Griffin Fund

We Are Back! Back to in-person learning. Back to our beloved Glenview building. Back and stronger than ever. We are back together and have much for which to be grateful.

The Griffin Fund is our first and largest fundraiser each year. Together, we must raise $175,000 between Thursday, October 21st, and Friday, October 29th.  Please donate whatever amount feels right to you (any amount is appreciated). To reach our goal, we recommend $600 per student. We are budgeted to use some of our bank reserves to keep our goals reasonable, despite significant additional expenses due to COVID measures, the move, and a new  building.

This campaign is our only direct request to families. We fundraise because we do not receive enough money from the district to ensure every child receives an enriching educational experience. The PTA funds key academic programs and enrichment activities like: Reading Intervention, PE, Science Fair, Music, and Library. The PTA also pays for a range of events including Fall Festival and Haunted House, Black History Month, Family Pride, and Disability Awareness. Finally, money raised funds teacher supplies, kindergarten aides, an academic mentor, noon supervisor, and two counseling interns, among much more!

Help us reach our goal of $175,000!
