WELCOME TO THE PRIDE!
We are so very happy to welcome every bright and shining Panther face to our Glen Oaks Panthers team. Every school year begins with such excitement and promise, and our goal is to extend that excitement and fulfill that promise throughout the 2014-15 school year.
It was wonderful to see and meet so many Panther Parents at our Parent Orientation Night on the 28th. If you were unable to attend, we have posted the PowerPoint presentation covering district and schoolwide initiatives this year on our Glen Oaks web page. Please contact your child’s teachers for more specific grade level information.
Within this month’s Glen Oaks Gazette is a letter from Illinois State Superintendent Christopher Koch inviting parents to participate in a “Back-to-School” webinar being held for Illinois public school students’ parents and guardians at 7 p.m. on Tuesday, September 9th. Registration information is provided at the end of that letter.
Please plan to join Glen Oaks and Dorn on Thursday, September 4th between 5 and 8 p.m. at the Barnes and Noble Bookstore at 153rd and LaGrange Road in Orland Park (160 Orland Park Place). The schools will host a number of events including LEGO stations, crafts, face-painting and a Teachers’ Readers Theater.
There will also be cupcake decorating and a book fair from which the schools will receive a percentage of the sale of most items (including food and drink.) Gift cards and e-book sales are not part of the fundraiser.
The PTA Grandparents Candy Bar Bingo will be called by Panther Coach Grimm on Saturday, September 6th. A flyer will be going home soon.
Also, please mark your calendars for Wednesday, October 22nd for Family Reading Night at Glen Oaks and Saturday, October 25th for the “Howlin’ Through the Hills” Walk/Run to raise money for the Lions Club, which sponsors many programs for people with vision difficulties. We’d love to read and run or walk with YOU!
