Conferences are scheduled for next Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday.  Due to conferences, there is no school for students on Tuesday and Wednesday.  Child care will be available in the library during your child's scheduled conference time.  Please contact your child's teacher if you need to still schedule a conference or need to make a change. 

10/11/17 Everyone enjoyed the visit from Fire Fighters Bill and Billy Ernst. For 16 years, Bill has come to share this presentation. We are so grateful to Glenside Fire Company and the Ernst family to have this presentation each year to share fire safety tips with your children. Please remember to check your smoke alarm batteries. Ask your children the fire safety tips from "Stop, Drop and Roll" to  calling 911. Enjoy the slide show below and have your child tell you more about our presentation.

10/2/17  Children are practicing safety drills at school.  Next Wednesday, October 11th, the Montessori Unit will have a fire safety presentation. Children will learn about fire safety and have a chance to climb on a fire truck.

Fire Safety Presentation
Pass It On


We will pass it on at school by: helping someone who is hurt, helping a friend clean up his work, inviting a child to join in a game on the playground, letting someone else go first, accepting a friend's apology, listening to each other

At home you can pass it on by:  sharing and listening about our day at school and work, making a card for someone who is not feeling well, asking each member of the family if there is anything you can do for them and then helping them out
