Big Kahuna Fundraiser

We are so thankful for all of your hard work on this fundraiser! A big THANK YOU to all of you for supporting your students, the PTO, and Glenridge in our fundraising efforts. Because of you, we will be able to continue to support many Glenridge PTO programs.
More information will be coming home about prizes and deliveries in November.

Goal Setting Conferences 

Goal Setting Conferences will take place all week, October 23 - 27, 2017. Please check the date and time for your student’s conference. Students will be released from school at 12:55 pm 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.
