Here's what's happening at Gleason in May!
As the school year comes to an end, the Gleason PTO would like to thank everyone for their support. Donuts with Dad, Adventure Dash, Santa's visit, Spring Carnival, and Muffins with Mom were all a success and we appreciate everyone who participates in our events & fundraisers.
The funds raised this year were used to fund two semesters of after school clubs, new swings for the playground, winter & end of year class parties, new lunch carts, classroom supplies, new shelving in the literacy library, a new cabinet in the nurse's office, various treats & special lunches for teachers throughout the year, junior counselor program supplies, field trips for 1st, 3rd & 5th grade, Instructional Specialist training, the 5th grade day celebration, supplies for PE, Music & Art classes, Library books & supplies, Main Street Theatre's visit to the school and so much more! There is no doubt Gleason's PTO has a positive impact on your child's school experience and your support makes a difference.
These are the parents who have volunteered their time to serve their children's school and ensure the continuation of Gleason Elementary's PTO for the 2019-2020 school year. Thanks to them, there will be the funding and organization of all the activities, supplies and events that will enhance every child's school year. If you know them, be sure to thank them!
May 6-10th is Teacher Appreciation Week! We have a "sweet treat" planned during the week and if you'd like to help make the week even sweeter, consider donating a $10 gift card to give away, or write a positive note to the staff to be displayed in the teacher's lounge (Both can be dropped off at 9707 Parmer Ct). You can also leave a message of gratitude on the school marquee! Click hereto submit your message by May 5th.

Looking for the student directory?
The online student directory is available at www.GleasonPTO.com. 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 this website). Being a member of the PTO does not mean you are required to attend meetings or volunteer.
