Principal's Message

Please Welcome Mrs. Pollard!
The Glen Oaks Panthers are pleased to welcome Mrs. Pollard, who will be the principal of Glen Oaks School beginning January 4, 2016.  Mrs. Pollard comes to Glen Oaks with a wealth of experience as a junior high math and science teacher, as an intermediate English language arts teacher, an assistant principal, a math and science team leader, and nine years as an elementary school principal.  We are confident she will fit Ms. Grimm’s shoes very comfortably.  Ms. Grimm will no longer be our principal, but her presence will be felt every day.  Please see the January newsletter for Mrs. Pollard’s photo.
