PTO Update 12/9/18

Holiday Breakfast Success!

What a great morning! A big THANK YOU to Kelly Jennings and Connie Thoong for all of their time and talents! A big THANK YOU to all our volunteers and donors, this huge event couldn't happen without you. A big THANK YOU to the Glenridge Staff, part of the wonderful Holiday Breakfast tradition is the staff getting up and coming to school on their day off to spend more time with us, it's always so fun to spend extra time with all of you, not to mention all the help you provide! And last, but certainly not least a big THANK YOU to all of you, you got up early on a weekend and spent your morning with us.
Help plan our next big event The Family Spring Dance in March. Contact the PTO to find out what you can do!

Fundraiser Update

Thank you to everyone who helped with our fundraiser, without students and their families support we wouldn't be able to do the many things our PTO does, like field trip transportation, reading programs and Reptile Man (coming this January). We are so grateful for everyone who came and picked up their orders so promptly, Not to mention all of our volunteers that gave up their time to make sure everything ran smoothly.
Our silly string party is being planned and will take place before winter break!
