Dear Glencoe Families,
I enjoyed the opportunity to visit with many of you at our recent Open House. I know your children are more important than anything in your lives, and it is always a pleasure for me to see children with their families – to see the smiles and the pride they have when showing you their classrooms and how they spend their time at school. I left school that evening with a sense of community and reminder of the great work the staff does with and for our students, your children. I want to give a shout out to our Passport Raffle Winner, Simone, in Ms. Button’s 3rd Grade Classroom. She received a Glencoe Glass and a $10 Gift Card to Powell’s. I hope she finds a book that allows her to disappear into a marvelous adventure.
As many of you know Glencoe’s Value Statement; “Glencoe is an inclusive community that cares, collaborates and perseveres.” When the staff observe students demonstrating one of these values they may acknowledge students by giving them a Gull Ticket which can be added to our Gull Gallery of tickets. As a school community we earn different opportunities based on the amount of tickets put in the Gallery, a plexi-glass box in the main hallway. Our students have earned music at lunch time so far this year, which will happen on Friday, October 6th and are now working toward a lap-free recess day, which they are very excited about.
On Wednesday we had our second all school assembly and introduced the theme of CARING; one of the words in our value statement. At Glencoe we define caring as kind and respectful to others. During the assembly students read/watched a wonderful book, “What Does It Mean To Be Kind?”. As a follow up, each student is being asked to pay close attention to the random and/or intentional acts of caring in our community. Students will record their noticing and we will display them in the main hallway this month. As adults, if you would also like to name an act of caring that you noticed in our school community feel free to fill out one of our caring speech bubbles and return it to the main office. We’d love to hear from you as well.
We had our first Principal Coffee this week and will continue to do so every other month – see the school calendar on our website. We won’t ever have a set agenda or scheduled topic during this time but it allows for parents/guardians to come together and connect with me and other families, ask questions about the happenings at school, and deepen our understanding of the daily activities and school events in which our students are engaged.
At the end of this month I will host our first Principal/Family Learning Session. Sarah Carlson, our literacy coach, and I will present information on the new reading adoption, Units of Study by Lucy Calkins. If you are interested in learning more about the reading program and literacy instruction occurring in classrooms, please join us on October 25th at 8:10 am.
With a month into the school year, the procedures and daily activities of your child’s classroom should be familiar and comfortable to them by this time in the school year. If your child is still experiencing anxiety or any type of concerns, please contact your child’s teacher. Teachers are open to visiting with you on the phone, by email or to schedule a meeting to talk regarding ideas to help your child or the situation. Please don’t ever hesitate to contact us – a home/school partnership is key to a successful school experience.
Superintendent Guadalupe Guerrero pledged Monday to work in collaboration with ACCESS Academy leaders to find a solution that continues to provide educational services to the unique needs of students “that ACCESS excels at supporting.”
“It’s important to recognize that there may be particular students who may not be served well” in their traditional neighborhood school, Guerrero said during a PPS Board work session on middle schools. “I get it.”
