Welcome back everyone!

The new school year is here and Gleason's PTO wants to keep you up to date on all that is happening this month.


The PTO used the proceeds from last year's Adventure Dash and Spring Carnival fundraisers to purchase a brand new marquee for the school. A digital marquee eliminates the need for parent volunteers to update the marquee one letter at a time! Be sure to check it often for announcements and news as it'll be updated frequently. If you'd like to wish your student a Happy Birthday on the new marquee go here! (deadline to purchase is sept 30)

muralThe PTO also purchased a new mural for the cafeteria stage! This mural not only promotes school spirit but also serves as a much needed back drop for various events and performances throughout the school year. As an added bonus, students were able to watch the artist create and paint the mural during their lunchtime. 

Looking for the student directory?

The online student directory is available at  A PTO membership is required to access the directory. Annual membership is $10 and pays for the administrative costs of the PTO (taxes, insurance, bank fees, supplies, and our website). Being a member of the PTO does not mean you are required to attend meetings or volunteer.

The 5th Grade class is selling magnetic decals with the Gleason logo for $7. All proceeds go towards their 5th Grade Day Party at the end of the year. Click here to order this decal as well as spirit shirts and other fun spirit items. If you pre-ordered a decal already, it will be delivered to your students homeroom soon.
