Geckopalooza 2022

Annual MGE Fundraiser

Our Goal is to raise $22,000 by Friday, October 28th.

Can we count on you to help us climb to our fundraising goal?


Our teachers and students are working harder than ever and need our support.

Funds raised during Geckopalooza will support many of our classroom teachers’ needs, instructional programs, and enrichment activities this school year. PTA funding supports Multicultural Night, Spring Fling, Field Trips, Cultural Arts Performances, Gardens, Teacher and Staff Appreciation, and so much more. Specific PTA planned projects include the purchase of new media center furniture for all of our students to enjoy, as well as upgrades to technology equipment.

Wait! There’s more…

Once we raise $10,000… we will celebrate with a school-wide hat day for students and staff!

And once we raise $20,000…Ms. Rickard and Ms. Hunt will dress up as Geckos for a day!


To celebrate our fundraising efforts, all MGE families are invited to Geckopalooza on Thursday, October 27th at 6:00pm. Bring a picnic, or grab dinner at a food truck. We’ll play on the playground, have a costume dance party, raffles and more. Go Geckos!

THERE WILL NOT BE ANOTHER BIG FUNDRAISER THIS YEAR IF WE RAISE AT LEAST $22,000!
