Giving is in Season ALL Year Round!
Did you know that the New Trier Food Pantry provides food and basic necessities to people in need in New Trier Township? Established in 1965, the New Trier Food Pantry serves as a bridge between those who have the ability to give and those who are in need.

Our collection will start on Monday, January 22nd and continue through Monday, January 29th at our three schools. Please take a moment to include your child in the conversation and consider sharing the following items:
SOUTH: cookies and granola bars
WEST: peanut butter and jelly
CENTRAL: cereal and oatmeal – all kinds
Thank you for showing kindness across our township!

Early Childhood Screenings
EARLY CHILDHOOD SCREENINGS
Glencoe School District 35 is offering early childhood screenings for Glencoe children birth through 5 years of age. The screenings are open to Glencoe residents who have concerns about their child’s development in the areas of: speech-language, fine motor skills, concept development, and/or social/emotional growth. Vision and hearing screenings are also provided for children 3 years and older. Please be prepared to describe your concerns regarding your child in the above areas.
Screenings will be held at South School on Tuesday, March 20th and Wednesday, March 21st from 9:00 AM – 1:00 PM, by appointment only.
We ask that children participate in all components of the screening. These screenings are being conducted in an effort to identify children who may benefit from special education services and/or consultation during early development. Please note, the screening is not designed to determine kindergarten readiness. To make an appointment, please contact Kim Badie in the Pupil Services Office at (847) 835-7838.
