PTSA, SCRIP Program, and Booster Groups

Parental involvement and volunteerism in Maggie Walker are one of our longest-standing traditions. Parent volunteers are in the halls, the school offices, the classrooms, and at every major school event. This year’s PTSA President is Beth Simms.

Some of the events sponsored by our PTSA include the yearly Fall Festival, faculty and staff appreciation meals, and welcoming events for new parents. The PTSA also supports the community by maintaining the Dragon’s Lair Student Store, and by publishing the student directory and the weekly email newsletter, Smoke & Scales. Our PTSA Advocacy Committee keeps the school connected to our participating school divisions, as well as elected officials.

Great Lake Scrip Program, the cost-you-nothing extra fundraiser!

In 2020/2021 we raised over $2000, help us raise at least $2500 this upcoming year. Simply do some of your everyday shopping with gift cards or e-certificates and Great Lake Scrip gives a percentage back to the MLWGS PTSA.

For a full list of retailers, to enroll, and to shop, go to Great Lake Scrip. Contact your Scrip Coordinator at for the enrollment code. 

Order due dates for 2021/2022 for plastic cards will be on the following Fridays: 9/24, 10/22, 11/12, 12/3, 12/10, 1/21, 2/18, 3/18, 4/22, 5/20, and 6/10. Cards will be available for pick up the following week at school.  If you choose to pay by check, please make out to MLWGS PTSA with Scrip in the memo and deliver to Room 100 (Valenta William’s office) the morning of the due date.  You can also pay by credit card or by securely linking your bank account to your Scrip account, the easiest way. Learn how here: Scrip Payment options.

Don’t want to wait for the due date?  Order and receive digital e-cards immediately with the Raise Right App, or by logging in to the Scrip website and placing an e-card order (just make sure to choose the e-certificate option)  It’s easy to shop and pay directly from your phone in minutes by downloading the Raise Right App. Find more information here: Raise Right App.

Parent Booster Groups combine volunteerism with fundraising to support specific areas of interest in the school. In addition to assisting coaches, teachers, and activity sponsors with organizational and logistical tasks, the Booster Groups partner with the PTSA and the Governor’s School Foundation in the yearly Night of the Dragon fundraising auction.
