Welcome to Glyndon Elementary

We are committed to excellence in education.  We are dedicated to educating the whole child and attribute our achievement to high academic standards, an exceptional and talented faculty and staff, an effective values and behavioral program, and our phenomenal parental and community support!

Our primary focus has and will continue to be developing our students into proficient readers, developing their competencies in mathematics, and striving to create life-long learners.  As a result, our test scores demonstrate that our students are doing an outstanding job of applying academic skills and processes in meaningful ways.  Challenging our students to be the very best they can be, preparing them for the future, and ensuring their success are our top priorities.

Glyndon Elementary School is a learning community - teachers, students, administrators, and parents - dedicated to continuous progress and personal growth to model our belief that the true value of education is to create life-long learners who find joy in the learning process.

I am proud to be a part of this phenomenal teaching and learning environment where everyone, everyday, is experiencing exciting discoveries.  I encourage you to visit us so that you can experience first-hand the powerful teaching and learning that are taking place here at Glyndon Elementary School.

What's Happening

Glyndon Elementary School

 A Green School

GreenGlyndon Elementary has received recertification for the second time as a Green School!  Students explore the outside world and learn how to be part of environmental projects. These projects include the continued care and expansion of butterfly gardens, native plant gardens, and habitat restoration. Students in the intermediate grade levels have learned over the years how to plant and then pass that skill on to our younger primary students. The plant identification needed for weeding has also been passed along to each grade level so that gardens can be maintained. It has been exciting to add bluebird houses to the edge of the original no mow zone, and plans are underway to add an additional no mow zone to our school grounds.  Students participate in seasonal schoolyard litter cleanup days with each grade cleaning a portion of the school grounds.  Students sort the collected litter and then graph their findings.

            We have continued to emphasize recycling and the reduction of waste throughout the year.   In addition, students participate in No-Waste Wednesdays in order to reduce the amount of waste in the lunchroom on Wednesdays.  In art, students complete projects which reuse recycled materials to create a variety of masterpieces.   Throughout the year, students complete seasonal recycling projects related to autumn, winter, and spring.  We continue to recycle ink cartridges and have initiated special recycling of clothing.

            Energy conservation has also been a continuing part of our total school program.  Students have made light switch reminders, computer reminders, and have completed energy audits.  They have also been responsible for turning out lights when they leave their classrooms. Assemblies have focused on the need for energy conservation and we have also graphed our school’s energy use by using the information on the BGE statements.

            Glyndon is proud of the efforts our students make to keep our school environment green. We look forward to more opportunities to increase environmental awareness and inspire lifelong habits that conserve our environment.
