Happy Friday Glenwood! 

Thank you for another great week.  We love seeing you at our morning gatherings on Mondays and Fridays.  We hope that attending these gatherings allows you to see us recognize our student’s positive attributes, while further building a strong community.  

This last Wednesday was our Back to School Night event.  It was highly attended and we hope that you were able to get to know your child’s teacher better as well as get a clear understanding of curriculum, classroom routines, systems, and expectations.  I appreciate that some of you had conflicting schedules with the time slots, so please reach out to your child’s teacher if you have any questions.  If you have questions for me, please reach out to the office. Thank you for making it a great night.

I also want to thank you for a wonderful event last Friday.  It was great to have such a wonderful community event to kick off the new school year.  Many thanks to the GSF for organizing this fantastic night of fun.  I know there will be many fun events in our future.

I mentioned this briefly at Back to School Night, but please save the date for a “Design a Playground” event to be held in our gym on the night of 9/27/2023 from 6:30-7:30.  The San Rafael City Schools Strategic Planning Team will be organizing the event.  It will be an opportunity to share ideas with the team in regard to what you would like to see in our schoolyard as we head into the future.  I will continue to update you all about this event as it gets closer, but I wanted you to save the date if this was of interest to you.  

Please remember we have a 3-day weekend and will return to school on Tuesday, September 5, 2023.

Have a great weekend!


Safety is always our #1 priority. Please remind your child to walk bikes when on campus. This includes the bridge. 

Did your Zoom call get canceled or maybe find yourself with an hour to spare? Volunteer for yard duty! Your child(ren) love having you on campus and we can always use the help. Lunch is 12:40 - 1:25 daily. 

Toys for Kindergarten Needed

Our kindergarten classrooms are in need of some additional toys for their little Eagles. If you have age-appropriate toys in good condition, please drop them off to the office next week. Examples of toys: legos, blocks, puzzles, doll houses, books, play kitchen items, etc. Thank you for your help!

Have a happy and safe Labor Day weekend. Can wait to see you back at school on Tuesday!


Let’s get ready to thrive! Make your donation today, just click here. You can make a one-time payment or monthly payments. Any way you decide to donate, know you’re making a difference for not only your child(ren) but all 325 kids that attend Glenwood. That’s pretty amazing! 

Our kids are helping to make a difference! Today, we received $91 from a summer lemonade stand, how cool is that! 


Our first event of the year, the Back to School Picnic, was a wonderful evening! It was so great to see so many teachers and families come and hang out. We will be sharing a 2023-24 GSF Events calendar with you in mid-September.
