Goal Setting Conferences

Goal Setting Conferences will take place all week, October 22 - 26, 2018. 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.

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. 

Otis Spunkmeyer Fundraiser

Our Fall Fundraiser kicks off this Wednesday! Each year students, parents, and staff come together to raise funds for field trip transportation, RAZ Kids, Accelerated Reader, educational materials used in the classroom and more. This year we are excited to bring back the Otis Spunkmeyer Cookie Collection to Glenridge. A brochure will be coming home showcasing selected food items, cookie dough, brownies, muffins, and loaf cake all priced at $17 each. With the holiday season approaching it's nice to have something in the freezer to be able to prepare on short notice and each sale will help us to reach our fundraising goal. Long distance family and friends will still be able to help with an assortment of goods sold in our online store! Online items start at $7 and can ship to the school for free. Please take a moment to look through the packet when it comes home, register online, and share with family and friends.

Donations are always welcome and can be made with cash or check and left at the office or made online.
