Fall Carnival

The Glenridge Fall Carnival will take place Friday, October 30, 2015.  We will need many volunteers to help run this event.  If you would like to help please contact thePTO for jobs that are available.

Art Docents

Art docent volunteers are parents, grandparents, friends of students, community members and senior citizen volunteers.  Free training courses are given at Green River Community College by the Interurban Center for the Arts. We also have training at Glenridge. The art docents have learned basic art concepts to teach the children. They have also learned how to present an art project that will reinforce what they have discussed with the children. See this year's art selection here.
There are currently many classrooms without art docents if you would like to help the following are in need:
• Firman • Hogland • Humphreys • Kling • Kuske • McCutchen/Wagoner • McManamon • Schwendemen • Watson • Winbauer • Zografos
If you can help, please contact Brooke Johnson.
