It's January and here's what's happening this month at Gleason!

 author visit ACthirdfieldtrip2019

December was a busy month and PTO dollars were hard at work! Gleason's PTO sponsored a visit from author Angela Cervantes who encouraged and inspired all our 3rd, 4th & 5th graders. The PTO also sponsored the 3rd grade field trip to MainStreet Theatre. The PTO also gifted the teachers and staff with 2 brand new Keurigs in the teachers' lounge and treated every classroom at Gleason to a holiday party.


Ms Compton needs clothes!

Our sweet school nurse, Ms Compton is in need of boys and girls winter clothes, especially pants! If you are willing to donate any gently used clothing that meets school dress code,  please drop off at the front office labeled "for clinic."

It's time to order a yearbook!
