The Edwin H. Greene Intermediate School PTO is a vibrant and committed group of parents, staff members, and administrators who volunteer their time and talents for the welfare of all children. Through fundraisers, the PTO helps provide equipment, resource material, entertainment, and learning opportunities.
To join the PTO, obtain a membership form from the school. Members do not have to attend meetings to be involved.
Questions about the PTO can be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
E.H. Greene Student Directory Update:
A copy of the Student Directory is provided to all PTO members as part of your membership. If your student didn't give you your copy, please remember to ask them about it. If you did not receive a directory, please contact Carrie Gause or Jill Pyles at email@example.com.
Come, join our very own parent group on Facebook!
We are glad to announce that we have our very own " E. H. Greene Parents" group on Facebook now. All the members in the group can now be updated through Facebook about current events, fund-raising, school pictures and other school information.
You can now post your suggestions, pictures or comments and keep yourself updated with the current events at Edwin H. Greene School! Please join and you can add or invite more members to this group by using their Email Id's. Preferably send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org with the name of your student, their grade and your email id as part of the verification process. Being a part of the Facebook group will be an excellent medium for interaction between the parents. As it is a closed group, only members can access the information in the group. Please click here for the link. Looking forward to your participation in the group! Thanks!
The Can You Hack-ett Challenge:
The PTO's fun physical activity challenge begins Thursday, October 9th! The challenge was so successful last spring that Mr. Hackett is raising the challenge! We're striving for 60 minutes of physical activity every day for 4 weeks...just like Mr. Hackett. The wing (students & teachers!!) with the most physical activity minutes at the end of the challenge will win an extra 30-minute recess! Forms are in today's Thursday envelope, or you can print a copy here. If you would rather track your activity online, create a free profile and use the Physical Activity Tracker at www.supertracker.usda.gov.
To encourage a wide variety of physical activity, we're also holding another Action Photo contest. Submit a 1MB digital photo, (.jpg) of yourself engaged in a physical activity. Whatever you do to get your heart rate up works...swimming, raking leaves, playing soccer, riding your bike, walking the dog...you name it! Winners will have their photo enlarged to banner size and hung in the hallway. Be a " Greene Superstar"! For questions, or to submit a photo, contact email@example.com.
