Hello,

Happy spring!  Now if the weather would start to cooperate, that would be great!  

On behalf of Glen Lake students and staff, I'd like to thank the voters of Goffstown.  Your support at the polls is much appreciated.  We will continue to work to get the most out of every dollar as we meet the needs of our young learners.

Tonight is our Family STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) Night at the school from 6-7:30 pm.  As has become our custom, a sensory friendly room will be available for children who would be better served by a quieter, less crowded experience.  I hope to see you there!

Kindergarten registration for next year is in full swing!  If you haven't already, please get registration paperwork in by the end of the month in order to have your preference for the AM or PM session considered.  See below for more information.  An information night for parents of incoming kindergartners will be held on May 17th.  More information will be sent to parents of registered students in April.  

Upcoming Dates:

March 

Thursday, March 23rd -  Family STEM Night 6:00 to 7:30

Thursday, March 30th -  2nd Trimester Progress Reports sent home

April

Thursday, April 20th - GLSP Meeting (Nominations)

Monday-Friday, April 24-28 - Vacation week, no school

May

Wednesday, May 17th - Incoming Kindergarten Parent Info Night

 

All the best,

Kindergarten is a half-day program. The morning session runs from 8:45 to 11:15 am, and the afternoon session runs from 12:30 to 3:00 pm Monday through Friday following the Goffstown School District calendar. Parents will be able to indicate their preference for AM or PM session on the enrollment paperwork. If parent requests exceed session capacity, a lottery will be used to determine those students who will be placed in the session.

AM transportation to the school is available to kindergarten students via their neighborhood bus. There is no mid-day transportation provided by the school district. However for those parents needing extended care, several community day-care providers do offer transportation mid-day to and from their programs. PM students may take advantage of their neighborhood bus for transportation home at the end of the day.

 

The Glen Lake School provides a learning environment that enables children to acquire cognitive, social, emotional, and motor skills that are the foundation for all future learning. Such an environment is based upon the following beliefs: 

Volunteer Fingerprinting

FingerprintSAU #19 continues to host fingerprinting opportunities throughout the school year on the first Wednesday of each month from 9:00 am to 12:00 noon. Volunteers do not need to make an appointment during these open times, just check in with the receptionist at the SAU office. You will need a photo identification and a personal check or money order for $20.75 made payable to State of NH - Criminal Records (which per-Goffstown policy can be reimbursed once you document five hours of volunteer time). Cash payment will no longer be accepted.
