Student photoJune 23, 2014

Some of the fifth-graders may not remember the leprechaun traps from kindergarten, the landform projects from grade 3 or the buttons on a string from Twelfth Night in grade 4.

They were reminded of many of their past projects today during "A Walk Down Memory Lane" in the library media center and outside the primary wing door.

Grade 5 teachers Rachel Delgado and Christine DeCarlo created the program with the help of many current and past staff members.  [read MORE]camera link icon

Have a meal at McDonald's and help out the Glen-Worden PTA on Tuesday, April 8

McTeacher's Night will will be held from 4:30 to 7 p.m. on Tuesday, April 8, at  the Glenville McDonalds on Route 5 (across from Target).

Between those hours, 20 percent of the sales - including drive thru and counter service - will be donated back to the Glen-Worden PTA.

At least 15 staff volunteers will be at the restaurant during those hours to greet customers and help out.

 McDonald's will provide an ice cream party to the classroom with the most diners who attend the event. The PTA will track sales by classroom.

Students have read more than 250,000 minutes since October; time to exercise

February 10, 2014

Student photoMany of the 245 students at Glen-Worden have been reading a lot since the Reading Millionaire program began in October.

In fact, they have read at least 250,000 minutes so far - that is 4,166 hours of reading. Their goal is to read for 1 million minutes.

To celebrate this one-quarter milestone, the school today got students moving and exercising - whether by learning Zumba, crawling across the gymnasium floor or balancing themselves against a wall. They also heard a mystery PTA reader.

Blended in all of the activities was talk about eating healthy with Food Facts at each station. [MORE] camera link icon

 If you find it’s getting harder and harder to help your child with his or her homework every night, it’s not you.
Schools in New York and 44 other states have begun to implement the Common Core Learning Standards – a set of standards that will be consistent from state to state. The goal is to ensure that students from coast to coast are college- and career-ready when they graduate from high school. Download the flyer above and watch a video for parents. [MORE]

Responsive Classroom is being used at all Scotia-Glenville elementary schools. Find out more about it here, including a video developed for Curiosity Showcase.

Save your Box Tops for Education labels, Campbell's Soup Labels for Education, and also small printer cartridges for Glen-Worden fundraisers.
