    Growing Greenwood

    The funds raised each year by the Greenwood PTA immediately impact the lives of kids and families in our community. We fund many important programs such as: artists-in-residence (instrumental and vocal music, dance instruction), tutoring, enrichment, after-school clubs, the Advanced Learning Opportunities program (ALO), teacher grants and allowances, the Greenwood School Garden, a new playground in 2012 and family support services for families in need. Every dollar raised goes to enhance the educational experience of every child at Greenwood. Our fundraising efforts for the 2016-17 school year include:

    JOG-A-THON (JAT): OCTOBER 20, 2017

    This active event happens every fall. It gives the children an opportunity to contribute to fundraising for their school through gathering pledges or donations for their run. Also, the event encourages “active” kids as everyone wants to see how many laps they can complete. It’s an exciting day and fun for everyone as there are typically many parents present to cheer for the kids. Click here for more information on the Jog-a-Thon.

    AUCTION: COMING AGAIN IN 2019!

    GREENWOOD GEAR: ONGOING

    Outfit yourself and your family in a bright new Greenwood t-shirt or sweatshirt. Proceeds benefit the school. Apparel is available for sale via the PTA at many school events throughout the year. Click here for an order form.

    EASY WAYS TO EARN MONEY FOR OUR SCHOOL EVERY DAY

    Instructions for AmazonSmile, Ballard Market receipt program and Scrip here. Video "how-to" here.

    • Set "Greenwood PTA" as your charitable organization at Fred Meyer/QFC AND AmazonSmile. These organizations make donations to Greenwood based on the spending of the connected accounts.

    • Buy gift cards for 250+ local and national businesses (our enrollment code is 3AB7D9L835494).

    • Buy Fred Meyer/QFC gift cards directly from the PTA and 5% of the value is donated to the school. Look for an order form in the WeeBee or email scrip@greenwoodpta.org to order cards. The cards will be delivered via KidMail.

    • Shop PCC and Earn Money for Greenwood! When you purchase PCC giftcards through Greenwood, 5% of the purchase price and 5% of additions to the card is donated to Greenwood. Place your order here: http://goo.gl/forms/aKRY1P8WYW

    NOTE: We need to purchase PCC cards in $500 batches, so orders will not be filled until we reach that amount. PCC cards will be sent home as we reach the $500 milestone.

    A great deal of effort goes into coordinating our fundraisers, but with many wonderfully involved parents, the load becomes much lighter. In fact, getting involved and meeting other parents makes raising money for our kids and our great school fun! There are many opportunities to volunteer for, both large and small. Please let us know if you have any questions or would like to join us!
