Glennwood Elementary PTA

Glennwood's PTA Happenings:

-Walk & Roll:

Come on out for our final Walk & Roll of 2022!!  Bundle up to 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 special incentives for students this month! 

Don’t forget, each marble counts towards students earning extra school wide recess, with announcements made at Community Circle! For additional details (including our three Walking School Bus Routes) and a full Walk & Roll schedule for the year, please visit the Glennwood website: https://www.csdecatur.net/Domain/530

-Glennwood’s DEI: Indigenous History Nature Walk

Please join us to learn about DeKalb history and nature with Ranger Jonah at Mason Mill Park on Saturday, December 10 from 10am to 12pm. Please sign up for this awesome event using this link. (Event is open for 30 people.)

-Glennwood Staff Appreciation December Event: Hot Cocoa and Treat Bar, hosted by Kindergarten:

This year, to show our appreciation for our amazing staff, the Glennwood PTA will be sponsoring a staff snack table in addition to hosting other staff appreciation events later in the year. We are asking each grade level to "stock the table" for a given month; each grade will be asked to sponsor a staff appreciation event twice this year. We kindly ask that each family participate in one of the two opportunities for your grade level (the intention is that a family only needs to participate once).  

For December, we're asking Kindergarten families to host a "Hot Cocoa and Treat Bar" for our staff on Thursday, December 15th . If you're a kindergarten family, please visit the Sign Up Genius here to sign up to bring in one or more items for our staff.  Please drop off your items with Ms. Reynolds at the front office December 12-14 anytime during school hours and the PTA will assemble the snack table for our staff to enjoy on December 15th. Items can be store-bought or homemade, in bulk or individually packaged. The PTA is also requesting clean up volunteers, so please sign up via the Sign Up Genius if you can volunteer your time to help clean up.  If you are unable to purchase items for the table but would like to donate funds towards the event, the PTA is also collecting monetary donations. Please Paypal your donation to the PTA at Treasurer@Glennwoodpta.org with a note that it is for the December Snack Table and we'll take care of it for you.  

If you have any questions, please reach out to Staff Appreciation Co-Chairs: Haley Stevens (haleycstevens@gmail.com) or Samantha Bryan (samantha.chopp@gmail.com).

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.
