Student Leadership Opportunities
Glenn Stephens' students are leaders! You can be a leader by being part of Student Council or a Peaceful Playground helper. We also have Lunchroom Helpers.
Soaring Eagle All students K-3 at some point during the school year will be chosen from their class to be Soaring Eagles. Their picture will be posted in the school and they get to have lunch with the Principal in the LMC.
Technology and Computers
Each classroom has at least two computers for you to use (in addition to the time you spend in the computer lab). Additional computers are available in the library. The school has a classroom set of Alpha Pro keyboards that are used for learning keyboarding.
Sponsored by the PTO, each classroom creates a fair booth for a Saturday filled with games, prizes, food, and fun.
Field trips give you a chance to take learning outside your school environment.
You can find yourself sledding at Garner Park, snow shoeing, rollerblading, bowling at a local bowling center and even playing Quidditch.
As a fifth grade student, you can volunteer to serve the students of the school by assisting with the after school Safety Patrol Program.
Students have the opportunity to participate in the Spring Talent Show, either on the stage or as part of the production crew. This annual event has become a school highlight. Performances include singing, dancing, comedy, cultural and ethnic performances, musicians, and magic. Start planning your act now!
Families and students can buy books at the Book Fair. Books can also be purchased and donated to the school library.
Fifth graders have a chance to participate in our Strings program. You'll learn lots of songs and will participate in the All City Concert and one recital at school.
This is a great way to share and recycle books that you have at home but don't read anymore. Kids bring in books and then each class gets to visit the Book Share to pick out "new" books to take home.
Talented and Gifted Programs and Additional Opportunities
Interested students compete in spelling bees, geography bees, or a chess tournament.
Bring your family members in to see your work and your classroom at our Fall ice cream social/open house. In addition don't miss our movie night, science fair talent show, school dance and other evening activities.
Remember, you're "At Home At Glenn Stephens Elementary School!"
