Community Partners


Our Community Partners are strong supporters of various areas of the school.  Without them, our students would not have many of the wonderful opportunities and experiences that they receive.

Grand Piano for the Greely Center for the Arts

We are raising money to purchase a piano for the GCA and are 82% of the way there! Can you help us close the gap? Still needed: $9417.50 by March 15. Follow these links for: MORE INFORMATION or TO PLEDGE.

Mabel I. Wilson Movie Night!

Greely PTO will be showing The Lion King at MIW on Friday March 6 in the multi-purpose room.  Doors open at 6 pm and movie starts at 6:15. Free popcorn and water will be served. Families are encouraged to bring their water bottles to cut down on spills and be friendly to the environment.  Children need to be accompanied by an adult and are encouraged to wear cozy clothing and bring their blankets! For more information visit greelypto.org/events.

Earn Cash for Our School!

The Box Top program is slowly eliminating clippable Box Tops and moving toward electronic collection via the Box Tops mobile app. Please continue to help us earn money for our Greely PTO enrichment activities by downloading the app and scanning your grocery receipts. It's even easier than clipping and saving the Box Tops, and the money goes just as far! See flyer for details, or just look for "Box Tops for Education" in the app store.

(Please note: there are still clippable Box Tops on some products as they haven't yet been completely eliminated. Please continue to save these - we'll have another challenge at the end of the school year!) FMI click HERE.

Greely PTO Meet & Greet

Are you interested in getting more involved in the school community? Do you enjoy being a part of making things happen? We would love to meet you on Tuesday March 10th from 6-7 pm at our casual Meet & Greet in the MIW Library.  Here you will meet current board members, learn about the various board positions and ways you can be involved next year. For more information contact greelypto51@gmail.com.
