Glacier Ridge Elementary School 04.17.20
Dear Glacier Ridge Families and Polar Bears,
We are missing everyone during this time of separation and distancing. Happily, we did see some of you on Thursday as we passed out books at the school entrance. Even Klondike was there; in a mask of course! We couldn't have done it though without the help of Ms. Thomas, Mrs. Seisser and two of our dedicated bus drivers. A huge thank you to Bernie's Book Bank https://www.berniesbookbank.org/ and Follett School Solutions for helping get books into the hands of our Polar Bears and other students across the district.
We have been observing in virtual classrooms and participating in some of the activities. The students have been doing a great job. You make our hearts happy when you share the pictures and video of all that you have been up to.
As always we will keep you up to date on information. Have a safe and healthy weekend. Hopefully we can put our snow shovels away for good!
Mr. Jacobsen and Mrs. Adams
Look at what some of our Polar Bears have been doing in their learning!
We would love to see what your kiddos have been doing in their learning! Please see below for more info on how to send us a picture or two! #PolarBearPride
