The Fall Carnival is Friday - PTO Update 10-16-16

Glenridge PTO Fall Carnival

Ticket Presales are due Monday, October 17, 2016, make sure to send inorders tomorrow!
The Glenridge Fall Carnival will take place Friday, October 21, 2016.  We will need many volunteers to help run this event.  If you would like to help please contact the PTO for jobs that are available.
Treats are also needed:
  • Cakes, cookies or brownies to be used as cake walk prizes (store bought or homemade is wonderful) can be dropped off at the office October 20th and October 21st
  • Candy to give out as game prizes (Mamba, Regular Tootsie Rolls, Twizzler Licorice, Laffy Taffy, Smarties and Wonka Candy are nut free and would make great contributions) can be left at the office now through October 21st.

Goal Setting Conferences 

Goal Setting Conferences will take place all week, October 24-28, 2016. Please check the date and time for your student’s conference. Students will be released from school at 12:38 p.m. all week. Teachers have been busy assessing students, reviewing student data, and setting goals for each student in reading, writing, and math. With those goals in mind, teachers are also teaching students to set similar goals and will be sharing those plans with parents at conferences. We believe this process will be more meaningful to both you and the students. Setting goals for learning is a natural part of our teaching and learning process and student learning becomes even more meaningful when children and parents are given the opportunity for participation. Teaching students to set goals is also a component of our state learning standards and instructional models. It is also an excellent opportunity to learn the self-evaluation process. Helping our students to understand and achieve their learning goals is one important step in successfully preparing all students for their future.
