Our Michele Munoz is featured in the linked article above showing her insight and leadership to shift the focus and learning in Math.

From PE Teachers:

Do you have any gently used clean tennis shoes that you could donate to Glenwood? Our PE teachers are looking for donations to help students that do not have proper shoes for gym class.  If you have any that you would like to donate, we would love to have them. 

We are also in need of leggings and sweatpants (anything stretchy) for our students that may need a change of clothes.

Thank you for your support!!
