Pre-pandemic the PTG would raise funds each year to support bring the following projects to the Mcglynn Elementary community. Join us this year in figuring out what we want to do moving forward!
One the PTG's top priorities is to continue to build a strong McGlynn parent community. We have lots of initiatives to move us towards this goal including: a FREE Family Events, building a Parent Directory, and making the PTG more accessible with things like this website.
In previous the PTG has budgeted to spend $15 per student to go on field trips that enrich their educational experience. Students have gone to the Museum of Science, the Acton Discovery Museum, Drumlin Farms and Plymouth Plantation.
IN SCHOOL PRESENTATIONS
The PTG helps to organize and fund presentations in the school. Last year we had Curious Creatures, the Tanglewood Marionettes, and Latin Dancers. We even had George the Magician make an appearance on Fun Day
In June the PTG sponsors Fun Day. This is a great way for the students celebrate a successful school year. Fun Day promotes physical education, team work, and FUN. Our AMAZING gym teacher, Meg Richards, plans a terrific day for the students. The PTG provides support with funds and volunteers.
TEACHER DRIVEN PROJECTS
This year the PTG is piloting a program to encourage our teachers to innovate by giving them small grants towards projects they care about. We have put aside $2000 which we plan to give out in $200 increments to teachers who fill out our short online proposal form. We will be reviewing proposals at General PTG Meetings.
An important part of our mission is appreciating the hard work of our dedicated teachers. We try to do this several ways throughout the school year. At the end of each year the PTG sponsors Teacher Appreciation events. Last year teachers were celebrated for a full week with a breakfast, a chocolate buffet lunch and a sit down luncheon.
