The 2009-10 academic year is now a memory, but it also provides the chance for PTAs to review the months with appreciation for the support and hard work that took place.
At Glendale High School, the PTSA has announced its gift to the school thanks to sales of concessions during football season and generous donations from members throughout the year. About $11,000 was available at the school year's end to benefit Glendale High students through four avenues. A PTA gift for $2,500 will benefit publication of the student newspaper, The Explosion, while $1,500 is going toward the Fall Pep Rally to kick off the semester and start of football season.
In addition, $1,000 is restricted toward the school's Student Welfare Fund which assists students wishing to participate in academic, sports, technology or arts programs. Finally, $6,000 is earmarked for Teacher Micro-Grants intended to enhance the academic experience of students at the school.
