Within District 35, we value ongoing, respectful communication between home and school to ensure a strong partnership for the benefit of our students. Questions regarding assignments, student’s progress or other school-related issues should be directed first to the classroom teacher, the primary source of information. We appreciate our parents taking this first step for us to work together in a constructive manner.
While email is an efficient tool to ask simple questions, should the topic require more discussion and details, we encourage our parents and teachers to set a mutually agreeable time for a conversation. At times nothing is as effective as a live conversation (via phone or in person) to respectfully work together and hear multiple perspectives. Thank you for your partnership.
We invite Kindergarten through 4th grade parents to join us on October 11th from 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm at South School for a hands on, in depth look at Words Their Way implementation at South and West. Please join us as we share an overview of the instructional practice and engage in small group sessions to learn more about your child’s word study experience.

Glencoe School District 35 is offering early childhood screenings for Glencoe children birth through 5 years of age. The screenings are open to Glencoe residents who have concerns about their child’s development in the areas of: speech-language, fine motor skills, concept development, and/or social/emotional growth. Vision and hearing screenings are also provided, for children 3 years and older.
Screenings will be held on:
Monday, October 23 and Tuesday, October 24, 2017
9:00 AM – 1:00 PM, by appointment
We ask that children participate in all components of the screening. These early childhood screenings are being conducted in an effort to identify children who may benefit from special education services and/or consultation during early development. Please be prepared to describe your concerns regarding your child in the above areas. Please note, the screening is not designed to determine kindergarten readiness.
Additional information on childhood developmental milestones is available at the following website: http://www.cdc.gov/ncbddd/actearly/milestones/
