Breaking News! This year there are two changes to back to school. 1) There will be a New Greenwood Family Orientation on August 21 at 6:30pm. Families new to Greenwood should come and meet the principal, take a tour of the school, ask any and all questions AND join the PTA! This is for adults only. 2) Open House (when you come and meet your teacher) will be on THURSDAY August 30th from 4-5:00pm. Following the Open House the PTA will be hosting a cook out!!! Want to sign up to help? Willing to bring some food?!?
Hello Greenwood Parents and Students!
My name is Mary Quirion and I am really looking forward to being the PTA President for Greenwood Elementary School over the next two years. There are quite a few changes at Greenwood this year, and it’s an exciting time to be involved in helping to make Greenwood an even better place for our children.
My family has been a part of the Olney community for almost 6 years. I currently have two children at Greenwood, a rising 5th grader (how is this possible?!?) and a 2nd grader as well as a future gator at home. I have been an active member of the PTA for the past several years.
The Parent Teacher Association is an important school partner. Our purpose is to engage and empower families and our community in order to make every child’s potential a reality and to be an advocate for all children. We help provide opportunities for parents to get involved in their child’s elementary school experience. Throughout the year we hold many family activities that allow students and families to get to know one another and we support our school and the staff through staff appreciation activities and classroom enrichment funds.
We are already beginning to plan for next year. Our events cannot happen without your support and help. Thank you to those that have already contacted me to help next year. Anyone else that would like to be involved please check back here for various job postings or contact our volunteer coordinators, email@example.com, to learn about the different positions that are available. Many positions are available throughout the year, big and small, and we can help find one that suits your schedule! Even if you can’t volunteer next year, your financial support is essential to helping us have a successful program, so please remember to register for the PTA . You must re-register for every school year.
The first PTA meeting for the 2018/2019 school year will be held Wednesday, September 12th, in the media center from 7-8pm. Mark your calendars so you can be sure to be there!
