Greenbelt Elementary School – Lil’ Dan Celdran

Welcome from the Greenbelt Elementary Parent Teacher Association (GES-PTA)!  We hope you consider joining us at one of our regular meetings (first Tuesday of each month during the school year.)

Mission Statement

The purpose of the Greenbelt Elementary School PTA is to:

  1. Promote activities that enhance the joy and well-being of GES students and staff in a way that complements and enriches the learning environment;
  2. Advocate on behalf of students, staff and the school;
  3. Build community within the school, and enhance the relationship among the school, parents, and the wider community;
  4. Encourage the community’s investment of time, energy and money into Greenbelt’s public schools.


PTA meetings are held on the first Tuesday of most months, 7-8:30pm in the Media Center.

Free child care is available in the gym.


GES families are encouraged to become involved with the PTA, and there are many opportunities available:

  • Running and helping with the special events during the year, including the Labor Day Book Sale, our biggest fundraiser; Rafael’s Race; Scholastic Book Fairs; Spring Fair; and Multicultural Night
  • Helping with hospitality for staff and teacher appreciation throughout the year and during Staff and Teacher Appreciation week.
  • Maintaining and updating school bulletin boards, the sign outside the school, and this web page
  • Organizing collection of Box Tops for Education… and more!

Let’s get ready for the 2017-2018 school year!

The PTA is excited to welcome new and returning families to Greenbelt Elementary!  Stay tuned for updates on important events and exciting opportunities to get involved!

Right now, we’re organizing our annual Labor Day Book Sale!  We’re looking for donations and volunteers, and, of course, for a great turnout at the Labor Day Festival!

Other volunteering opportunities are coming up, too, so become a member, get connected, and join us at our first meeting on October 3, 2017!  We’re looking forward to a great year!

2016-2017 Board Slate and Proposed Budget

Dear Parents,

As we move towards the 2016-2017 school year, we are finalizing the budget and cementing a new prospective board team.

The proposed budget is available for review here. This budget will be put to a vote at the May 3rd PTA meeting.

The following people have indicated that they are willing to serve on next year’s PTA board:

President: Jacqueline Lilly
1st VP: Amy Knesel
2nd VP: Piri Jenkins
Treasurer: Jeff Hunt
Secretary: Andrea McClelland

We will vote on next year’s board and budget at the May PTA meeting (May 3rd, 7 pm
in the Media Center – free childcare is provided). Nominations can occur from the floor so if you’re still interested in serving, it’s not yet too late to volunteer.

If you have any questions about the nomination process or the duties of
the officers, feel free to contact any members of this year’s
nominations committee.
