Glennwood Elementary PTA

Glennwood's PTA Happenings:

-Glennwood Annual Chili and Stew Cook Off:

Save the date!! Sunday October 23rd. DEI Committee hosting!

Some of our favorites (Cake Walk and Dunk Tank) from our Fall Carnival days are making a comeback and we can't wait for all the fun! 

We are looking for chefs in our community to share their favorite Chili or Stew with our families. We will need volunteers to coordinate the cake walk, oversee the dunk tank, help with overall set up/cleanup and also set up tables and tents.  

If you are interested in cooking, organizing or volunteering, please email James Herndon at: Jamesherndon3@gmail.com


Walk & Roll:

-Walk & Roll:

International Walk & Roll to School Day – NEXT Friday October 7, 2022 

You guys did an amazing job last month, and I know we can do it again in October!! Please join us on your feet, your bike or your scooter (don’t forget those helmets!) and let’s show CSD how Eagles SOAR! Students who walk, bike or scoot will continue to enter at their grade specific doors, where they will be counted, using our traditional marbles, by their staff door monitors. We will have new incentives for participating this month! 

And, each marble will still count towards students earning extra school wide recess, with announcements made at Community Circle! Please visit our website for additional details (including our three Walking School Bus Routes) and a full Walk & Roll schedule for the year.

Reach out to Amanda McMillan at: almcmil@gmail.com with questions.

About Us:

 What We Do

The PTA's mission is to make every child’s potential a reality by engaging and empowering students, families, and communities in education. We work year-round to build a strong community and raise funds to support our school, educators, and students.

Our main fundraising sources are the Grill Off, Read-A-Thon, Auction, and corporate and family sponsorships. Through these efforts and relationships, we help fund many offerings and programs such as teacher grants, field studies, facility improvements, and classroom needs. Additionally, throughout the year we host events to help our community connect with and get to know one another.

Who We Are 

The PTA comprises parents and staff affiliated with Glennwood Elementary School, working together to build community through school events, committees, and initiatives. Our Board is made up of Glennwood parents, along with our Principal, Dr. Holly Brookins. The Board meets once a month to discuss upcoming events, goals, needs, and concerns raised in our community. Meetings are open to the community, and we invite you to join us to share your ideas. Please reach out to a PTA Board member for more information.
