Meet Our New PE Teacher!

Hello, my name is Mr. Steele! I have been teaching PE for 6 years and come to Rockbrook and Prairie Lane from All Saints Catholic School here in Omaha. My wife Lindsey and I got married last May, and we live here in District 66. I am extremely excited to get to know all of the wonderful students and families of Rockbrook and Prairie Lane, and I look forward to this fall!

Thank you,

Mr. Steele

New Adventures For Mr. Glanzer!

As you may have heard, Mr. Glanzer, our PE Teacher will be retiring after this year after 30 years of service to Westside!

"Thanks to all you parents and staff for making my Elementary experience wonderful. I have enjoyed working with the kids and seeing them progress from kindergarten up to high school! We've had so many go on to do great things and it's rewarding to know we as elementary teachers have had an impact on their lives! I plan to continue my painting and handyman business as well as working at the golf course in Okoboji! I've been offered a job being a project manager so time will tell!"

We want to wish Mr. Glanzer well in these new adventures and hope to see him around the course!
