A MESSAGE FROM MS. ELLISON
Dear Glen Grove Families,
I hope this newsletter finds you well and that you are enjoying summer moments as a family! I cannot believe it is August already and we are preparing to embark on a new adventure of learning and laughter at Glen Grove!
The opening of schools this year will be incredibly exciting with the brand-new construction and learning spaces. The construction crews have been working nonstop to ensure that Glen Grove is ready to go. The progress is exciting! (There are some photos at the end of the newsletter to give you a sneak peek of the progress.)
Many of you have shared your eagerness to know your child’s class placement. The district office will email this information on August 11th. Please know that a tremendous amount of teacher work goes into making the classes. They are intentionally balanced to support an optimal learning environment. It is not possible to make classroom switches at this time. Our teachers go above and beyond to create positive learning communities and support new and existing peer relationships. We are confident that it is going to be a great experience for your child!
Speaking of teachers, we are excited to host our school-wide meet and greet on August 22nd at 2:00 pm. Save the date! This is a great opportunity to meet your child’s teacher and connect with the classroom community ahead of time. Our fabulous Westbrook/Glen Grove PTA will be providing popsicles on the playground after the meet and greet at 2:30. This will be another awesome opportunity to build community and connect!
I know the start of the year brings lots of excitement and energy. Please do not hesitate to reach out if you have any questions, comments, or concerns about the year. I am committed to serving our students, teachers, and families and making this year at Glen Grove the best year ever!
