Greenville Elementary School would like to give a
 HUGE Shout-Out to our Amazing PTA!

The Parent Teacher Association (PTA) at Greenville Elementary is a fundamental part of our school culture, and they are responsible for a great number of activities for our students and staff throughout the school year.

The Greenville Elementary PTA consists of an executive board (president, vice president, treasurer, secretary), building administrators, teachers, and parents. The membership drive happens every fall with a kick-off at the annual Elementary Open House event in August. The cost to be a member is $5.00/yr. The PTA meets the first Tuesday of each month at the elementary school. Meetings are at 6:00pm and last approximately one hour. The typical Greenville PTA meeting consist of a treasurer’s report, which lists all of the financial activity that has happened in the month prior; a review of current grant requests from teachers; discussions and approvals for activities for the coming month; and any miscellaneous new business that may come about.

 Greenville Elementary PTA Executive Board:
 President: Harlee Cross
 Vice President: Shelley Miller
 Treasurer: Whitney Arnett
 Secretary: Bri Meyer
The Greenville Elementary PTA is responsible for so many of our classroom activities and teacher/student resources that impact our students every day. They also sponsor a number of family events throughout the school year. Each fall, the entire building participates in the PTA Fall Fundraiser.
