  • Great way for Dad's to make a presence at PGE!
  • Fun activities and events throughout the year!
  • Dad's Club Pizza Night Kick-Off Sept 7, 2018
  • CHS Homecoming Parade Float- Date TBD

PTA is usually thought of as a Mom's Club... but the Dad's Club at Park Glen Elementary is wanting to change that.  Father's are discovering how important it is to actively participate in their children's educations.  According to a 1997 study by the National Center for Education Statistics, children do better in school when their fathers are involved by earning higher grades and enjoying school more.  The Park Glen PTA celebrates having Dad's involved with fun events that are Dad's and Kid's only!  Mad Science Night, Pizza Night and other events showcase how PGE DAD's ROCK!

ENVIRONMENTAL

The Environmental program is an educational tool for the school community, teaching the kids about the 3 R’s (Reduce – Reuse – Recycle), while helping the environment and our community.
