Thank You! Looking forward to Fall - PTO WEEKLY UPDATE 6/14/2015

A big THANK YOU to all Glenridge parents, guardians and staff; because of you we had a wonderful school year! Your attendance, financial support and volunteer time made this year a success.  We saw so many of you at the Fall Carnival (the costumes were spectacular!), The Holiday Breakfast, Ice Skating Night, The Family Dance (you know how to move!), Movie Nights and more.  All of that support resulted in another year of field trip transportation for each grade, reading programs, classroom support and other school initiatives.  We look forward to hosting these events and new activities next year.

I can't encourage you enough to participate with our PTO and volunteer at Glenridge, your lives will be enriched and your children will notice how much you value their education.

As the school year comes to an end, we want to wish everyone who will not be back at Glenridge next year a happy future wherever life takes you.

Have a happy summer and see you next year!
The Glenridge PTO

Box Top and Labels for Education

Thanks to all of you we collected 10,298 Box Tops or $1029.80 and 22,969 Labels for Education points!
Thank you to all those who participated. Every Box Top and Label for Education counts and will help pay for our kids to go on field trips and have special events at school. The more we collect, the more our VOYAGERS receive throughout the year. Make sure you continue to clip and save over the summer!

G.I.V.E. Winner

Thanks to everyone who participated in our G.I.V.E. program and volunteered three hours of their time for your child and Glenridge. It's wonderful to see all the adults helping around the building!
All of the names were entered into a drawing and we would like to Thank and Congratulate Raymond Swain, he won a gift card to Amazon!

Thank you Art Docents!

Thank you to all of our Art Docent volunteers.  It is because of you that we keep Art Alive in the classroom.  These docents dedicated their time to provide your child with projects that followed the Washington States visual arts education requirements (EALR’s).   Each grade level got to create  projects that taught different techniques of art using various types of media. If you would like to be one of these volunteers next year please fill out and return a form or contact the PTO.
