Congratulations Glenn Elementary!

Glenn Elementary is proud to celebrate achieving first place in Illionis in the Scholastic Summer Reading Challenge. At the end of September, students at Glenn received a congratulatory letter from Governor Quinn. On October 3, students celebrated their accomplishment in a "Readers are Leaders" assembly. Students starred in their own movie and sang the school song. They received a banner from Scholastic to honor their accomplishment. Guest readers were in attendance and read aloud to students in their classrooms following the assembly. It was a GREAT Day!

One School One Word

The team at Glenn has been working hard to make this the best year ever. Each of us looked inside our hearts to find just ONE WORD on which to focus for this school year. We all have a Secret "Stretch" Pal who is encouraging us and celebrating our successes throughout the year. Our words have already had an impact on how we approach challenges at work and at home. We hope you can see the positive impact this process has had at Glenn Elementary. This video shows all the words that staff member chose.

Based on the book One Word that will change your life by Jon Gordon, Dan Britton and Jimmy Page
