    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 2018-19 school year include:

    JOG-A-THON (JAT): 

    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. More information on the Jog-a-Thon.

    AUCTION 2019:

    Thank you to the Platinum Sponsors of the Greenwood Elementary School Auction 2019, Bear Mountain Capital, Inc. & Oasis Float Spa!

    Bear Mountain Oasis


    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. Order form.


    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!
