    We acknowledge that Glencoe Elementary sits upon traditional land of  the Clackamas, Cowlitz, Chinook and other tribes, some of which are now in the  Confederated Tribes of the Grand Ronde. We want to respect and honor them by taking care of this land. 

    Friendly Reminders:
    * Library Check-out days are Mondays. Remember to bring your school library books back by Monday!
    * Thanks for remembering to return your COVID tests on Tuesdays.
    * Bring your charged Chromebook and headphones/earbuds daily. Thanks for charging them at home overnight.
    * This quarter ends on Thursday, Jan. 27. Students must have all their work turned in by that date to get an evaluation.
    * Spirit Day: Thursday, Jan 27. "Put a bird on it."
    * No School on Friday, and no school on Monday. Both these days are work days for teachers, but a long weekend for students.

    What were we doing...
    (Webpage is updated daily, over lunch time)

    Math: we worked with multiplying large numbers today, did P. 237-240 in our Student Book.
    About Math Facts: If your child is frustrated, please consider practicing their basic multiplication facts with them (flash cards, oral practicing, etc.), so they can memorize their math facts.
    Language Arts: We  worked more on the "Westward Expansion" slideshow presentations. All presentations need to be ready to show on Wednesday.
    Words their Way: We did Lexia today, and kids got their new list of words to work with.
    Science/Health: in our Land & Water unit, we're thinking of ways to mitigate flooding, but now focusing on our classroom sand-tables.
    Social Studies: exploring the U.S. Westward Expansion, making a slideshow presentation of our research

    --About Me--

    My goal is to bring a slice of the outside world to my students, and help them move forward in their educational advancement. In more than three decades of working in Education, I taught in Minnesota, Oregon, Africa and Central America before coming to Glencoe. This school has a great staff, students who are generally self-motivated to learn, and many supportive parents concerned with student progress and achievement. I taught nearly 20years in 4th grade, moved up to 5th grade one year, and then moved back to 4th grade.

    I have a Master's of Arts in Teaching degree from Willamette University and a Bachelor of Arts degree from OSU. I enjoy reading, music (guitar, piano and drums) and writing. I have published a fantasy trilogy (The Tarra Tales), which can be found in our school library. My wife is a principal for North Clackamas School District, and we have three children: 1 getting his PhD, 1 working for Doc Martins in their executive office, and 1 in the U. of O. Honors College.
