Dear Friends of Grove Avenue School:
Welcome to our best year yet! We look forward to seeing new faces -- we are a welcoming community that appreciates your support. We also appreciate the familiar faces returning. You are the engine behind everything we are able to do for our kids and staff.
To stay up to date, please join our Facebook page (/groups/GroveAvePTO) or Twitter feed (@groveavepto) and consider attending our monthly meetings. Our meetings are generally held on the third Tuesday of the month at 9:15 a.m. in the multipurpose room at Grove. The meetings are an important way to hear directly from the PTO, principal and teacher reps. All of us are available to answer any questions, and it's a wonderful way to meet other parents engaged in the Grove community.
We depend on your time and talents. Volunteer opportunities are available throughout the school year and range in commitment levels. Please fill out the form included or contact us.
To expand our commitment to Grove’s students and staff, we have added a few new items this year:
Back To School Coffee for staff
Trunk-or-Treating free event for families
A book for each child
Scholarships for those in need in our Grove family
Thank you for your support in making Grove a place of excellence.
Jessie Erickson Grove Avenue School PTO President
