 "Novel Engineering" in the Media Center with Fifth Grade

Students read about a problem a character was having in the novel, "Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing." (Fudge, the trouble-making 2 year old brother of Peter, wouldn't keep his hands off Peter's turtle, Dribble).  They worked in groups to design, build, test, and present inventions for a "Fudge-proof" turtle tank. Their inventions were amazingly creative and effective! Check out the Library Media Center page for a short video of the fifth grade engineers at work.

DEMYSTIFYING THE COMMON CORE – This GreatSchools site aims to make the new K-­‐5 standards accessible to parents and others via brief videos for each grade level: http://www.greatschools.org/gk/milestones/

SPRING GLEN PTA AFTER-SCHOOL ACTIVITIES - The After-School Activities program needs a volunteer (or volunteers) to oversee after-school programming for next year. If interested, contact the PTA.


Doors open at 8:30 AM and student walkers from grades K - 6 will enter through the front door. Do not drop off your child at the school before 8:30 am, as there is no adult supervision.   

Bus:  If your child usually takes the bus and you do not want your child taking the bus home on a specific day , please make sure you write a note.  Without a note your child will be placed on the bus. 
Walkers:  Parents, please form a line and wait for your child to be dismissed to you for the safety of everyone!  If your child is a walker we are asking you to wait for dismissal.  Please do not come into the office to pick up your child between 3:15 PM and 3:30 PM. 
  • Grades K and 1 will be dismissed from the lower level at 3:25 PM
  • Grades 2 and 3 will be dismissed through the main doors at 3:30 PM
  • Grades 4, 5 and 6 will be dismissed through the side doors near the playground at 3:34 PM
Should you need to pick up your child early, please send in a note. If you have not sent in a note and cannot pick up your child before 3:15, please wait until regular dismissal times as it is very disruptive to the dismissal process to call students out of class between 3:15 and 3:30.  Thank you for your cooperation with this request.
