    We ask that you honor two requests. Please do not bring siblings with you during Open House. Siblings are not permitted to be in the classroom, since instruction is taking place. Also, no video cameras are permitted during classroom visitation.

    Glenwood Kindergarteners are headed to the Book Fair this week. Mrs. Dabrowski's classes will go on Wednesday, Nov. 18th. Mrs. Taylor's classes will go on Friday, Nov. 20th. We are getting excited to see our parents at the Open House on Thursday, Nov. 19th.



    The first graders have been busy learning interesting facts about life at the aquarium. The first graders are excited to see Genny and Button, the two hippos that live at the Adventure Aquarium. The students have learned facts about the hippo's habitat and their behaviors that make them different. Genny and Button will have many new friends watching and learning about them on our field trip.



    Second Grade is excited for Community Day this Thursday. We have been practicing and preparing all week. The students will come to school dressed as their chosen occupation. They were reminded to keep it simple and that bringing in a prop to represent their occupation would do. We will begin at 9:30 in the large group room. After our presentation, parents may join us in our classrooms for a Math lesson. Thank you for your cooperation and we are looking forward to seeing you on Thursday.



    Third grade students are learning how to use known multiplication facts to solve division equations. Using multiplication and division fact families helps us solve more difficult division problems. We are continuing to work hard at studying characters through a book series and making predications and inferences about our characters as we move onto the next book in the series. We have loved going to the Book Fair this week and shopping for books to fuel our love of reading! Don’t forget that Parent/Teacher conferences are next Monday and Tuesday. If you haven’t signed up for a conference yet, please go to the Glenwood website to reserve your spot.



    On Friday, we will have a normal math class during our Open House. Please go to your child's math class and see what we've been learning this year. Do you have the Pearson BouncePages app? Download this app onto any electronic device with a camera. Take a picture of your child’s homework page using the app to see short video clip that will explain helpful strategies to use to solve the problems!

    4th Grade needs clear 2 liter soda bottles for our Ecosystems unit. If you have any, please send them to one of the fourth grade teachers.


    As we move into the latter portion of November, the 5th grade is getting ready for Parent Teacher conferences and progress reports, both of which will take place later this month. Progress reports will be distributed on Friday, Nov. 20. Conferences will follow the week after progress reports, on Nov. 23 and 24. Academically, the 5th grade has launched into the writing of informational essays.   In Reader’s Workshop, Glenwood’s 5th grade students are now turning their attention to the best strategies for reading non-fiction. In particular, 5th grade students will be paying careful attention to the reading of science and social studies. With that in mind, in social studies, the 5th grade continues to look at the first Europeans in North America and how their arrival in North America impacted the Native American population.   In Science, the 5th grade continues to use the scientific method in our study of weather. In grammar, students are focusing attention on best practices in the art of writing a good sentence, in particular how to best use semicolons and commas.

    The Running and Walking Club has finished up for the Fall. We are proud to announce that over an eight-week period, collectively the students in the club ran 257.5 miles. We are so proud of our students and their commitment to the club. Mrs. Barry and Miss Fizzano look forward to meeting back again in the springtime.



    The Junior Optimist Club has the final total for the Candy Care Drive. Drum roll please...... Glenwood Elementary students donated 175 pounds of candy! That surpasses our goal by 80 pounds from last year's candy drive! The candy is ready to be distributed to children in need all around the Delaware County Area! The Glenwood Junior Optimists thank you for all of your support and generosity!

    The Yoga Club continues to meet on Monday mornings at 8:15. Mrs. Yepremian, Miss.Mazzella and Mrs. Falzone are so impressed by the way the students are focusing on their yoga poses. We continue to work on breathing strategies to relieve stress and focus on the positives for the day. The "yogis" are doing a fabulous job! Namaste!
