Happy First Day of School!

Way to Go Glen Haven! With all your help (plus the help of our larger community) we were able to raise enough money to bring Reflex Math to Glen Haven.  Kudos to Ms. Caruso and Ms. Fox for spearheading this fundraiser!  I know we are all excited to see Reflex Math in action!

Clothing Drive! Clean out your closets and help support our school!

Reflex Math: We are excited to support third grade teachers Ms. Caruso and Ms. Fox as they fundraise to bring Reflex Math to the school. What is Reflex Math? It’s a computer game that helps kids improve their math facts. You can help two ways – do either or both!

* Donate $ to the Cause: Head over to their Donors Choose page (it’s like GoFundMe for teachers) and make a donation.
* Donate Clothing to the Cause: Clean out your closets and help bring Reflex Math to our school at the same time! The PTA, Ms. Caruso and Ms Fox will be jointly hosting a fundraiser, collecting clothing and small household items for the Unique Thrift Store in Wheaton. Bring your stuff to the school by September 12. The Unique Thrift Store will then donate $ back to the PTA, based on the weight of the clothing and items donated!

Pretty simple way to help out our students! Here is a form.
