    Congratulations to Mrs. Mirus, Glen Oaks 4th Grade Teacher, who has been recognized as Star of NPD117! Mrs. Mirrus was nominated by co-worker Andrea Hogan. Mrs. Hogan nominated Mrs. Mirus due to her dedication and hard work.

  • Glen Oaks Students Read for Record

    Glen Oak’s School participated in Jumpstart’s Read for the Record® on Thursday, October 27, 2016. Read for the Record® brings people from all over the world together to read the same story in an attempt to set the World Reading Record. During the Glen Oaks event, students in second and fourth grade, and students in third and fifth grade, were paired together. The older students read the story, The Bear Ate Your Sandwich by Julia Sarcone-Roach, Jumpstart’s official 2016 book, to the younger students. They then discussed the book with their partner. This is the second year that Glen Oaks students have taken part in the world’s largest shared reading experience.
