Dear Parents and Students,
I am thrilled to welcome you back for the 2017-2018 year at Glenwood Elementary School!
Student success is the goal of every staff member at Glenwood Elementary School. We believe with our structure and dedication to high quality, research-based best practices, every student will learn to full their potential. We are prepared to offer time and support as needed. I ask for your support and participation in this effort by sending your child to school every day, encouraging him/her to read for pleasure at least 30 minutes every night, monitoring homework and progress, and asking your child to share what they learned at school each day.
Finally, I urge you to become involved at Glenwood! All parents are considered members of PTO. There are literally hundreds of ways to be involved in PTO and volunteering activities in both big and small ways depending on the amount of time you have. There are also many opportunities to help in the classroom, with field trips, and attend some or all of the many school events. We send home important information about events each week in student’s burgundy folders. From time to time we must send home important information with students that may not make it to their folders, so it is a good idea to check backpacks daily. Other places for news and information include the school website, marquee, bulletin boards and flyer rack near the office. We also make automated or personal phone calls to all parents so it is important we have current phone numbers.
The staff and administration are eager to welcoming you to another wonderful year!
Principal, Glenwood Elementary School
