bid on our awesome baskets that have been donated.


If you have any questions, please contact Tracie Feest,,  carnival chair or Laura Matter,, PTA president.


Volunteer Opportunities:

We have many activities throughout the school year that need volunteers to lead. Please contact Tracie Feest at to find out how you can get involved.  You'll have the support of the Exec Board and other PTA members, so don't be afraid to jump in!
