DAD'S CLUB

  • 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
  • Mad Science Night
  • CHS Homecoming Parade Float

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

  • Being a part of the GREEN TEAM, students participate in growing and maintaining school garden during class times
  • Promotes and provides local and global environmental awareness

America is in the midst of one of the most profound and rapid societal shifts in history. Today's generation of children is the first to grow up indoors. Their plugged-in lives are largely devoid of exploring the natural world and we are just beginning to understand the ramifications of their virtual world.

This movement indoors is not benign; there are costs to the health of our children: attention difficulties, hyperactivity, childhood obesity, diminished use of senses, disconnect from things that are real. Additionally, if children are detached from nature, how will they learn about, understand, and value nature? How will the next generation care about the land and be stewards of its resources?

The PGE PTA Environmental Program is dedicated to making our children aware of our local and global environments so that they can become aware of the incredible importance of protecting them for their future and beyond.
