Glenview @ Santa Fe Room Assignments

Per OEA contract, FC will review room assignments this week and I will share assignments by Monday. This will facilitate labeling your boxes.

Found it!

Mr. Witte: April 18-22


  • Pick up clothes in lower and upper yards and hang in the auditorium
  • Put all "little stuff" (lunches, books, headbands, scarves, hats) in the box next to the rack in the auditorium
  • Extra - zip/button up sweaters and jackets
  • More Extra - arrange by size (great for those looking for a "small jacket")

Even More Extra - create a "Labeled" tag(s) that demarks a section on the rack. If your team finds labeled clothes, they can hang them in the labeled area of the rack.

Moving Hearts

RJ Drop In Time Starting for Students on Friday, May 6 in the Art Room with Coach C.

Starting on May 6th, Glenview will have a "RJ Drop-In" time on Fridays in the Art Room. All grades will have access to the Drop-in time during Lunch/Recess. Students can eat lunch, make art, and/or participate in RJ if a student is struggling, trying to resolve a conflict, or just wants some extra support and attention. For teachers, if you have any ongoing situations in your room that require these resources, please encourage students to bring these concerns/needs to Friday's Drop-In Time. Questions? Please email Coach C. at
