The Glendale PTC (Parent, Teacher, Child) organization has a mission of working together to build the learner’s community through encouragement, involvement, and support.

Who can be a PTC member?  All interested parents, guardians, teachers, staff and children are welcome at all PTC meetings.

What happens at the PTC meetings?  We have monthly meetings to discuss events happening at our schools and affecting our students. We volunteer in all areas of student life at the school. We facilitate fundraisers so that teachers and staff can provide programs and projects that would not be possible with the school’s tight budget. Parents have opportunities to connect and interact with other parents, staff and the school principals.  We align our goals with Glendale’s goals to help the support the staff in achieving these goals.

What can I do to get involved?  There are many ways to be part of your child’s education no matter how much time you have to give.

  • Volunteer your time in the classroom and/or at the many events sponsored by the PTC. Contact your child’s teacher about classroom volunteering. For event volunteering watch for Sign-up Genius requests that are sent to parents via email.
  • Fulfill a teacher’s wish from their wish list.  Wish lists may be included in their newsletter and/or posted in their classrooms!
  • Participate in the fundraisers.   TONS more information on these under the Helping Glendale tab— check it out! For example: Box Tops for Education, Tyson Project A+ labels and Milk Moola.

Attend PTC meetings.  PTC usually meets the first Tuesday of the month (with a few exceptions) from 6:30-8 p.m. in Glendale’s Media Center.  Please call the school office if you have questions.
