Where do your PTA Fundraising dollars go?
Over the past few years, our focus has been to raise money to improve our playground area.
In the spring of 2015, PTA was able to contribute $12,000 towards a new playground structure*. In 2016, PTA was able to further improve our school grounds by donating about $10,000 for new tables and benches.
*Playground structure was a joint venture project with GESF.
Here is a list of other items the PTA has gifted in the last couple of years due to our fundraising efforts:
- Student Assemblies
Emergency Preparedness Supplies-Walkie Talkies
Earthquake Emergency Buckets for Classrooms
Laminator for Teacher’s Workroom
Sound System for Events
Pop Up Tents
Website Maintenance and Webmaster Fees

This is the PTA's biggest fundraiser of the year! No chocolate sales this year! For 2018, the PTA partnered with Square 1 Art. Students will create artwork that then can be purchased from a catalog of goods featuring their artistic talents.
Spirit Gear Ongoing
Every Friday is Glenoaks Spirit Day. Our school color is Green. We wear Glenoaks Spirit Wear or anything green to show our spirit on Fridays. Glenoaks t-shirts/ sweats are recommended to wear on Field Trips--It's easy to spot the green shirt with Rocky, our school mascot!
