Welcome Back 2021!

Tuesday, August 17, 2021

Welcome to West!!!!!!!  Our 3rd, 4th and 5th grade building is a great place to be!  Our school has 7 sections of 3rd grade, 7 sections of 4th grade and 6 sections of 5th grade.  Our building is the oldest in the district, (the original High School many years ago) but we LOVE it!  

At West we will continue our focus on PBIS (Positive Behavioral Supports).  A framework for honoring the great things students and staff do on a daily basis, and working with students on behaviors that may get in their way of being successful.  We believe you teach behaviors like you would teach reading and math.  You instruct clearly, give chances to practice and offer extra teaching for students that don't "get it" on the first try.  You will hear lots about this program throughout the year.

We are a staff of veteran Glenwood teachers.  We have one new teacher, Melanie Schoening joining us this year, but she has really been in the district one year already (Middle School Special Education teacher).  Mrs. Schoening will be supporting students in the 4th grade wing!  We are so glad to have her joining our team.

We hope you all have had a wonderful summer, and that everyone in your home is looking forward to school beginning.  See you on the 23rd (from 4-6pm) for Drop off Supply Night, and then school starts on August 24th!!!!!
