Principal’s Message

Welcome to Glenwood Elementary’s website!

Glenwood is a small K to 7 school (sustaining just under 200 students) with huge school spirit and an amazing sense of community! We’re located at the corner of 208th Street and 24th Avenue in the Fernridge area of Langley. We have 9 divisions in our little school. The original two-room school, our “Heritage Building” is not currently in use.  We have two portable units on site which house two divisions.

Glenwood’s amazing PAC provides ongoing support to our school, and organizes fund raisers, hot lunches, hot dog days, the Scholastic Book Fair, Pumpkin Patch and Fun Nights. Their efforts are tireless!

Our hardworking and dedicated teachers and support staff work hard to support the learning needs of all Glenwood students. We appreciate the support of parents who monitor home reading programs, offer support with assignments, and check in regularly with classroom teachers.

At monthly assemblies we recognize our students for their great efforts. Younger students receive certificates and prizes for participating in the Home Reading program. All students throughout the school are eligible to receive recognition for exemplifying good citizenship – awards are given out when a Glenwood student ROARS (Respect Others And Respect Selves).  Recipients are nominated monthly by their classroom teachers.  (Note:  Due to COVID19 health concerns monthly assemblies were discontinued). We look forward to bringing back assemblies again this year.

Our older students in Divisions 1, 2, 3 and 4 buddy up with younger students in Divisions 5, 6, 7, 8 and 9 to support them in buddy reading and help out with other fun activities. Older students also volunteer as classroom monitors at recess on rainy days and during eating period at lunch time.

Visitors to our school are quick to point out the “wonderful feeling” and “welcoming spirit” that prevails at our school “where students come first.” We hope you’ll return to our website from time to time to learn about the great things that take place regularly and to find out about upcoming events.
