Can't Hide Our Wildcat Pride

Wildcat families,


As we reach the halfway point of this school year and look forward to our holiday break it is important to reflect on how far we have come. Each and every day our teachers come to school to facilitate amazing learning for our students. Over the next few weeks, your children will have opportunities to share what they have learned. We will take that data to inform decisions as we plan to better personalize their learning for the 2nd half of the school year. It is important to us that you are a part of this process because as a team we are so much more effective. Please help us as we look to plan for next semester by taking this brief survey. Your input is so important to us and helps us to better serve our students and families.


I am both extremely thankful and grateful for the great things that are happening here at Glanton-Hindsman Elementary School. We wish each family happy holidays and hope they have a wonderful break spent with their family and friends. We are excited about the opportunities in front of us to make this year the best yet.


Thank you,

Joseph Grainger

We also kept track of the total number of words our students read in the month of November and rewarded the top class in each grade level with ice cream. Students can contribute to their class word count by reading and passing AR quizzes.
