It's December and here's what's happening this month at Gleason!
Once again, a BIG thank you to everyone who supported our fall fundraiser, Adventure Dash. This fundraiser was so successful that the PTO was able to extend this year's budget to allow for every teacher to receive a $100 spending allowance for their classroom and students! The playground will also be getting new soccer goals!

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.
