Principal Post

Where has the year gone? We only have 8 more weeks of school. These next weeks are filled with many activities and opportunities for families of Glenn. Please make sure to mark your calendars now, so that you do not miss out. We will be focusing on the PERSEVERANCE during the month of April. We all persevere in the face of challenges great or small. It takes pushing ourselves to do our best everyday. Talk to your children about perseverance.
