Principal’s Message

Dear Glen Lea Elementary School Families:

On behalf of our faculty and staff, I would like to welcome you and your family to Glen Lea Elementary School. I am looking forward to serving the community to create a positive learning environment where families partner with our school to build strong academic students who are leaders in 21st century skills with confidence, who take initiative, and work cooperatively to get along with others. Our Jan Richardson Reading program allows each child to be taught at their instructional level and encourages routine reading at home. This is pivotal to educational growth in all subjects. You are a valued member of our educational team. Your role in assisting with homework, volunteering in the classroom or at home, attendance at school activities, and participation in PTA are all fundamental to the success of our school/home partnership. Together we can contribute to a bright and rewarding future for our children. Parents often ask what they can do to support their child’s education. Clearly, reading with your child at home is paramount to positive learning! The policies contained in this booklet are important for setting the proper atmosphere for the educational process. Please review these with your children. By becoming familiar with this information, we can work collectively for a positive school climate. Together we can ensure that our students will experience a productive and successful year. I look forward working with each of you whether you are returning or new to Glen Lea Elementary, where we strive to do things the ROAR way!

Please review the school-wide discipline plan and Code of Conduct. We have included a copy of the discipline plan in this handbook as a gentle reminder as well. I hope that you will review it thoroughly with your child. Please be aware that we will begin consistently enforcing all outlined consequences (both positive and negative) on the first day of school. It is important that students come to school ready to learn and get along.

If you have any questions, call the school office at 228-2725. I am excited to have the honor to serve with you throughout the school year.


Ms. Tomeka Campbell
