  • Dear Glencoe Families,

    I hope this past week treated you well and you were able to enjoy some time with your kiddo(s) who were off from school. 

    Now that we are officially into the spring season, I hope we start to see more sunshine and dry weather. Our annual Run for the Arts is scheduled for Friday, April 27th.   Students will receive their pledge sheets THIS Wednesday and can start collecting pledges (no money yet, just the promise to pay).  Last year we ran on our “rain date”, had to change the run route and still ended up running in the rain. We are hoping for a drier day AND lots of volunteers!!  Please look for your child’s pledge form in their backpack so they can get started collecting pledges right away.

    We have a few retirements occurring at the end of this year.  Mrs. EFB, Mrs. Schneider-Barnes and Mr. Tibbetts will be retiring leaving us with some open positions at Glencoe for the 2018-19 school year.  We will be conducting interviews for these open positions after next week and I will let you know once we have completed the hiring process.  As you know, we received additional FTE for next year’s PE program.  Thankfully, I was able to move Mrs. Lile into our full-time position and we will have an experienced PE teacher, Ms. Millie Layman, joining us for the additional 1 day a week from Creative Science.

    Over the next two months, students in grades 3-5 will begin the Smarter Balanced State Assessments in reading and math (& science for 5th grade).  You should hear from your child’s classroom teacher as to the exact dates/times the class will be engaged in the assessments.  If you wish to opt out of this testing situation, you can pick up an opt-out form in the main office.  All forms need to be completed and submitted before Friday, April 13th.  Feel free to direct any testing questions to your child’s teacher, Mary Megivern, substitute school counselor or me. 


    Happy Spring!

    Glencoe Principal
