Welcome to Greencastle PTA!  We are parents, teachers and staff, who advocate for and support education for students at Greencastle Elementary School in Silver Spring, MD.  Welcome.
 

Announcements                

Tuesday, Nov. 7: PTA Potluck and Mixer: Focus on Advocacy! 

Please join us for a PTA Potluck and Mixer where the topic will be advocacy – giving voice to our wishes for our school community. PTA will provide a main dish. Please bring a store-bought side or dessert. Potluck dinner will be from 7 to 7:30 and the Mixer will begin at 7:30. Childcare will be provided after dinner starting at 7:30. We will have icebreaker activities to learn more about each other, followed by updates on the county’s Capital Improvement Plan and how it affects Greencastle. We will also discuss what our priorities are in advocating for our school community by breaking out into groups to discuss issues in greater detail.


PTA Meetings are open to all families and staff, not just PTA members. Please join us!
