Happy Thanksgiving!

Enjoy the short school week and the extra time with your family and friends. 

Holiday Breakfast

This year's Holiday Breakfast is Saturday December 6th, 9:00 - 11:00 am. A yummy pancake breakfast, a choir performance, face painting, crafts and a photo booth! Suggested donation of $5 per family. All proceeds will go to purchasing needed classroom supplies.  
We are excited to have a raffle at this years breakfast! Purchase one ticket for $3 or four tickets for $10 and have a chance to win an American Girl Doll!  With a value of $115, Julie and her story book would make a wonderful gift.

We also need 2-3 photo booth operators.

Help us make this breakfast even more yummy, a financial contribution will help to purchase an assortment of breakfast meats (bacon and sausage), please make out checks to Glenridge PTO, write “Holiday Breakfast” on your envelope and leave them at the school office.

We would love your involvement. Any other suggestion of how we can make this a bigger and better occasion is welcome! Send all offers of help and suggestions to
