Open House Expectations

The purpose of Open House is for parents to learn about their child's year. It is also an opportunity for you to show pride in your classroom and your work with your students!


- Your room is tidy and organized
- Student work up in the hall and in the classroom.

- Hallway bulletin boards should not be empty....


Thanks to Ms. Plambeck, Mr. Takimoto and Coach C. for leading a great PD to prepare us for our upcoming LGBTQ Pride day and to help us reflect on how to create a more inclusive school every day.

This month, Mr. Alexander, Mr. Miller, Ms. Plambeck and Mr. Litt are piloting an online math program called ST Math.

If you want to learn more about this program and how it could support student growth and create a blended learning environment in you classroom, talk to our pilot-ers!

Thank you to Mr. Miller for taking the lead on this!

To accomplish this, I will be hosting a voluntary school site Faculty Focus Visit. The meeting is open to teachers & staff from Sequoia, Glenview, Garfield, and Fruitvale.

Moving Hearts

Thursday, May 12th is Safe Routes to School Day!

Get out your bikes because Safe Routes to School Day is right around the corner! Glenview will have the smoothie bike, coffee, and bagels to enjoy at the beginning of school as students, parents, and teachers bike into work.

Safe Routes to School is a comprehensive, proven approach to getting more kids walking and biking safely to school. It gives kids and parents skills, encouragement, and inspiration through a range of activities, events, and lessons, while also addressing local pedestrian and personal safety concerns.

Please let your students know to bring their bikes on Thursday, May 12th. Fliers will also be handed out to each class to help remind students of this upcoming event! And if you have a bike, please consider riding in yourself -- even if just part of the way. No doubt the students will love seeing their favorite teachers cruising in on a bicycle!
