Vaping - What Parents Need to Know

Are you aware of all the facts regarding vaping? We urge our parents to review these resources to learn more details of the harmful impact of vaping. If you have a middle school son or daughter, please take time to review these together. Biobehavioral scientist Suchitra Krishnan-Sarin explains what you’re actually inhaling when you vape and the impact to your body systems. While this topic will be covered in our health classes at Central School, it is important that we all know the facts and support healthy choices for our youth.

Share Your Shoes

Throughout the 2019-2020 school year, District 35 is pleased to partner with the Glencoe PTO and GJHP as we collect gently used and new shoes for children ages 0-14 to donate to Cradles to Crayons. A collection bin is located in each school entrance. Thank you for helping us to support this incredible organization that serves children in need throughout Chicago!

See Something Say Something

We are dedicated to ensuring the safety of and compassion for our students, where we help our children develop social-emotional skills to become self-aware and in tune with their environments. Such efforts go beyond the schools and require our entire Glencoe community. To support this goal, we are proud to continue the See Something, Say Something campaign in collaboration with the Village of Glencoe, Glencoe Park District, Glencoe Public Library, and Family Service of Glencoe.

Parents, teachers, and students are encouraged to seek help if they see someone in need or something that doesn’t feel right within the schools and community. Within the schools, we will reinforce this message in class meetings and advisory experiences. We must work together to care for the safety and well-being of all members of our community.

In the event of a true crisis or emergency, please dial 911 and Glencoe Public Safety will be the immediate response team. If you see something related to our schools, student(s) or staff member(s) that warrants additional attention, please contact the appropriate school principal.

South School Principal: Dr. Kelly Zonghetti
West School Principal: Dr. David Rongey
Central School Principal: Dr. Ryan Mollet
