Teacher’s Report: Mrs. Jerke

  • The school year is off to a great start and everyone is now in their normal routines.
  • Classes have been incorporating 2nd step into morning meetings and utilizing it throughout the day.
  • ESTEM day was successful all around.
  • The Fun Run was also a successful event again this year. Students greatly enjoyed the spirit week in anticipation of the Fun Run.
  • Mrs. Jerke’s class is doing research on flexible seating for classrooms and would like to present it to the PTC mid-November.


Principal Report: Mrs. Molitor

  • ESTEM and Fun Run were both great events this past month. Students and staff enjoyed both.
  • Students have been able to pick pumpkins and potatoes from the garden.
  • The custodians are teaching students about recycling in the classrooms.
  • 5th graders will be going to Wolf Ridge soon.
  • Mrs. Ryan has been bringing Bully Awareness to each classroom.
  • Classrooms have been reviewing “Be safe, be respectful, be responsible” and reflecting on behavior and choices with it.
  • Each classroom is having a chance to update the Glendale Facebook page with their learning experiences and allowing others to get to know each class. They will continue this through the year.
  • Flexible seating was discussed and is being researched. Mrs. Molitor is reviewing Shakopee High School and another school. The goal is to gather as much research and then find options that would best fit the students at Glendale.


Treasurer’s Report: Josh Mueller

  • $1900 in teacher allocations has been dispersed thus far. Josh will reach out to teachers after the holidays if they have not submitted any requests to see if they still plan on utilizing their funds for their classes.
  • Classroom easels were purchased.
  • Profits from back to school night and the Fun Run are being totaled, but are looking positive.

School Store Report: Nicole Boyles

  • Twenty-Eight 5th graders applied for Glenmart, 16 will be selected.
  • Coordinators will be looking at those who applied and see if students are involved in other activities such as junior naturalists, etc. Invites will go out by Oct 15.
  • Water bottles were ordered and synch bags are being looked into via T-shirts and More, and the Laker store.
  • Headbands and beanies were discussed and will be looked into.
  • Placement of the school store and timing were also discussed. Possible locations include the entryway or lost & found area.
  • Having the store open from 9:20-9:45 AM sounds like the best time to not disrupt learning.
