PTO Events & Programs
Back to School Bash
Come celebrate the new school year! Our Back to School Bash will be held on our playground on Thursday, August 8 from 5:30 p.m. - 6:30 p.m.
The INVEST Campaign is your opportunity to donate directly to Julia Green Elementary School. INVEST is the primary source of funding for the PTO budget – providing over half of the overall budget each year. This year's campaign will kick off Thursday, August 22. Please join us for the INVEST social on Wednesday, August 21.
The JG Carnival includes carnival games, bounce attractions, a bake sale, crafts and fun! The carnival is a well-loved family and community event and it will be a highlight of fall. Make plans now to join us on Friday, September 27 for this fun, family event!
Grandparents and Special Friends Day is our opportunity to invite those who are close to our students to come into Julia Green and experience our wonderful community. On Friday, October 25, we will open our doors to grandparents and special friends and share with them a short musical performance. They are then invited to spend some time in our classrooms and allow our students to give them a glimpse of life as a Hornet.
Starting on January 24th, Read-a-Thon is an intensive, two-week focus on reading. During Read-a-Thon, students collect money from sponsors who can make contributions based on the number of books or pages a student reads or may donate a lump sum for the student’s reading efforts during Read-a-Thon. While Read-a-Thon is our second largest fundraiser of the year, even more important is the jump we see in our student's reading levels and enthusiasm for literature. As we start the second semester, many of our young hornets show a tremendous amount of growth following this program, and our older hornets also show a spike in reading comprehension. So get ready to curl up with a few good books with your Hornet this winter!
Spring Party is the adults' turn to celebrate! Parents, teachers, and staff alike will all come together to celebrate our love and support of Julia Green. Our Spring Party will be held on March 27th.
Hornet Hustle & Gather on the Green
These events are sure to be the highlight of your spring! Students work hard to complete their own "mini-marathon." Hornets spend the Spring months walking and running to log 25 miles in the weeks leading up to the Hornet Hustle. Then our students come together to complete a one-mile, fun run at school for the final mile of their marathon. Once the race is completed, families grab a blanket and head over to the lawn for a fun family night outdoors at Julia Green! Our Hornet Hustle is scheduled for April 24th.
