CARNIVAL - Thank You Volunteers!

The PTO would like to thank everyone who supported and participated in Greene Fest this year. We had a record-breaking Carnival and couldn't have done it without our amazing volunteers, community, staff, and students.

Student Item Drop-offs

In an effort to limit classroom interruptions during the day due to items being dropped off for students, we will only call into the classroom immediately before lunch and again just before dismissal. We encourage our students to come to school with everything they will need for the day (ie, computers, instruments, lunches, homework) and hope this will be a help to you as well! Thank you!

PTO Spring Gifting

It's time again for another round of PTO gifting. Please use the following link to fill out a request form.
