Dear Families,

Happy New Year!

Before year- end, we had the GAE Choral concert. Congratulations to all of our student choral members. Seeing and hearing our students perform is always a special gift!

Thank you to:

  • our wonderful students

  • Ms. Krasley for teaching and leading the students
  • Mr. Fuette for writing the script and working with the all of the staff performers
  • Mr. Binkley for supporting the performance and participating in the show
  • All the staff who participated to make it extra fun for the students
  • The parents and staff for supporting the on-going efforts of teaching the students music in our school

We are so proud of our students for their hard work and excellent performance.

On December 19, in recognition of our students' good behavior, we had a school wide bingo game. It was fun seeing the students so excited to win a prize.

Thank you to our parents for organizing and delivering fun holiday parties in the classroom. We appreciate all you do to make the day extra-fun!

PBIS ( Positive Behavior Intervention System) Individual Rewards

Did you know our Eagle mascott was renamed last year? The students voted and renamed our eagle, Champ.

Students in each class at every grade level will be recognized for being Champ’s Champions! Teachers will nominate three individual students from their room, one for each expectation we have at Glen Acres in our Eagles’ Way: Respect, Responsibility, and Kindness. Immediately after announcements for six consecutive school mornings, those ‘Champions’ will be called to the office and receive a certificate and a pencil. We will take their picture and display it in the lobby. We really want to recognize those students who consistently demonstrate the expectations we talk about, teach about, and reinforce.

This past Friday, we recognized some of our kindergarten students. Their pictures will be posted at school. Please find their picture below.
