Last month the PTO hosted our first ever Paint Nite to rave reviews. A big thank you to Brignole Vineyards for graciously donating their beautiful space for the event and to our instructor, Andrea Reilly, for sharing her talent and inspiring our participants to find their inner artists. Due to the popularity of the event we are planning another paint nite for sometime this spring. Stay tuned to the PTO Facebook page (facebook.com/granbyctpto/) for event details and registration information.
We’d also like to thank the PTO STEAM Committees at Kelly Lane and Wells Road for hosting a Family Coding Night and Family STEAM Night, respectively, last month. Both events were well attended, with students and families alike participating in fun activities designed to challenge their scientific and creative capabilities. Our thanks also go out to our PTO Family Activities Committee that partnered with the Granby Recreation Department to host a Dr. Seuss-themed photo booth at the town’s annual Green Eggs and Ham Breakfast.
As a reminder, Wells Road will be holding Granby Day on May 17 to help foster a sense of community connection and pride. Students and teachers are encouraged to wear Granby clothing on these dates. Please check out our awesome selection of Granby merchandise on our website under the store tab, granbypto.org/content.asp?PageID=6. A portion of each sale helps to support all of the programming and activities sponsored by the PTO.
Finally, please mark your calendars for the final PTO event of the year, Family Movie Night at Salmon Brook Park on Saturday, June 8. We will be partnering with the Granby Recreation Department to provide a fun, free evening for families to come out and enjoy a showing of Hotel Transylvania 3: Summer Vacation Under the Stars (thanks to all who voted for their favorite movie choice on our FB poll). We will also be working with Scholastic to offer a Cruise into Summer Reading book fair during movie night. Stay tuned to the PTO Facebook page for details.
The PTO Executive Board has begun planning for the 2019-20 school year.

The PTO also anticipates having several open committee chair and committee member positions for next school year. To learn more about vacant positions, please visit our PTO website and/or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
