logo What is the Glenkirk Elementary School

Parent Teacher Organization?

The mission of the Glenkirk PTO is to collaboratively focus on assisting all Glenkirk Elementary Students to meet the high standards of scholastic achievement in a safe, welcoming community that will inspire lifelong success.

Some of the ways the PTO helps the Glenkirk community are: 
*Teacher stipends for classroom supplies 
*Micro grants used to fund special projects such as March Madness books, flexible seating, and interactive materials for the classrooms or extracurricular activities 
*Free events open to all Glenkirk families such as the Ice Cream Social
*Paid events open to the community at large such as BINGO night, 5K & Fun Run, and Spring Fling 
*Sponsorship of Cub Scout Pack 28 
*Year-end Funding Projects - in recent years, we have funded several magazine subscriptions for the classrooms, the electronic marquee sign at the school entrance, technology for the classrooms, and the brand new playground shades and benches  

Get involved and help the PTO meet objectives:

  • Become a member! Vote on the Annual Budget, funding projects, and school events. Join us at our monthly meetings on the first Tuesdays of the month at 6:30pm!   **Joining the PTO DOES NOT require you to do anything. The membership fee helps fund our Microgrants program, so you are still supporting our school just for signing up!**
  • Scan your grocery receipts into the Box Tops app or continue to clip and collect Box Tops and send them in with your student.  
  • Shop with Amazon Smiles and choose Glenkirk Elementary PTO as your charity   
  • Connect your grocery shopping cards (Harris Teeter)   
  • Participate in our two main fundraisers - Boosterthon Fun Run and Silent Auction   
  • Volunteer to help with events throughout the year
  • And many other opportunities to come

Being involved with the PTO does not mean hours and hours of your time spent at the school or doing PTO "stuff." Any time you are able to give to our support our school helps!
