Principal's Post

Happy February! There have been so many great things that have taken place this past month and so much to look forward to! I hope you all were able to see the Channel 3 News broadcast for the Eagles pep rally. If you weren't able to view it click here. The energy was electric and the children really enjoyed it. Our soft pretzel sale was a hit so make sure to order your soft pretzels! This month we will celebrate the 100th day of school as well as Read Across America. There may even be a special appearance from some Dr. Seuss characters! Students are learning about many great people this month to honor Black History Month. Be sure to ask your child what they have learned.

Congratulations to Grenloch's Teacher of the Year Mrs. Amanda Kowal!!

Congratulations to Our Grenloch Gardeners

Students were nominated by each classroom teacher for showing the most growth in January’s area: self-advocacy – saying when something is wrong and standing up for yourself and others.

The Grenloch Gardener Award is a new initiative the Principal and school counselor Lauren Krupa have developed to highlight students who show progress in various developmentally appropriate areas. The teachers and Mrs. Krupa work on these skills throughout the month.

Childhood is not a race to see how quickly a child can read, write, and count. Childhood is a small window of time to learn and develop at the pace which is right for each individual child.
