Looking for donations!
We are looking for recess donations. Outdoor toys such as balls, jump ropes, chalk, and hula hoops. Now is the time to tackle that to-do list item and clean out your garage/closet. There will be a collection box at craft night November 13th and 14th.
We are also looking for tennis balls for chair legs!

Hello Greenwood Gators!
I am so excited to see all of the school spirit this year from students and parents alike. It has been great to meet so many of you at our Open House Cook Out, Back to School Nights, or record-breaking first PTA meeting. Due to such proactive parents, many of our event coordinator volunteer positions have already been filled, but we are always welcome to new ideas for fun and educational extracurricular activities. And there is always more work to be done, so keep on the lookout for volunteer sign ups, or reach out to myself or our volunteer coordinators with your ideas!
Thank you for helping our students adapt so quickly to all of the new school procedures this year. Safety is a high priority, and the new student entrance and exit procedures, as well as the new party guidelines, are there for the security and comfort of the children.
If you have not yet had a chance to join the PTA, please do so! Your voice helps shape your children’s school, and your money helps fund those activities! To join, go to join.myschoolanywhere.com and use the access code “JoinGreenwood”. After completing your students information and confirming your contact information you can visit the “Store” and purchase a membership for $20. As a member of the PTA you will have the right to vote on topics at our PTA meetings as well as gain access to the student directory - now offered exclusively online through the portal.
If you haven’t already taken a few minutes to link your Harris Teeter, Giant, or Target Red card to Greenwood, now is the time! It takes only minutes to do, and all you have to do is shop like you normally do to earn money for the school. For directions on how to link your cards yourself, download the grocery program flier or contact Jen Levithan for help. Yay, free money!
Coming up we have movie night, Friday September 28th, and our Readathon will coincide with the Book Fair in late October. Look for information to come home in the next couple of weeks.
Hope to see you at our next PTA meeting, Tuesday October 2nd, 7-8pm.
Greenwood PTA President
