Greetings from our Principal

It is an honor to serve as interim principal at Glencoe. I am impressed by the tremendous community support and involvement and humbled by the dedication and experience of the staff. My commitment is to continuous improvement and equity of instructional practices. Collaboration is essential to success, so I welcome your ideas, support and partnership in this important work. I look forward to meeting you and getting to know your wonderful children this year and will strive to help facilitate a smooth transition to a long-term, permanent principal beginning next fall.

Glencoe Energy Bikes

"Let's Bottle That Energy!"

Check out the cool Portland Tribune article!!

WE DID IT!!!!!!  Thanks again to all that contributed! Our bikes are here and the energy is flowing!

Our Donors Choose project was for 2 UpCycle bikes to be used by the whole school (grown-ups and kids!) and 5 solar battery packs for classroom use. The bikes aren't just any old bikes. They are stationary bikes made in the Portland area. When peddled, they generate energy which will then be sent into the grid, thereby saving us money on electricity. After all, we are an Oregon Premier Green School and we do live in Portland. We have now taken our GREENNESS to the next level! In the school project called "Let's Bottle That Energy!" we have the ability to create opportunites for our students to explore science, math and engineering in a unique way. You can learn more about our project at http://www.donorschoose.org/lisa.davidson

We earned matching funds from the Paul Allen Foundation for our project and the entire project was funded within 2 days! Wow!  Many thanks to the great parents who have supported us and to Consolidated Community Credit Union for their generous donation!

Want to learn more about our bikes, check out the video from our Kick-Off assembly.
