Weekly Updates May 20th

Our final PTG General Meeting of the school year will be THIS THURSDAY, May 23rd. Check out the agenda. During this meeting, we will review what we've done this year, vote on a budget for next year, and elect two treasurers and a secretary to the executive board. We have FREE CHILDCARE to make it easier for parents to attend.


Check out the minutes from our April 24th Meeting.


Communications


PTG Recruitment- The PTG is recruiting for the next year. We currently have both Treasurer and Secretary positions open for the 2019-2020 school year and will hold an election at our May 23rd meeting. If being on the executive board seems like too much, there are all kinds of ways to contribute to our community. Check out all the roles needed to make the work of the PTG happen in the McGlynn PTG Volunteer Positions 2019-2020 descriptions. If you have a few extra hours a month and want help us bring enrichment and community to the McGlynn Elementary School, please contact Bailey Schendell (execboard@mcglynnptg.org).


End of the Year Dates- With the last day of school set for June 13th, the dates for end of the year activities keep shifting. We are continuously updating our McGlynn PTG 2018-2019 Schedule.

Community Engagement


School Committee Presentation- Each year, organizations that support our schools are required to present on their activities to the School Committee. Tonight May 20th, the city PTOs/PTG will present together on our work as a group and in our individual schools. We will each present our achievements as well as an issue we would like addressed by the School Committee. The McGlynn will ask the School Committee to look at the rising cost of school buses for field trips. Other issues that will be raised include ongoing building maintenance issues, need for additional technology, and a request for additional librarians.


5th Grade Night at the McGlynn- Friday, May 10th, the 5th grade had a special night with their teachers. They had pizza and played games. Check out the photo booth from the event in this google album.

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. CORI must be completed every year. You can download a CORI Form and send it with a copy of your photo ID in your child's communications folder.
