Dear Glover School Families:

Professional Development:  This is a reminder that Wednesday is a professional development early release day.  We will be having the teachers practice our ALICE safety drills from 1:00 -2:00. The teachers will be working on the curriculum from 2:00-3:00.  From 3:00 to 4:00 all grades will be receiving training from Houghton Mifflin Harcourt on changes to the Go Math program.

PTO Glover Science Fair:  The second annual Glover School Science Fair will be held Thursday, April 2nd from 5:00 – 6:00PM in the Glover Gymnasium. Students in K through 3rd grade are invited to create a science project at home and bring it into the fair to present what they've discovered. There is limited capacity (space for 60 projects). There is no fee to participate, but pre-registration is required and certain guidelines must be met. The PTO will email a sign-up genius registration link with more information. 

Teacher Recognition Award:  I have attached the nomination form for the Margaret Voss Howard Teacher Recognition Award.  This award is for one teacher from Marblehead and one teacher from Salem. This teacher is recognized for their excellence and dedication to their school and students.  Enclosed you will find the nomination paper. Nominations can be made from any parent, teacher, or administrator. The nominations must be postmarked no later than April 30.

March Reading Madness:  For the month of March, we will be focusing on developing reading skills throughout the Glover School with our annual March Madness reading activities!

Your child will be bringing home a slip to record reading minutes. The week runs from Monday to Sunday. On Sunday, total up the minutes read and record on the slip, cut off and return to school. Each Monday, each student that brings a slip of 100 minutes or more will be entered to win a raffle to a bookstore. (If you forget, please send the slip in the following week, it will go into the drawing the next week and will add to our grand total.)

Safe Routes:  Thank you for participating in the Safe Routes Survey. I will be meeting with Judith Crocker, the Senior Outreach Coordinator, who is analyzing the results and creating ideas on how to improve the safety of our walkers.

Food Drive: This Month’s Food Drive is off to a good start.  I have attached the grade specific donation requests from the food pantry. . 

Magic Hat:  Our Magic Hat week is March 17th.  Your volunteer hours at the Magic Hat provide our students with incredible enrichment activities.  It is one of the most critical fundraisers that the PTO has.

If you can donate one hour of your time it makes a huge difference.  Remember if you bring your student with you their time counts too!

SEPAC:  The Marblehead Student Services Department and the Marblehead SEPAC are pleased to announce our first annual Marblehead Special Education Conference. This jointly developed conference has been created from a perspective of genuine cooperation, shared vision and common goals. We believe in and value working together to support each other and in bringing best practices to our educators and families. Working together, with shared knowledge and trust, our students will win.
