PTO Information

Ward Grundy Elementary PTO's mission is to support the education of the children at Ward Grundy Elementary by fostering relationships among the school, parents, and teachers.  Every Grundy parent is automatically a PTO member.  In order to be successful in our mission, we need parent involvement.  There are numerous opportunities at Grundy for parents to show their support.

families are needed to help distribute prizes and candy as part of our major fundraiser.
