Dear Parents and Community Members:
A school building is usually the first place where a child feels a sense of belonging outside of the home.
As such, the Glencoe School District 35 teachers, staff, and administrative team strive to create classrooms that cultivate student ownership by nurturing, celebrating, and enriching experiences for each and every child in our District.
We encourage D35 students to find their own voice, listen empathetically to others, reflect on their own learning and growth, and work collaboratively with peers. We also encourage students and families to explore the many options for school clubs, generously supported by the District 35 PTO, and get involved with the ones that spark your child's curiosity.
As summer flies by, we eagerly anticipate the 2023-2024 academic year and the return of our staff and students.
We look forward to...
Sharing our theme of “belonging” - acknowledging how feeling safe helps children grow and learn. This includes hosting a Family Belonging Night on October 19.
Welcoming our new staff and students, including over 20 new staff members joining Glencoe School District 35 this year. Their expertise and talents will enrich and strengthen the learning environment for all of our children.
Inviting families and community members at-large to participate in our schools as we prioritize our series of Parent Education opportunities throughout the year.
Further, with the beginning of the school year comes a renewed commitment to our 2021-2024 Strategic Plan, Educational Excellence. This plan guides the District’s future with a clear focus on three strategic priorities: Advancing Learning and Innovation, Nurturing Health and Wellness, and Deepening Inclusion. We will keep the Board, families and the community updated on our progress toward these priorities during our monthly Board meetings.
Please join me in celebrating the end of summer and welcoming the new start to our school year.
We are pleased to open our year with our students on August 30!
