PTO Update 6-22-18

Thank You!

The PTO would like to express our appreciation to Glenridge parents, guardians, and staff; your attendance, financial support and volunteer time made this year a success. Whether you donated your time, talent, or attended a PTO meeting, we appreciate your support and couldn’t have done it without you. We saw so many of you at the Fall Carnival, the Holiday Breakfast, Ice Skating Night, the Family Dance, the Yearbook Party 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 in our PTO and volunteer at Glenridge, your lives will be enriched and your children will notice how much you value their education. There are lots of opportunities to help; big, small, at the school and at home, be sure to contact the PTO or let your teacher(s) know your availability so we can help you find the perfect fit.

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
