Glenview Elementary

Providing a nurturing learning environment for all children.

August 1, 2016

Dar Parents/Guardians:

On behalf of Glenview Elementary School, I would like to welcome you to the 2016-17 school year. I hope you and your children have enjoyed a relaxing and fun summer and are ready to begin a great year at Glenview. We look forward to welcoming back all of our returning students and parents, and to meeting the many new families who will be joining Glenview Elementary this year. To each and every one of you – our warmest of welcomes!

Our first day of school will be on Monday, August 29, 2016. We are in the process of completing all class lists. Class lists will be posted at 5:00 p.m. on Friday, August 26th. Student placement information will not be available prior to this time. Please note that all class placements are tentative for the first two weeks of school due to changing enrollment during this time. We are unable to honor parent requests for changes in class placements until the enrollment stabilizes, which will be after the first two weeks of school. Adjustments will be made only if, extenuating circumstances warrant such changes. Our teachers have worked diligently in determining the best placement for every child. While we understand that this may sometimes conflict with your preference, there are so many elements that come into play with these decisions, of which only our teachers can be fully aware. Your patience and trust in this process is therefore requested and very much appreciated.

Back to School Night – Glenview’s annual Back to School Night will be held on Thursday, September 8th at 6:30 pm. Please plan to attend as this is your chance to meet your child’s teacher and have classroom procedures, expectations and curriculum explained. Our goal is 100% parent attendance for this important event. Our annual PTA meeting will be held prior to Back to School Night in our Multi-Purpose Room at 6:00 p.m. We encourage you to attend to learn more about how you can volunteer and support the many wonderful programs and events we have planned for the upcoming school year. This evening is for ADULTS ONLY – No children please.
*Please note that this evening is not for our Preppy K parents – our Preppy K orientation on August 26th replaces Back to School Night for our Preppy K teachers and families.

Our first Minimum Day WEDNESDAY for all 1-6 students will be Weds. August 31st, 2016, and will continue every Wednesday thereafter. Our district calendar is accessible on the PYLUSD website, providing important dates for this coming year and our PTA 2016-2017 School Calendar of Events will be posted soon for your reference.

Once again, welcome back! I am very excited to begin the new school year and look forward to working with you and your children. If at any time throughout the school year, you have a question or need assistance please give us a call at 714-986-7150. We look forward to seeing you on Monday August 29th.
