Girl/Boy Scouts

 

Boy Scouts

Boy Scouts of America celebrates its 103rd year of existence in 2013, and Glendale has a large and active Cub Scout troop. We are part of the Middle Tennessee Council and the James E. West district. Glendale's Pack 800 is an INCLUSIVE Pack - all boys are welcome to participate. There are Cub Scout dens for grades 1 through 5 with regular meetings. Cub Scouts emphasizes character development in a non-competitive environment, but it is also a lot of fun. 

To learn more about scouting at Glendale, contact Scoutmaster Luke Geise at lgeise@att.net


Girl Scouts

 

For almost 100 years, the Girl Scout movement has been changing the lives of girls and improving communities locally and around the world. As the Girl Scouts of Middle Tennessee approaches this monumental landmark, we can look back and see how the foundation of Girl Scouting is ever present in today’s Girl Scout experience. By providing relevant programming for today’s girl, we cultivate leadership through exciting activities that challenge girls to take on new journeys.

Glendale has Brownie Troops for grades 1-4.

First Grade: Leah Coles (leahcoles1@gmail.com)
Second Grade: contact Julie Brown (juliesbrown@gmail.com)
Third Grade: contact Katie Leniski (kleniski@gmail.com)
Fourth Grade: contact Stephanie Bixler (mabstb@bellsouth.net)

 

 

Encore

 

The Encore Program is a regular education program that is designed to nurture, challenge, and develop the potential of gifted and talented students. Intellectually gifted and academically talented students are those whose intellectual abilities and potential for achievement are so outstanding that they need special attention to meet their educational needs. Eligibility is determined based on demonstration of advanced classroom performance, superior results on a national-normed achievement test, and evidence of higher level thinking as measured by assessment of abstract reasoning and logical thinking.

The Encore Program serves eligible students in kindergarten through sixth grade. Encore classes meet one-half day each week in local schools.

As almost 1/3 of Glendale's students participate in Encore, Glendale has the benefit of a dedicated Encore teacher and classroom.  Ms. Andrea Hale joined Glendale for her first year here in 2010-11. She has been teaching for 21 years, has two Master's degrees and is working on a doctorate. Ms Hale has three teenagers, is a vegetarian, loves to read, and loves going to the movies.  She also used to live in Bergamo Italy and loves traveling.  Andrea Hale is reachable at andrea.hale@mnps.org

This year's units of study are available for download here:
Kindergarten-2nd grade
3rd & 4th grade

 

 

Library

 

Glendale welcomes you to our wonderful library! 
Our librarian extraordinaire, Rebecca Hornsby, started at Glendale in 2010. 

Our library media center is a bright and busy place! Students may visit the library anytime to browse for books, check out materials, or work on the computers. Teachers bring their students for collaborative lessons that incorporate both information literacy skills and classroom curriculum. The library is a very welcoming place! Parents and grandparents are always encouraged to volunteer. Please contact our library media specialist, Mrs. Hornsby, in person or by emailing here HERE. 

Glendale has an on-line book catalog! See it HERE.

Mrs. Hornsby has created a portaportal of helpful links for students and will be adding to this during the year. Students can access from any computer. Guests can log-in with the ID "glendalelibrary". Access it HERE.

Be a Library God or Goddess! Opportunities to volunteer in the library media center: assist students during morning check out on a weekly or monthly basis, help return books to shelves, and/or help with either of the book fairs (promotion, set up, sales, or clean up). Contact Mrs. Hornsby HERE if you are interested.
