PTO Update 9/16/18

National Box Tops Week

Box Tops are a great way to earn cash to purchase important items for Glenridge, such as library books, new technology and so much more. To celebrate the second National Box Tops for Education Week, September 17th – September 23rd, we’re holding an awareness campaign to jump-start our school’s earnings for the year. And we need your help! Our goal is to collect every single Box Top in the area. It’s easy!
DOUBLE our Box Tops fall earnings through 
special sweepstakes as part of National Box Tops for Education Week! Make sure you enter today.
Check out a full list of participating Box Tops products at, and start stocking up on Box Tops. Learn more about National Box Tops for Education Week at nationalboxtopsweek.
Please spread the word to your family, friends and neighbors.
Thank you for your support!  

Send Box Tops Emails

Send an email to family and friends to help make them aware of the money they may be throwing away!
"Every day more and more resources are taken away from public schools making the involvement of PTO's more important than ever. The Glenridge PTO is doing all they can to make a difference in the lives of our students, one way is collecting Box Tops for Education. Each of those little labels is worth 10¢ to our school! With 460 students enrolled, we can come together to make a BIG difference! Would you please take a minute and go through your refrigerator, freezer, and pantry to look for items with the Box Top logo, cut the label out and get them to me or another Glenridge family? It would be appreciated not only by me but all of us at Glenridge."

Bring in the Most

The student who brings in the most Box Tops this week (tickets will be counted daily) will be rewarded with an Inflatables wristband (a $10 value!) at our Fall Carnival on October 19th. Box Tops must be complete to count (they need to have the code in the upper left-hand corner and the whole expiration date) and have a valid expiration date. Winner will be contacted October 2.
Curriculum Night
Meet your student's teacher(s) and find out about their class schedule, homework expectations and plans for the year. You will also have the chance to meet other parents and staff members.
September 18
6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Do you use the remind app? Get PTO reminders sent right to your phone! Just download, put in our class code: grpto and never forget about a Popcorn Friday (10/5), Movie Night (9/28) or due date (Box Tops due 9/24) again!
Picture Day
Hellriegel's Foto 1 Portrait Studio will be taking individual portraits of all students. To purchase your student's picture please fill out the envelope packet that was sent home with Friday Flyers and return it to school on the 25th. Please remember to pick a background color, if no choice is made the background will be blue. Each student needs an order envelope with payment, do not combine them. Please send the exact amount, the school does not have change.
Art Docents Needed
In cooperation with The Interurban Center for the Arts, Glenridge PTO volunteers provide monthly art lessons to all of our students. The Art Docent program at Glenridge gives our students an opportunity to learn about different artists and works of art from different cultures. We have a wonderful set of art to share this year; volunteer to help with this amazing program! Many of our classes need volunteers and assistants, training classes have started, contact us to help!

Family Movie Night

Dracula, who operates a high-end resort away from the human world, goes into overprotective mode when a boy discovers the resort and falls for the count's teenaged daughter.
Come to this month's selection on PTO Movie Night Friday, September 28th in the Glenridge cafeteria. This is a free event for students and their families. Concessions will be available for purchase; funds raised will support PTO programs. This is not a drop off event; children must be accompanied by a responsible adult.
