Have any gently used stuffed animals that need to find a new home? We need them! Just drop them off at the front office in a bag labeled "for carnival."
- Gleason loves SCIENCE! Teachers have several upcoming science demos they want to bring to the classroom but parent volunteers are needed to make that happen. Click the grade below to see training dates & details.
We need board members!
The Gleason PTO is looking for new board members for the 2020-2021 school year! Don't consider yourself the "PTO type?" Neither do we! Have a career and too many other personal commitments? We do too! Looking for an opportunity that pays $0/hour! Look no further! Hesitant to take on something new alone? Share the position with a friend or neighbor!
We have the following board positions open for next school year:
VP of Volunteers- Create online sign ups and publicize the school's volunteer needs.
Historian- We need several people to help put the yearbook together. Photographers, Designers, order & payment collection and Index Editor.
VP of Spring Fundraising- Organizes and plans the annual Gleason Spring Carnival.
If you are interested in joining a great group of parents that work together to enhance the students' and teachers' experience at Gleason, then this is the group for you! The commitment is not overwhelming, we only meet 4 times during the school year for 1 hour. Contact Megan Culpepper at GleasonElementaryPTO@gmail.com.
It's time to order a yearbook!
This year students must PRE-ORDER a yearbook to receive one at the end of the school year! The PTO will NOT be selling yearbooks at year end ceremonies or parties. Click here and enter the yearbook ID code 7608920 to order yours now.
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.
"It's a Tiger Thing" Spirit Shirts are back in stock! Supplies are limited so order yours here and we will deliver to your student's homeroom.
Did you know that Box Tops is going digital? No more clipping...you just scan the receipt! Download the app through the App Store or Google Play or visit https://www.boxtops4education.com/ for more information. Don't forget to designate Gleason as your school of choice! (**For a limited amount of time Box Tops will let us scan AND turn in clipped Box Tops, earning our school TWICE the reward! You can send them in with your student any time!**)
