8th Grade Career Exploration Day

On January 31 eighth graders explored careers at 8th Grade Career Exploration Day.  Students visited booths from 17 local businesses. They heard from Glencoe 35 alumnus Mr. Gabe Gould, a regenerative farmer and owner/executive director of Soil and Soul Farm. This event supports the Illinois PaCE Framework, preparing students for their futures.  

Celebrating Music 

Congratulations to our 6th grade musicians who showcased their talents in their winter concert. Thank you to our music teachers Ms. Drafta, Ms. Hanna, Ms. Loos, and Mr. Pickett for their work in organizing the event. Music is an integral part of our strategic plan in advancing teaching and learning. 

The Art of Argument

The Central School Debate team participated in its first meet of 2023-24 season at New Trier's Northfield campus. D35 brought ten Novice and three Varsity teams, totaling thirty-seven student participants. We competed against approximately 100 other debaters taking second in Varsity and taking second in Novice. 

Cultural Appreciation through Art

Eighth grade students sculpt sugar skulls in art. These are a cultural representation of those used in Dia de los Muertos. This hands-on activity not only enhances their artistic skills but also deepens their appreciation of this significant cultural tradition. 

COLLABORATIVE LEARNING

Our school's culture fosters an environment conducive to shared learning experiences. In sixth grade, students work together on social studies projects, delving into class hierarchy in ancient civilizations.

GO SPARTANS

Central students participate in PE class daily. Incorporating movement throughout the day supports the health and wellness of our students and aligns with our strategic goals.

Celebrating Our Community

In the late 1970’s, the Glencoe Board of Education chose to reorganize the district from four neighborhood schools to three age-centered buildings. 

District 35 educates the whole child to...

…maximize creative and critical thinking skills.
…fully challenge and realize physical, social, and cognitive abilities.
…nurture unique learning styles, interests, strengths, and pace.
…provide a solid foundation for the next phase of education and for learning throughout life.

Celebrating Our Community

District 35 views education as experiences best served by coordinated efforts of parents and the school staff.  Parent involvement through generous support of the Glencoe PTO, volunteers in classrooms and ongoing communication with teachers and school personnel are welcomed and encouraged.  Teachers in grade level and/or subject area teams work closely side-by-side in their planning, decision-making, implementation, and assessment.  Together, we nurture our greatest natural resource – our children.

Growing Every Heart and Mind

The District 35 curriculum is broadly based, reflecting an interest in the academic, social, emotional, artistic, and physical development of children. Problem-solving and decision-making are encouraged through the curriculum and informal situations, such as recess or class meetings in the lower grades and integrated activities at the upper levels.
