#choosekind

posted Dec 15, 2017, 11:25 AM by Glocester Webmaster   [ updated Dec 18, 2017, 7:17 AM ]

The fifth grade at West Glocester as part of their #choosekind theme this year, has donated $408 to schools in need. The fifth graders created and sold bookmarks to raise the funds. They located two schools in need through DonorsChoose.org, an online fundraising website. Dick's Sporting Goods matched the donations. One of the schools requested performance shorts for their dance team and it was fulfilled using the donation from the fifth graders at West! Here is the link to the DonorsChoose site with pictures of the students receiving their new performance shorts! Great job 5th graders at West. You have made a difference in many peoples lives by choosing to be kind!

Hi everyone. Cookies and Cocoa with Santa is ON!!! We are super excited that Santa may be sledding in on a little bit of snow, but the bulk of the inclement weather will be AFTER the reindeer fly off.

IMPORTANT - Calendar Changes

posted Sep 6, 2017, 6:36 AM by Glocester Webmaster   [ updated Sep 6, 2017, 6:36 AM ]

All Parents and Families:

    

Due to some confusion surrounding the Federal vs State observance of the Veteran's Day holiday and some busing issues, our school calendar will need to be revised. The federal government is celebrating Veteran’s Day on Friday, November 10th but RI will observe the holiday on Monday, November 13th.  

    

As a result, we will need to revise our 2017-18 school calendar.  We will change our observance of the holiday to Monday, November 13.  School will be in session on Friday, November 10.  

    

In addition, this means the Early Release Day will be changed to November 6th.   Parent Conferences will be held November 6th instead of November 13th; same time 1:30-6:30 pm.


We apologize for the confusion and inconvenience this has caused.  Please call the school with any questions.


Thank you,

Ms Zambarano
