2020-2021 Wrap Up

As we wrap up the 2020-2021 school year, the PTA thanks the many parents who supported Greene during this crazy year. THANK YOU!
2020-2021 Volunteer Hours:700!It’s difficult to imagine that parents volunteered 700 hours of their time in this very strange year – but we reviewed all of the occasions when we asked parents to step forward, we think the number actually seems a little low. We did a lot together!
