Who we are

The GPTO is open to all parents and guardians of Graebner students, and all Graebner teachers and staff. We strive to create an open and inclusive organization, with monthly meetings open to all (childcare is always provided).

Autumn Jacobs, President

During the day, I work as a Graphic Designer /Photographer and strive to be creative outside the office as much as possible. I've been married for almost 3 years and we have a 9 year old daughter who loves to irish dance.

 

When I found the GPTO, I thought this might be fun and could share my skills to benefit my daughter's school. Well I'm onto my fifth year - from Playground Committee Chair, to Secretary and now into my third term as President. I'm looking forward to the 2022-23 school year.

Jenna Wiland, Treasurer

I bring over 20 years of business world experience from my part-time day job helping companies of all sizes with reporting, administration and Federal grant compliance. I look forward to helping the Graebner PTO this year with their decision making and fundraising through timely and useful financial information.  

This is my 12th year with a student attending Graebner Elementary School.  This is my fifth year as a GPTO officer and second as its Treasurer.  I have a 5th grade Graebner Dolphins plus a 7th grader at Bemis and 11th grader at Henry Ford II High School.  My patient husband Brian jokes that PTO is my biggest hobby, supported by my second biggest hobby as a (caffeinated) tea drinker.  

My favorite parts of volunteering here are the joy of students, staff and their families making memories at GPTO events, the friendships I’ve made, and marveling at how participating with GPTO has stretched me to grow in ways I never would have imagined on my own.
