Grandfriends Day Coming Soon

Grandfriends Day Help Needed

Our special day is fast approaching (November 24) and help is needed. A flyer went home asking for your support in building classroom baskets for our raffle. This is always a great fundraiser for our PTO as well as a fun event for our grandparents. Please contact the office if you would like another copy of what basket each classroom is building.

PTO will also be sending out a form for other volunteers on this day as well. This is such a wonderful event that connects or school to our community.

PTO Donates $12,000 for Playground

The School Board of Greenfield has now approved the donation of $12,000 from our PTO for the new playground equipment. The school district has approved $5,000 towards the removal of old equipment as well as installation and mulch. Along with the $15,000 grant I received this summer, we now have the funds for the new playground!

A big thank you to our PTO for all of the hard work to make this happen for our Glenwood community!

Ashley Furniture Reading Lounge Coming Soon

Ashley Furniture has donated $4,400 worth of furniture to help Glenwood create a "Reading Lounge" for classes to use. This new space will be located in Room 114 right across from our cafeteria. Classrooms will be able to use this space for large group and small group reading and research. This will be another great space for our kids here at school.

Panda Express Dining Fundraiser

Wednesday, November 18th is our dining fundraiser at Panda Express on 76th across from the South Ridge Mall entrance. Come join the family fun and take a night off from cooking to help support our PTO!

Book Fair is Coming

The Book Fair will be open from November 18th - 24th. Each class will sign up for a time to take their class to the Book Fair. It will also be open from 8:00 - 4:00 each day. This will be another way to get great books for your child to read at home.

Grandparents will also have an opportunity to visit the book fair on our Grandfriends Day!!
