Hi Glen Grove Students and Families!


Happy New Year!


Before winter break, we finished up our volleyball unit. Students worked on the skills of bumping, setting, and serving. Students also learned the rules of a regulation volleyball game and played a modified game called Newcombe.


We have started our basketball unit. Students will be working on the skills of dribbling, passing, and shooting. We will be playing half court games at the end of the unit. Students will have the opportunity to pick which court best suits their confidence and ability level: beginner, intermediate or advanced. The beginner courts will play at a slower pace in order to get students to feel comfortable about playing basketball.


Our next units after basketball will be gymnastics and climbing. Students will be given the opportunity to climb the cargo net and prusics ropes. In gymnastics, students will be working on different rolls, stunts, jumps and balances. At the end of the unit, students will be create a routine that they will perform for the teacher.


Coming Soon …. Information about Kids Heart Challenge! (formerly known as Jump Rope for Heart)

Food Service Information

Please review this important food service information which includes the menu cycle and the cycle calendar. Click here for the December Food Service Newsletter.

Change in Dismissal Arrangements

​If you need to change the after school pick-up arrangements for your child, please send a note to you child's teacher. If you need to change arrangements at the last minute, during the school day, please make sure you call our office before 2:00 p.m. to inform us of the change. There is a lot going on in a school office both at the beginning and the end of school day. By calling before 2:00 p.m., you are giving the front office staff the time needed to locate classroom teachers and communicate the message regarding the pick-up arrangements for your child in a timely manner.

Outdoor Recess Procedures

The benefits of an outdoor recess are many and Glen Grove makes every effort to see that all of our students go outdoors every day. Children are able to exercise, socialize and experience a variety of activities with friends and this all helps to enhance their learning experience. Starting the afternoon after a time of fresh air definitely improves learning, alertness and overall productivity.

Please make sure your children are dressed appropriately for outdoor play. In cold weather boots, mittens or gloves, warm jackets, snow pants, hats and scarves are a must. If your child wears boots to school, please remember to send in shoes for them to use during physical education. The wind chill factor must be ten or below or it must be too wet or raining before we cancel outdoor recess. The children are out approximately 20 minutes. Please note that children must wear coats if temperatures are below 32°F.

We are often presented with requests for children to remain indoors at recess, generally because of allergies or as part of a recovery from illness. If it is necessary for your child to be indoors at recess, a note from the doctor will be required. We appreciate your support and cooperation with our recess procedure.

Cell Phone Usage Form

All students that carry a cell phone to school must have a cell phone usage form on file with the front office. Please fill out the attached form and send it to the Glen Grove Office. The guidelines are included in this attachment.
