Hello Glendale Families!

It's hard to believe we're nearing the end of school! It's been a busy and fun-filled year. Wishing you all a wonderful summer and look forward to seeing you in the fall!

The story for this month is: I Wish You More by Amy Krouse Rosenthal & Tom Lichtenheld

Some books are about a single wish. Some books are about three wishes. The infallible team of Amy Krouse Rosenthal and Tom Lichtenheld have combined their extraordinary talents to create this exuberant, inspirational book for kids of endless good wishes. Wishes for curiosity and wonder, for friendship and strength, laughter and peace. Whether celebrating life's joyous milestones, sharing words of encouragement, or observing the wonder of everyday moments, this sweet and uplifting book is perfect for wishers of every age.Whether this is a preschool graduation gift, a present for elementary kids, or just a positive book for kids in your life, this book of wishes is sure to bring positivity to all who read it.

I hope you enjoy it, and always remember to :

Be Safe

Be Responsible

Be Respectful

Jennifer Molitor

Glendale Elementary School Principal

I Wish You More


Students at Glendale will be recognized for showing the CARES skills through out the school year. Adults can recognize students who are doing an excellent job demonstrating: Cooperation, Assertion, Responsibility, Empathy or Self control. Students who are recognized will be honored with a certificate, have their names announced at an All School Meeting, will be showcased in the Glendale monthly newsletter and will get to enjoy a cinnamon roll breakfast with Mrs. Molitor & the other recipients during morning meeting.

Congratulations to all of the students that received this award for May & throughout the school year! We look forward to starting up the tradition again next Fall!


We have a 3 hour early release on Thursday, June 9th, our last day. A bag lunch will be served to students on that day. All students will be dismissed at 12:50 pm. Please make plans accordingly. We request that all students follow their normal routine home as usual on this busy day. This will help to insure that children get home safely.


The 1st-3rd grade concerts we had last month were INCREDIBLE!

Once again, Mrs. Kaso brought her "A-game" and didn't disappoint! We are very lucky to have her here at Glendale.

Here are the links to all of the concerts if you weren't able to attend, or just want to enjoy for a 2nd time!

Optimist Lunch

In honor of Youth Appreciation Week, the Prior Lake- Savage Optimist Club celebrated with a recognition lunch at Fong's back in May. We had two Glendale 5th graders who were nominated; Abigail Coombs & Willow Fox, both from Mrs. Erpenbach's class.

These two were recognized for demonstrating sincere devotion to the welfare of others through their service to fellow students, school, community, city or others; along with their willingness to take on projects, concerns for others and desire to improve our society/school environment. Congratulations! We are so proud of you both!


Mark your calendars!! We've got our WolfRidge dates for next year!

October 31st- November 4th

We look forward to getting the tradition back!

We will be having "Welcome & Assessment Days" on Tuesday, September 6th & Wednesday, September 7th where your student(s) will get a chance to meet their teacher and learn a little more of how the schedule will look. *Please look for a sign up link to come later this summer. If you have any questions please call the Glendale Office at 952.226.0200

PLSAS elementary schools will again hold "Great Start to Kindergarten." Designated days in

August were set aside for incoming Kindergarten students to come in prior to the school

year to be assessed. This gave the teachers an excellent indication where those students

were academically, so that curriculum planning could begin on day one. This year practice will continue and the dates for our Kindergarten assessments will be August 2nd-10th.


Please be sure to check your child(ren)'s School Cafe balances before the end of the school year. Any existing balances will transfer over to next year's accounts. Any negative balances will need to be paid.

*Please note: If your student(s) has a negative account balance, they will not be eligible to receive seconds of the entree.

We were fortunate to have state-funded lunches provided to us this year, however, families will once again be responsible for purchasing meals next year. If this is a hardship for your family & you need assistance, you may apply for the Free/Reduced Lunch program by filling out a form that can be found on the Parent Page of the district website under the School Cafe Logo.

If you have any questions, feel free to contact the Kitchen Manager, Pat Tasse, at 952.226.0208 or the office at 952.226.0200.


On the last day of school this year the federally funded waivers enacted during the pandemic providing free meals for all students, will end. Meal prices for all grade levels will remain the same as they were pre-pandemic and are located on our website here. Students will begin using their PIN numbers once again, these PIN numbers are located in School Cafe and in Infinite Campus, all accessible in the Parent Portal on our website here. In order to qualify for free and reduced price meals an Application for Educational Benefits must be filled out yearly and is also located on our website and in the School Cafe app. If your family would benefit from free meals this summer, please use the resources linked below:
