2019-20 PTO Meeting Dates And Minutes

Our meetings are open to everyone. The Grissom Board attends every meeting and leads a round table discussion of the business and topics for that quarter. Please consider joining us in making the decisions that affect your children and their school.

Hot Lunch / Pizza Day / Hot Dog Day /Treat Day

Our PTO sponsors OPTIONAL food fundraising programs throughout the school year. The deadline to order for all PTO Food programs for February through May is Wednesday, January 8th. After the deadline date, the system will be closed, and no further orders can be accepted. Ordering is on-line only.


The PTO has several fundraisers during the year. Marcus Theatre Tickets, Taffy Apple Sale, and Grissom Spiritwear are just a few. With our profits, we can provide our students and school many “extras” that might not be possible without your help.  Participation in these events is greatly appreciated.
