Book Fair!

Many thanks to all who volunteered and/or participated in our first in person book fair in ....a long time! Another little piece of normal for our kids and families! A reminder that the online book fair continues through November 14.

2022 NG Yearbook plans are underway!

Important info about picture retakes: If your child participated in picture retakes, our photographer will assume you want the retake to be used as their portrait in the yearbook. If this is NOT the case, please contact Kate Smith (katepribyl@gmail.com) no later than November 15th. Include your childs name, grade and teacher in the email.


Submitting pictures to be considered for the yearbook: If you have great candid photos of NG kids, you can share them on facebook using #northglendaleyearbook or email them to northglendaleyearbook@gmail.com. If emailing, please include teachers name and grade of children in the photos.
