North Glendale Family Update

Summer Edition #2: July 5, 2020

Good morning!

I hope this finds you and yours well!


This past week you received a letter from our outgoing PTO Presidents, Lydia Gwin and Kelli Ivy. I wanted to offer my sincere thanks for the work they have done during their term and also for their support during my transition. I look forward to working with our incoming PTO President's Lisa Niemann and Colleen Wolff and the rest of the board as we navigate 2020-2021.


A reminder that the PTO is for everyone..if you are a North Glendale adult...you are a member! PTO functions and meetings are great ways to meet other families, keep updated on PTO supports or maybe find your niche for possibly volunteering. Our events and meetings might have to look different this year due to Covid, but the spirit of community and supporting our teachers and kids, is constant.


Speaking of next year...I know that our re-entry to 2020-2021 is on everyone's minds. Dr. Ulrich, Superintendent, shared the guiding principles for our planning as well as survey results from families, staff and kids. All of the info can be found in the most recent KSD Spotlight.


Please reach out if I can be of service.

Bright School Kitz: School Supply Packs

The NG PTO is once again partnering with Bright SchoolKitz to make back to school time a little less stressful. By purchasing a school supply pack you can skip that trip to the back to school sales and really stay socially distant!


Packs are specific to your grade level and are filled with brand name and quality products.

What's even better? This year, every school kit purchased will help pay forward school supplies for a child in need. Win, win, WIN!


Visit the site http://www.schoolkitz.com and type in North Glendale or click HERE for more info. Lists are also available on our website. Supply lists can also be found on our website.

Track Re-Openings

In following St. Louis County’s First Phase of Reopening, KSD is slowly reintegrating the student body and public to school’s outdoor facilities beginning with the high school and middle school tracks. Temporary restrictions to playgrounds are still enforced pursuant to the St. Louis County because they are high touch areas.

NORTH GLENDALE PTO NIGHT AT THE MAGIC HOUSE

Thursday, Aug. 20th, 6-8:30pm

516 South Kirkwood Road

St. Louis, MO

More details will be coming but mark your calendars for a chance to reconnect and kick off the school year!

Resources for Parenting During Covid

In wondering how your kids are doing with their (possible) worries about Covid, perhaps transitioning back to school, maybe not having any closure to LAST school year...I'm going to start sharing articles and resources I come across.


We as adults have worries and anxiety, and years of experiences to help us cope. Our little ones have no frame of reference for what is going on and for what will continue to be our reality at least for a while.



If you need any assistance, please reach out to Mr. Leonard or myself.

We will do all we can to support you or help you find what you need.

Everyone is welcome to attend!

These bins will be collected at the end of day by the amazing Mr. Shan and taken to the library.

The bins will be set out Monday-Thursday each week until further notice.
