Hello!

Kindergarten Registration has opened for the 18-19 school year!  See the link below to download registration forms.  Students entering kindergarten in September must turn 5 between October 1, 2017 and September 30, 2018.  Kindergarten is a half-day program.  We try to accommodate as many parent/guardian requests for the morning or afternoon session as we can.  To have your preference considered, please turn in your registration forms by March 30th. 

At this time of year we are also accepting preschool role model applications.  The Glen Lake Preschool Program is a developmental program for three and four year olds where children with and without special needs have the opportunity to play and learn together.  Students who are identified with special needs are placed in classes with typically developing "role model" peers.  Tuition is charged for these role model spots.  For more information and a role model application, please call the school office at 497-3550.  Role model applications are due on Monday, February 19th. Students born between October 1, 2013 and September 30, 2015 are eligible for the preschool program in the 2018-2019 school year.   

A few reminders as we continue to move through this winter...

As we deal with the occasional bout of wintry weather this season, this is just a reminder that when there is a delayed opening there will be no morning session.  If there were ever an early release there would be no afternoon session.  If students wear boots to school, please send them with sneakers/shoes to change into so that they can safely and successfully participate in the activities of the day.   

February vacation is February 26th through March 2nd.  We wish you a great week with your little one!

Kindergarten 100 day is coming up!  As of this writing, if there are no more delays or snow days, the 100th day of school will be Tuesday February 13th for the afternoon session and Friday, February 16th for the morning session.

Valentine's Day will be celebrated on February 14th.  Please remember not to send candy or other food products with your child's Valentines as they cannot be distributed.

Voting Day is Tuesday, March 13th.  Bringing your child to the polls is a great way to teach them about our democratic process.  March 13th is a Teacher Workshop Day; there is no school for students on that day.

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.
