Welcome back everyone!
The new school year is here and Gleason's PTO wants to keep you updated on all that is happening this month.
Thank you to everyone who purchased a spirit shirt at Tiger Express! The PTO used the proceeds from spirit shirt sales to fund the Steps to Literacy Kinder Library, purchase new lunch carts, and replenish PE supplies! The PTO was also able to treat the Gleason staff to a fun "Welcome Back" lunch & new white board markers!
