What does the HSA do for Gladwyne Elementary School?
The HSA enriches our community…
…by coordinating many after school clubs like Drama, Foreign Language, Mad Science, Chess, Coding, Soccer, Basketball and more!
…by bringing educational programs like Author Visits, Art Goes to School, school assemblies, and more!
…by building community through many parent and family social events, grade level socials, and so much more!
…by raising funds for capital expenditures through our biennial auction for laptops, Smart Boards, recess equipment, and more!
...by bringing community service opportunities to our school like Lucy Belle’s Rainbow (we collect art supplies for children at CHOP), Blankenburg (we hold a hat, coat & mitten drive for our sister school in Philadelphia), and so many more!

Thank you for making our school a wonderful place to nurture our children's minds and spirits.
