Start of school year is approaching quickly at GSL

To the Editor:
Here we are in the middle of August, and about three weeks from the start of school. As many of you know, construction is in full force at GSL. While there is still much to do in a short amount of time, we are confident that we will be ready to open school on Wednesday, Sept. 6, 2017. This is a reminder of the change in our calendar. Sept. 5 will now be an open house day, and the first official start of the school year will be Wednesday, Sept. 6.
If you take a short drive around our school campus in Glencoe, you will see a lot of change. With the construction, the last few steps are being completed in our new playground; inside, floors are being finished, and our classroom furniture is being delivered … all signs that school will be starting very soon. Fall activities and practices are now under way; with all that is going on, it is great to see the kids back at school preparing for the new year. I hope everybody is as excited as I am to get things going. It’s been a great summer, but fall is coming and along with that the start of the 2017-2018 school year.
Finally, I want to say thank you to all of the people and businesses that showed up for the Panther Association 13th annual golf tournament. Your support helps facilitate the many projects our Panther Association leads for our students. Also, a big thank you to all of the volunteers that helped put our new playground together. It is amazing and a wonderful addition to our school. We appreciate all that you do for our schools.
Enjoy the remaining weeks of summer and, as always, enjoy your day, as it is a great day to be a Panther!
