Welcome to 2019-2020

We hope you are enjoying your summer break.

For those of you who are new to the Greene Middle School community – Welcome! For those of you returning, Welcome Back!

This website is hosted by the Greene Middle School PTA. The PTA’s mission is to build the school and community that we want for our children. Together, we make a difference for them.

The Google calendar to the right lists both the school’s and PTA’s activities, which begin on August 8th (for 6th graders) and 9th (for 7th and 8th graders). PTA and staff members will be on hand to answer questions you may have.

Are you interested in being more involved with the school and the PTA this school year? We have 2 Board positions open: Secretary and Parliamentarian – both are individual contributor roles, requiring a few hours to attend our monthly PTA/Staff meeting. If you are interested or have questions, please email Valerie Rainey: greenemiddle.pta@gmail.com.

THANK YOU!

Dear Greene Families,

It has been another wonderful year of collaboration between us to create a great learning environment at Greene. Thank you for your support and contributions. We are so grateful and blessed to have parents like you in our community. 

Overview of the School Year 2018-2019

Your PTA contributions supported every Greene teacher with a $500 max. supplies grant. Teachers used your PTA funding to purchase classroom devices and supplies which directly benefitted our children’s education and development. Items included books, magazine subscriptions, headphones with microphones, supplies for art, music, science, and more!  

In addition, your PTA contributions supported our community-building and student-enrichment events such as Jaguar Journey, Bike Safety Fair, Back to School Social, Cotillion Dance, Lively Arts, Just Parties Kick-Off, International Fair, Science Fair, Day of Service, Skating Nights, Parent Education & Parents Networks, 8th Grade Promotion Party, and more!

Looking ahead to 2019-2020

At the end of this school year, the Greene PTA Board examined the PTA budget and the list of school and PTA programs for next year.  We have decided to keep our Annual Donation Ask the same for next year: $300 per student. Please join us in our mission to build the school and community that we want for our children. Together, we make a difference for them.

Over the summer, the Greene PTA will refresh this website to provide up-to-date information about our programs and events. Please come back August 1st to check out what is new!
