Welcome to the New School Year!

Spring Glen PTA welcomes all staff and families to Spring Glen School. The Executive Board invites you to join us each month at the membership meetings to hear firsthand the enrichment programs, the fabulous activities, and the fundraising efforts. We encourage you to bring new ideas and be involved in your child’s school.

You might be asking yourself, “How can I get involved?” “What if I don’t know anyone?” “I am new to the neighborhood? Who can I talk to?”

I have some answers for you! Send an email to springglenschoolpta@gmail.com. I will connect you to the right person.

We have committees for the following:

  • Fall and Spring Plant Sales
  • Scholastic Book Sales (Fall and Spring)
  • Election Day Bake Sale
  • Conference Raffle Baskets in November (soliciting, creating, selling tickets)
  • School Play (Spring)
  • Spring Into Spring Glen 5K
  • Someone Special Dance in February (planning, decorating and shopping)

All funds that are raised from these events support enrichment programs, Spring Glen’s media center, and the music, art and physical education departments. The upkeep of the playgrounds, Mother Nature’s classroom, teachers’ requests, and families in need of assistance also benefit from the year-round fundraising events. The PTA also budgets for a Hamden High School Scholarship that is presented in May.
Come and meet the board on Thursday, August 31 from 5-7 pm at Spring Glen as we kick off the school year with Food Trucks and music.

Continue to check out our Facebook page and website for up-to-date information.
