News From the LRC

Due Date

Today was the last day for students to check out library books this year. All books are due back to the library on Tuesday, May 28. Students can review their library account at any time to see what titles are still under their names by logging into Alexandria. Students can log-in using their standard username and GV password. Students who still have books out after May 31, will be asked to pay for the missing/lost titles. If students pay for missing/lost books and find them before the end of the school year you will be given a refund.

A Big Thank You to the Library Council

Once again the Library Council representatives did an amazing job.

Authors Visit

On Tuesday, May 14, author Jennifer A. Nielsen spoke to the fourth and fifth grade students. She shared the history behind the building of the Berlin Wall and the Polish resistance during World War II. Students were amazed that history could be so fascinating. Check out her two historical titles, A Night Divided and Resistance. The PTA generously donated both titles to each fourth and fifth grade classroom.

The lost and found is overflowing at Glen Grove. If your child has lost his/her coat, snow pants, boots, sweatshirt, lunch box, water bottle, shorts, etc. please stop by Glen Grove to collect your items. Everything will be donated on June 6th.

Mandatory Health Forms for 2019 - 2020 Incoming 6th Graders

Please remember that all incoming 6th grade students MUST have a physical examination (within the last 12 months), including required vaccinations, turned in prior to August 21, 2019. Your child will NOT be able to start school until the physical form is turned in. If your child’s health forms are already complete, you can turn them into the Glen Grove health office any time between now and the last day of school. They will be forwarded to your child’s middle school with their health file. If you have any questions, please call Mrs. Hastings, Health Coordinator, at (847)657-2394. Click here for the health exam form.

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.

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.
