  • Dear Glencoe Families,


    November was a busy month with many interruptions to our school calendar.  Although it can be quite tempting to take advantage of the days of no-school in November and leave town, I want to thank so many of you for attending Parent-Teacher Conferences.  We had a very strong turn-out.  Our next grading period ends in late-January.  If you have questions or concerns about your child’s performance, please don’t wait until the next grading period to connect with your child’s teacher.  All staff are available by phone or email at any time. 

    I am so grateful for the time and energy our families dedicate to our school community.  The Scholastic Book Fair and Craft Fair could not happen without the hard work of our parents and community members. Both of these events happened during Parent-Teacher Conference week and are a great benefit to our school.  The book fair helped raise money for our school’s Foundation and the Craft Fair donated money to our PTA this year.  THANK YOU!

    This past week we had our first of three Courageous Conversations for Parents.  I was so honored to spend time with families from the Glencoe/Mt. Tabor community talking about our personal experiences around race and how race impacts our schools and greater communities.  This is an entirely parent-led event and I want to thank our Parent Equity Committee for leading us in such a brave endeavor.  If you did not have an opportunity to join us for this first Courageous Conversations I would like to invite you to attend our next one on January 25th at 5:30.  Dinner and day care is provided. 

    By the time you receive this newsletter we will only have two full weeks with students before we break for winter vacation.  I am looking forward to the time with students without any interruptions to the next two school weeks.  I have two scheduled opportunities to connect with families before winter break; the PTA/Foundation meeting this Tuesday, 12/5 at 6:30 pm in the library and a Principal’s Coffee on Thursday morning at 8:10 in the cafeteria.  The coffee is just an informal opportunity for me to connect with families, answer questions and hear from you.  I hope to see you!
