Spirit Night at Chipotle March 4th

Chipotle is hosting a spirit night on Sunday, March 4th from 4-8pm. This is a good one, 50% of the proceeds will be donated to Gleason's PTO! Be sure and mention Gleason at checkout!


We are treating Gleason's teachers and staff to lunch on Friday, March 9th. We are looking for volunteers to set up, serve and clean up. Can't volunteer? That's ok! We are also needing desserts and $10 gift cards. Sign up here!

How are PTO funds spent?

  • PTO paid for the winter class parties. Every class celebrated the winter break with games and snacks. A special thank you to Kelly Wussow for planning parties for every grade on a tight budget!
  • PTO purchased large group supplies including an iPad for the Art Room!
  • PTO provided a special Valentine's Day lunch for teachers and staff with pizza and delicious heart shaped cookies. Thank you to Emily Guarino for planning another Teacher Appreciation Lunch and Christen Phillips at Wisk Upon a Star for the beautiful cookies.

December's Adventure Dash Fundraiser was a big success! We raised over $12,000 and can now begin the process of building the hard top cover. Thank you to all who participated and a special thank you to Kristi Ratcliffe for planning a super fun Adventure Dash!
