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.

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:
