Glen Haven Scoop: Week of May 9, 2016

Thank you to our excellent Staff Appreciation Committee for all their hard work last week! I know the teachers had a great time! If you haven’t seen any of the pics – head to our Facebook page! Like your favorite pics – I’m sure everyone will LOVE the VIP pics (be sure to show your kids pictures of their teachers being silly!)

Peace, Love, and Books! The book fair is coming back to Glen Haven and we need parent volunteers to help run the store. Here’s a link to the sign up genius.

If you haven’t heard…. AlphaBest will be taking over before and after care at Glen Haven. For more information, head here. Registration opens May 12.

At our most recent PTA meeting, we learned about a new math program called Reflex, which is supposed to increase math fact fluency. You can learn more here: https://www.reflexmath.com/ The program costs about $3,000, and the teachers have asked for our help in funding it.

Did you miss your opportunity to buy Spirit Wear this year? Never fear – we will be selling online later this month! More info coming soon!
