PBIS Postings

As students return to school area expectations are reviewed. We are looking to increase our Positive Office Referrals. POR is a recognition of a student making a great choice and showing kindness, compassion or other amazing traits. Ask your child if they have received a Positive Office Referral!

Promise Council Projects

Promise Council is supporting Glenn is so many ways. The Promise Council is creating a Women of Wisdom girl mentoring program for 3-5th grade girls. The girls will meet once a week. The goal of the group is to develop and train girls to be positive role models of kindness and caring for themselves and others. Another project is to support our Fifth grade students and teachers with a program called Opening Doors. This program shows youth the possibilities of careers in an array of fields. Speakers will come in and talk to our Fifth grade once a month. Promise Council is always looking for caring adults. The next meeting is at 5:00 on Tuesday, January 15th.
