The Glacier Ridge Elementary Parent Teacher Organization (PTO) is a nonprofit volunteer organization whose purpose is to aid the students and staff by providing support for educational and social needs, to promote open communication between administration, teachers, and parents and to encourage GRE school spirit and pride.
Our mission is to align resources with the vision and direction of the school to enrich the learning environment while empowering parents, teachers and students for success.
