Core Values

Student Core Values:

The integrity of the Glenwood Elementary School is built on a set of Core Values:

Be Respectful
Be Ready
Be Safe
We develop and promote our core values in school, at home and in the wider community believing they enable us to be capable and responsible citizens of the world. Each of these values -- respectful, ready, safe -- are practiced throughout the school year.

Our goal is to help students and their families better visualize, recognize and support the development of these values in children.

Staff Core Values:

We strive to have strong instructional leaders who continually monitor student progress and have high expectations for students. A challenging curriculum meeting the varied needs and learning styles of our students will be maintained. We seek to develop positive self-images and the acceptance of cultural differences.
