Welcome to a new year at Griggs Road Elementary! The PTO is excited about serving the students, faculty, staff, and the families of Griggs this year. The PTO has many activities planned for the 2016-2017 school year including:
Parent and PTO Meetings: TBD
Donation Drives: We will again participate in several educational support programs: Box Tops for Education, Campbell’s Soup labels, My Coke Rewards and Tyson A+ product labels. You will receive detailed instructions and collection dates at the beginning of the school year. Be sure to also pick up information on programs offered by Harris Teeter, Bi-Lo, Food Lion, and Target to see how you can support Griggs while you shop!
Yearbook: The annual Griggs Road yearbook will be on sale this winter. Be sure to reserve a copy for your child! If you have pictures that you would like to contribute to the Griggs Road Yearbook photo pool, please email them to firstname.lastname@example.org (please note that these pictures will be put in the larger collection of photos and may or may not be used). You should send full size pictures if possible. The higher the resolution, the better. Please do not make the pictures smaller for email purposes. Pictures whose resolution is minimized become unusable in a publication such as the yearbook.
