Forest Glen PTO
We are also looking for a few positions for the 2017-18 school year. If you are interested in being the chairperson for Fundraising or Spring Carnival, or PTO Treasurer, please contact Brianna Knox.
The PTO would like to thank the 62 families who have donated almost $3800 in the Direct Donation fundraiser. If you were intending to donate but have forgotten, please know that donations are accepted throughout the year. Please mark your donation for the direct donation fundraiser and a receipt for tax purposes will be sent back to you through your student. Thank you for supporting all the students at Forest Glen!
In response to parent input several years ago, the PTO decided to utilize DIRECTION DONATION fundraising rather than selling and distributing multiple types of products. A DIRECT DONATION FUNDRAISER provides a stress and hassle free way to donate to help the school provide enrichment activities for each and every student.
Please understand that with direct donations, 100% of your money stays in the school. With most fundraisers, we are lucky if 40% of what you spend on product remains with Forest Glen. This year we have scheduled Kwik Trip card sales, Third Thursday business support nights, Square One Art sales, a Seroogy’s Easter candy sale, and Spring Carnival in addition to the Direct Donation Drive.
We appreciate all you do to support the school and your children’s learning!
Third Thursday Fundraising
Forest Glen PTO has partnered with several area businesses to bring you regularly scheduled fundraising opportunities throughout the year. On the third Thursday of each month, a local business has offered to support Forest Glen with a fundraising event. When you order from that month’s business, mention Forest Glen or bring in the flyer we’ll send home and a portion of the proceeds will be donated to Forest Glen.
Please note: Some businesses simply ask that you mention the Forest Glen fundraiser when ordering, and tracking of the fundraiser will be done with their own system. Other businesses ask that you supply the Forest Glen Fundraiser “ticket” which will be sent home early the week of the fundraiser. This preference makes tracking the fundraiser easier for those businesses. Please honor the requests of our gracious fundraising partners by supplying the “ticket” when requested. Thank you!

Ever wonder who makes decisions on school fundraisers? Who decides when the Book Fairs are? Who makes school Family Nights happen? It all comes from the parents involved in PTO! Become involved in your child's school and see what PTO is all about! Parent input is greatly appreciated and needed to turn ideas into reality. Please join us!
PTO dates for 2017-2018 school year: September 12, October 3, November 7, January 9, February 6, March 6, April 3, May 1
