The Groveland Park Elementary PTO consists of parents, staff, and community members who work collaboratively to support the school. The purpose of the PTO is to build a strong community that fosters the most optimal educational environment possible.
The fine arts are important at Groveland! Each grade level enjoys a different art enrichment during the school year. Some examples this year will include the MacPhail Center for Music for PreK, ArtiCulture for grade K, COMPAS Artist Shakun Mehashwari for grades 1-2, Musician Ross Sutter for grade 3, a COMPAS Residency for grade 4 and Northern Clay and African Drumming with Brother Ghana for grade 5. Minnesota art standards are incorporated into the experiences. Each of the art experiences have been made possible through the genrousity of the Groveland community. The PTO has worked to provide each grade level with special opportunities.
Ms. Lightner brings a wealth of experience in helping all students feel represented and accepted for who they are. She has served as a school social worker and Dean of Students at Valley View Elementary School in Bloomington Public Schools, and most recently, as assistant principal for Battle Creek Elementary School.
