Vaping - What Parents Need to Know
Are you aware of all the facts regarding vaping? We urge our parents to review these resources to learn more details of the harmful impact of vaping. If you have a middle school son or daughter, please take time to review these together. Biobehavioral scientist Suchitra Krishnan-Sarin explains what you’re actually inhaling when you vape and the impact to your body systems. While this topic will be covered in our health classes at Central School, it is important that we all know the facts and support healthy choices for our youth.

Mindfulness Parent Event
Thursday, September 26th from 6:30-7:30pm at Central School
As our schools launch our District-wide initiative to bring mindfulness lessons into our classrooms, we are excited to offer an evening with Ramaa Krishnan, Founder and Executive Director of Grow Through Mindfulness (GTM) for our parents. Grow Through Mindfulness is the not-for-profit organization that will bring mindfulness to our teachers and children throughout the Glencoe Schools. Ramaa will introduce you to MINDFULNESS - what it is, why it is so important for our well-being, and how the practice of it can transform the home and relationships in the family.
Come enjoy an evening of Mindfulness for yourself and support your children by allowing it to become part of your family life. Please RSVP here so we may plan for the final location in Central School.
Share Your Shoes
Throughout the 2019-2020 school year, District 35 is pleased to partner with the Glencoe PTO and GJHP as we collect gently used and new shoes for children ages 0-14 to donate to Cradles to Crayons. A collection bin is located in each school entrance. Thank you for helping us to support this incredible organization that serves children in need throughout Chicago!
School Improvement Half-Days
As a reminder, you will see the new option of two School Improvement half-days on our 2019-2020 calendar. We appreciated the input of our parents as we planned for this time and ensured these two days were placed before a long weekend. Students will attend school for a half-day on these days. Our teachers will be engaged in professional development experiences for the afternoon sessions.
