LRC News

Authors Visit


The fifth graders enjoyed a visit from two local authors, Liesl Shurtliff, best known for her (Fairly) True Tales Series and Brianna Dumont, writer of the Changed History series. They shared with the fifth graders their writing process, how they research their books, and how students can use these skills in their own school work and everyday lives. The visit was courtesy of The Book Stall, an independent bookstore in Winnetka. Our generous PTA purchased a copy of both Thrilling Thieves: Liars, Cheats, Cons Who Changed History and Time Castaways: The Mona Lisa Key for each of the fifth grade classrooms and the library too. Thank you PTA for supporting our students’ reading!



Pumpkin Character Contest

Over 80 pumpkins were displayed in the library on Halloween. The school voted for 10 student created categories including most imaginative or creative, best hero or villain and best representation of a character. The winners were shared on the morning announcements and received student made “blue ribbons”.

Change in Dismissal Arrangements

​If you need to change the after school pick-up arrangements for your child, please send a note to you child's teacher. If you need to change arrangements at the last minute, during the school day, please make sure you call our office before 2:00 p.m. to inform us of the change. There is a lot going on in a school office both at the beginning and the end of school day. By calling before 2:00 p.m., you are giving the front office staff the time needed to locate classroom teachers and communicate the message regarding the pick-up arrangements for your child in a timely manner.

Outdoor Recess Procedures

The benefits of an outdoor recess are many and Glen Grove makes every effort to see that all of our students go outdoors every day. Children are able to exercise, socialize and experience a variety of activities with friends and this all helps to enhance their learning experience. Starting the afternoon after a time of fresh air definitely improves learning, alertness and overall productivity.

Please make sure your children are dressed appropriately for outdoor play. In cold weather boots, mittens or gloves, warm jackets, snow pants, hats and scarves are a must. If your child wears boots to school, please remember to send in shoes for them to use during physical education. The wind chill factor must be ten or below or it must be too wet or raining before we cancel outdoor recess. The children are out approximately 20 minutes. Please note that children must wear coats if temperatures are below 32°F.

We are often presented with requests for children to remain indoors at recess, generally because of allergies or as part of a recovery from illness. If it is necessary for your child to be indoors at recess, a note from the doctor will be required. We appreciate your support and cooperation with our recess procedure.

Cell Phone Usage Form

All students that carry a cell phone to school must have a cell phone usage form on file with the front office. Please fill out the attached form and send it to the Glen Grove Office. The guidelines are included in this attachment.
