  • Fourth Grade Teacher Kristen Mirus Recognized as a "Star"

    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. Mrs. Hogan stated, "She takes every initiative to get to know her students' strengths in order to build on them and is an advocate for their needs. She works tirelessly to learn new and innovative strategies so that her students are well prepared to be life-long learners. She is also willing to share her knowledge with others. This past quarter, Mrs. Mirus took the huge responsibility of having a student-teacher in her room. She was able to mentor and guide her student teacher and I am confident that Mrs. Oketo benefited greatly from her knowledge and skills."

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.
