District 35, the Glencoe PTO and GJHP has partnered to support Cradles to Crayons for the 2017-2018 school year. Nearly 200,000 children in Chicago live in poverty. We have decided to support a sustained effort to help. We will be collecting the following during the school year:
• We welcome you to share NEW socks & underwear in the collection boxes at each school (up to age 12 for sizing). This will continue all year and is a priority need for Cradles to Crayon.
• Fall extended collection will occur November 13th - 17th. More details to come as we will advertise specific items needed.
• Spring extended collection will occur April 16th-20th.
• Please click here if you would like to document your donation for tax purposes.
In addition, our third, fourth, and seventh grade students will have the opportunity to visit the Cradles to Crayon Giving Factory and see the entire cycle of change. The students will be actively engaged in all steps of the engagement process as they work stations in the factory to prepare items for children in Chicago. Watch the school news for details about these special trips for our students.
Thank you in advance for supporting our efforts and finding ways to encourage your children to become involved.

October 26th from 9:30 am - 11:00 am
Within District 35, we value ongoing, respectful communication between home and school to ensure a strong partnership for the benefit of our students. Questions regarding assignments, student’s progress or other school-related issues should be directed first to the classroom teacher, the primary source of information. We appreciate our parents taking this first step for us to work together in a constructive manner.
While email is an efficient tool to ask simple questions, should the topic require more discussion and details, we encourage our parents and teachers to set a mutually agreeable time for a conversation. At times nothing is as effective as a live conversation (via phone or in person) to respectfully work together and hear multiple perspectives. Thank you for your partnership.
We believe it is a responsibility and an obligation of the Glencoe School District to be forthcoming with the community, and we want any potential victims to know how seriously our School Board takes the recent allegations. Should you have firsthand knowledge of information related to this matter, please contact Glencoe Public Safety (847-835-4112).
