Upcoming PTO Events
Cheers & Tears Breakfast
Come join other Garlough parents on the 1st day of school for coffee and pastries after dropping your students off to connect with one another. Some of us are crying, teary-eyed, and blue. Some of us are cheering, “I’m glad the summer’s through!”
Come join other Garlough parents and teachers to hear about ways the PTO is supporting Garlough, hear about upcoming activities, and learn about ways you can connect with events and actives at school or in your student's classroom.
