If you know of a local business that might be interested in sponsoring the McGlynn team please reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org or Stephanie Tapia on Facebook. Thank you Stephanie for taking the lead on this awesome fundraiser.

Textile Recycle Bin- Do you have old clothing, shoes, or curtains you need to get rid of? Drop off your textiles, whatever the condition, any time in the white bin in the school parking lot marked “McGlynn Elementary.". The PTG gets paid by the pound for whatever is in the bin. Check out our website (www.mcglynnptg.org) for a full list of what’s accepted.
Amazon Smile- Everyone orders from Amazon!! The PTG asks for your support by selecting the McGlynn Elementary Parent Teacher Group by logging on to www.smile.amazon.com. By doing so, Amazon will donate a portion of the purchase price to the McGlynn PTG which in turn will be used to fund fun and enriching activities for our students.
Cultural Appreciation Week and Night- This week is Cultural Appreciation week at the McGlynn Elementary. Check out all the cool activities we have going on to celebrate our diverse community. On Thursday the PTG will be sponsoring our first ever Cultural Appreciation Night. The McGlynn community will be sharing information about our different cultures. The evening will include a display of cultural artifacts, Irish storytelling, and an "Ask me anything" panel with parents from differents from different cultural background. Thank you to all the McGlynn Families who have stepped up to make this evening great. We hope to make this a Mcglynn tradition. Hope to see you tomorrow!
