Glengary PTA 2016-2017 School Year
The PTA would like to welcome you back to the 2016-17 school year at Glengary Elementary…home of the Gators! We hope you had a great summer! We are very proud of our school and its’ strong history of volunteerism. This year will be no different. As a PTA we work collaboratively to support the school through many events and volunteer opportunities. The goal of the board is to provide all students with a rewarding and exciting school year built on programs that drive education, self-esteem and memories that will last a lifetime.
There are many ways you can support us in our efforts. Your first opportunity to show your support is to join the PTA. When you join the PTA you become not only a member of the Glengary PTA, but also a member of the Michigan PTA and the National PTA, which is comprised of nearly 5 million members. This means you become a member of the world’s largest child advocacy group.
The second way to show your support is to participate in the numerous events and programs we offer throughout the year. Your participation could be that of a committee chairperson, volunteer or simply an attendee. Whatever level of participation you select will certainly be appreciated! Your first opportunity to get involved is with our Fun Run (Oct 14th). This is our largest Fundraiser!
Here are just a few examples of the items that we are able to provide:
$4,000 for field trips ($10 per child) $900 Scholarships for Glengary Students
$3,000 Staff Grants ($100 per teacher) $500 Music Program
$500 Physical Education $1,200 Assemblies
$500 Art Program $1,300 toward Literacy
$250 K-2 take home folders $700 3-5 Student Planners
$1,800 Time for Kids Weekly Reader $4,000 School Beautification
In July 2016 we had a walking track installed on our playground. This was a huge accomplishment and we are excited to incorporate the track into our school year. We could not accomplish any of this without the generous support of our Glengary families! Thank you and we look forward to another great school year!
