5th Grade V. Teachers Basketball Game- The PTG is working with 5th grade parents and teachers on plans to celebrate our 5th graders transition to Middle School. It's a great school-wide event! All proceeds from the event go to fund the PTG's Teacher-Driven Projects program. This program gives teachers small grants to be innovative in their classrooms and around the school.
Teacher Appreciation Week- Teacher Appreciation Week will be May 6th-10th this year. We are working on a lot of great ideas for letting the McGlynn Teachers and staff know how much we appreciate all the work they do.

Fun Day- Fun Day is scheduled for Friday, June 7th. Fun Day is the McGlynn's version of field day. There is a bunch of outdoor activities, including bouncy houses, a dunk tank, and balloon toss. We are going to need a lot of parent volunteers to make this day happen! If you are interested in volunteering, please make sure you have a CORI on file with the school.
