Greetings from our Principal

Dear Glencoe Families,
I am delighted to have been selected as the principal of Glencoe Elementary and anticipate an exciting year as we collectively strive to foster a culture of learning. I feel extremely fortunate to be working with such an exceptional group of students, families, and staff members and look forward to an exciting year of learning and growing.
Over the last the twenty-eight years I have served the students of the Portland and Salem-Keizer School District as a teacher, athletic coach, TOSA, assistant principal and principal.  My main goal is to ensure that every student is provided the highest quality of academic education as possible in a safe and supportive learning environment. Every student is valued and worthy of our best effort.
With much respect;
Samantha Ragaisis
