AFTER SCHOOL ENRICHMENT - Do you have time and a gift, or a talent, you’d like to share with the students of Glenmont School? We are looking for you! We are in the beginning stages of bringing after school enrichment back to Glenmont and we need your help! We are looking for parents, grandparents, and members of our school community who might be interested in sharing their talent or gift after school with a small group of children. Talents and gifts could simply be your day job or a hobby. Are you a scientist by day and would like to encourage more children to see the excitement in science? Do you have a hobby of collecting something and would like to share your collection and encourage this forgotten pastime? Other talents or gifts may include (but are definitely not limited to) crochet/knitting, a second language, baking/cookie decorating, yoga, drawing, painting, magic, jewelry making, reading (creating a book club), technology etc. Your imagination is the limit! If you are interested in hearing more about this awesome opportunity, please reach out to Jen Frick at email@example.com or Laurie Tafilowski at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Glenmont Elementary School is hosting a Fundraiser for the Chris Porter Endowment Fund on Thursday, December 5, 2019 from 4 to 7 p.m. in the Glenmont Gym/Cafeteria. Chris Porter taught 5th grade at Glenmont School for many years, moving to Eagle Elementary when that school opened. In November of 2017, she succumbed to brain cancer. This is Glenmont’s way to pay tribute to her and raise money in support of a scholarship for high school students in her name.
We hope you can join us on December 5!
BOX TOPS- Box Tops now has an app to help our school raise money and save on clipping. To help support the Glenmont school community: download the app to your mobile device, choose Glenmont Elementary as your school, and start scanning your receipts! The paper Box Tops can still be clipped and sent into the school before they are completely phased out. Thank you for your support!
What are Box Tops, you say?
Box Tops can really help our school
They are a small but useful tool
They can be found here and there
In Glenmont and most anywhere
From soup cans to cereal boxes
But probably not on bagels and loxes
So please cut them out and send them in
For each 'Top sent, a dime we win!
