Greetings from our Principal
Greetings Glencoe Families,
At Glencoe we envision a caring community where every student feels connected, valued and validated through relevant instruction, curriculum, and school activities. Our first-ever Glencoe Family Night was a big success on Wednesday. The evening began with the first-ever public performance of the Glencoe Marimba band. This was followed by a game of Inside/Outside Circle in which everyone was actively involved in learning about each other's families. Pizza, cookies and veggies were served while each family created family flags. Family flags are small banners that showcase the people, traditions and celebrations unique to each Glencoe family. You can see the flags displayed inside the main hall and on page 2 of the November 15 flyer. Is was a very special night. I learned so much about everything that makes each of our families unique, special and an integral part of our collective Glencoe family. Thanks to everyone that attended. Also, a big thanks to our PTA Board, Family Equity Team, Counselor Sara, volunteers and staff for making this great night possible.
