PTO Update 10/02/2016

PTO Big Kahuna Fundraiser

We've made our way to the last week of our fundraiser and everyone is doing so well! But we still need your support!
Remember, your out-of-state relatives and friends can also help us out by shopping online! Check your packet for information on how to set up an account for your student and email out your link!
Remember online orders count towards your prize goal!
Thank you for helping Glenridge!

Popcorn Friday

Friday, October 7, 2016, popcorn will be sold during afternoon recess. Remember to send 50¢ to school. Please send the exact change, it will help the process move faster and give students more time to enjoy their popcorn. Money raised will support Glenridge programs.

Apply to Volunteer at Glenridge

Are you going to volunteer this year? If you want to help out in the classroom, on a field trip or around the school (even after hours), you need to apply online to be a part of Kent School District VIPS - Volunteers in Public Schools.
Once your application has been approved you will be able to assist in school learning, activities, and events at Glenridge. Be a part of a team that is successfully preparing all students for their futures.

SIT Meeting

The School Improvement Team (SIT) meeting is Tuesday, October 11, 2016, from 4:00 pm - 5:15 pm in the Glenridge Library. As part of a collaboration of staff, parents and community members you will help establish plans for improvement and change, hear about opportunities to get involved and make an impact in your child's education.
