Mrs. Cabrina Williams-Leneau: Hello Glenwood family and friends! Thanks for visiting our new website and welcome to the upcoming 2019-2020 academic school year. I am very excited to begin my fifth year as the proud principal of Glenwood Elementary...Home of the Tigers! My staff and I are very lucky to be able to educate the finest students in the Waukegan area and surrounding communities.

Know that the teachers have been working very hard over the summer to ensure that all students get the learning experiences that they need and deserve. In a perfect world, every kid will walk in eager to learn and willing to work, but we know sometimes things are different. But that is okay because my staff and I have been committed to motivate our students. So they can understand the opportunity that they have before them.

We will continue to elevate the rigor of the academic expectations that we have here. However we will focus more on building relationships with each and every one of our students. We will work hard to develop ways to have their social and emotional needs met, so that they feel comfortable and are willing and more open to receive the education that they will receive here at Glenwood.

Upon reviewing the data this summer, I know that we are having a steady growth, slow and steady. However, this year what we're gonna do, we're gonna revise it a little. We're gonna push a little harder and grow a lot faster. After all, as a part of our Vision, we tell our students everyday  they will be armed with the beliefs and skills to conquer the world, as long as they are here at Glenwood.

So to my parents, research says if you're involved things happen. You're involvement has a positive effect on your student’s academic achievement. So we are welcoming you, inviting you to be here. Please come in. Please join the Parent Teacher Organization. My Instructional Leadership Team, or just volunteer on a daily basis or as much as you can. Either way, your participation will definitely help us reach our goals. Please note that I am again very excited for this new school year.

Please remember to use use our website and like us on Facebook so that you can get any information that you need about what's happening here at Glenwood. Just know, too, that our students that come through this building know that if they believe it, they can achieve it.

Thank you and I look forward to seeing you very soon.
