Hello, Glenoaks Families!
Wow! What a carnival! I would like to thank everyone in the Glenoaks Elementary School Foundation in addition to anyone else who helped put on this event! Yes, we made money for the foundation which will in turn invest in something that will benefit all of our students, but that carnival was also a complete blast! What a great evening it was, but I'm still waiting to completely dry out. A lot of you had better aim than I'd expected...
This Wednesday is the 2017 Walktober event! Our district participates in this international event to help promote the idea of walking instead of driving to school! We will have groups of people walking from three separate locations: Glenoaks Park, the Self Realization Fellowship Temple at 2146 E. Chevy Chase and the Adventist Book Center at 1501 E. Chevy Chase across from the hospital. Walking will start from each of those locations at 8:10 in the morning, and we will all meet at school where we will have a fun gathering out in front with the Glendale Fire Department. Coffee will be available for adults and treats will be provided for all who participate in this walk to school event!
We are bringing the boxtop fundraiser back! Be sure to bring in those box top coupons you'll find on boxes of food and other items! Each one of those is 10 cents for our school - it's such an easy fundraiser! In addition, we will be having competitions to see which classes can bring in the most! So don't recycle them - bring them to school!
There are are few events coming up I want to be sure you know about. The first of these is the Reflections award ceremony on Thursday, October 12th. This will be the evening when we honor all the students who participated in the PTA Reflections event this year. I saw some very amazing creations put together by our students! Be sure not to miss this event!
On Monday, October 16th we will have a Parent Night where you will be able to learn about PBIS and enVision - our new district math program! You will hear more about this event next week, but be sure to set that evening aside for this adults only evening.
Each year we hold a few movie nights that have always been put on by the 6th grade committee to help support events throughout the year. The first of these movie nights will be on Friday, October 20th. The movie has not been selected yet, but I wanted you to be able to set the evening aside. It's always a very fun community event!
Alright, families in Mr. Glandian's class - it's your turn this week to help staff the morning drop-off valet! You have some tough competition because Mrs. Nicoll's class had several people out in front of the school and in the back drop off each morning last week...and the drop off was more efficient than ever! Thank you for helping to keep our students safe!
That's all for announcements, so now it's time for our question of the week: The United States Government is divided into three separate branches in order to maintain a balance of power. What is the name of each of those branches? Get your answer written on a piece of paper along with your name and room number, and bring it down to the office.
Well that's all I've got, so as always I'd like to remind you all: Don't just fly...SOAR!
