Teacher/Staff Appreciation Week
5th Grade T-Shirt Ordering Information
On Friday, May 28, the PTA will host a picnic for all 5th grade students to
celebrate the end of their time at Glen Grove. As a part of the celebration, we are
creating a one-of-a-kind t-shirt designed by a Glen Grove 5th grader.
The front of the shirt will feature the winning design and the back of the shirt will
list the names of all the Glen Grove 5th graders.
The t-shirts are $8.00. To purchase a t-shirt, please go onto Member Hub site
OR send this order form and $8.00 in cash or check made out to WB/GG PTA.
Students will wear the t-shirts on the day of the picnic.
**** Size selections and orders must be turned in by Monday May 10. ****
If you have any questions, please contact Tracy at email@example.com
STUDENT FIRST & LAST NAME (as you would like it to appear on the back of the shirt):
Please circle a size below:
Child Medium / Child Large / Child X-Large
Adult Small / Adult Medium / Adult Large
It's not too late to order a yearbook!
Self-Assess - More Important Than Ever!
When your child comes to Glen Grove, the student self-assessment needs to be completed BEFORE YOUR STUDENT LEAVES FOR SCHOOL so that it shows up in our system by the time your child arrives.
Thank you in advance - this eliminates the need for your child to stand in line unnecessarily!
Log in to District 34's PowerSchool web portal to complete the self-certification tool.
Click on the SELF-ASSESSMENT link on the home page to submit your child’s temperature and answer questions about COVID-19 symptoms and exposure. Click submit. If you have multiple students in District 34 attending in-person on the same day, click on each student to fill out the self-assessment for them as well.
Please note that some of the questions have changed.
When students arrive at school, a staff member will scan their ipad barcode or bus pass barcode to confirm completion of the self-certification process.
Please be sure to send your child to school with their iPad, water bottle and mask.
Masks are required at all times when students are in our buildings. The District has provided cloth masks for every student and staff member; disposable masks will be available in our buildings for those who need them.
If your child rides the bus, they must wear their mask and remain in their assigned seat.
Thank you for helping to keep our school safe!
