Happy Summer - PTO Update 06-16-16

Thank You

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 amazing!), The Holiday Breakfast, Ice Skating Night, The Family Dance (you know how to move!), PTO 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 PTO programs. 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

2015-2016 PTO Board

We are excited to announce the new PTO Board Members for the 2016-2017 school year! Please help us congratulate our continuing PTO Board; president Julie Salazar, treasurer Beth Hillberry, and secretary Brooke Johnson.
We also have some wonderful volunteers that agreed to chair some of our events next year: Julie Salazar will chair the Fall Carnival and Holiday Breakfast, Lisa Rohlfing will chair the Family Dance and manage the Yearbook, and Tara Estes will chair Box Tops and Labels for Education. It's wonderful to start off the school year with so much help, but we will need many more of you to give your time.  If you'd like to help with one of the above (or something else) please contact the PTO, we'd love to have you!
