The Glencoe PTA strives to strengthen the family-school-community partnership by providing opportunities to be involved in the education, health, and well being of children in our community. Studies show that parent and public involvement are essential to the successful education of our children.
A first step in this involvement is joining the PTA - it's a great place to share ideas, enthusiasm and expertise. Please attend our monthly PTA meetings.
The Glencoe PTA individual membership fee is $15.00. By joining the Glencoe PTA you will automatically also become a member of the Oregon PTA and National PTA. By adding our individual voices to those of parents of school children across Oregon and the nation, we increase the impact the PTA has when we lobby legislators and government decision-makers to provide our kids with the best and most well-rounded educational experience possible.
Even if you can’t attend PTA meetings or volunteer a lot of time, your membership speaks volumes about your support for providing the best possible education for your child and all his or her peers. We hope all Glencoe moms, dads, grandparents and other family members and friends will consider becoming Glencoe PTA members!
PTA does several fundraisers throughout the year including gift-wrap sale, plant sale, popcorn/coffee/cookie sales, and the Scholastic Book Fair. In addition to these one time a year fundraisers, PTA has fundraisers that make money all year. Restaurant partners happen monthly, AmazonSmile, Benefit Mobile, Escrip and Fred Meyer Rewards are ongoing through the year.
Local restaurants and retail businesses partner with Glencoe monthly; we bring in business on a designated evening and the restaurant donates a percentage of their sales to our PTA. Last year we raised $4,000 for the PTA while enjoying good food and supporting local businesses!
This year we welcome several new restaurants and continue with some Glencoe crowd pleasers. If you have a connection with a local restaurant or business we might partner with, please contact Davida Jordan firstname.lastname@example.org / (503) 756-8225.This year the PTA is focused on fundraising that cost you little or no money. All the funds the PTA raises go directly to support students and staff at Glencoe. Here is how you can help:
Register with Fred Meyer Community Rewards! If you select Glencoe Elementary PTA as your designated non-profit for Fred Meyer’s community rewards, Fred Meyer donates directly to the Glencoe Elementary PTA. This costs you nothing and does not impact any other Fred Meyer rewards. All you need to do is login in to Fred Meyer, go to their community rewards and select “Glencoe Elementary PTA.” If you have done this in the past, please do it again because the non-profit must be selected each year.
Shop with Amazon Smile! Amazon donates .5% of the price of AmazonSmile purchases to the charitable organization you choose. The donation is at no cost to you. All you need to do is select “Glencoe Elementary PTA” as your charitable organization, then start all of your amazon shopping at smile.amazon.com.
Use Benefit mobile app! The Benefit app allows you to buy gift cards for national retailers (everything from GrubHub to Bed Bath & Beyond to the Gap). You get 100% of the gift card purchased, but the retailer donates a percentage back to Glencoe. This is free money for Glencoe and can make a huge difference because these donations can really add up. Think of it for holiday shopping, or just treating yourself to Starbucks. Just download the Benefit app, set up your account and payment method, search "Glencoe Elementary PTA" in the Beneficiaries tab, and then buy a gift card through the app. Benefit Mobile
