SUBJECT: October Newsletter: Happy Fall Y'all! ūüéÉ

October 2021

Dear GWL Families,

TRICK OR TREAT! The SCA is giving out plenty of treats!  October is already here, can you believe it?!

You hopefully received information from the SCA already this year, but we wanted to take this moment to fully introduce the organization and how everyone can get involved.  The SCA plays a vital role in the additional enrichment programs for our children to enjoy throughout the year, so more community involvement results in a better experience for all students at Glenwood Landing. In an effort to keep everyone informed, the SCA will send out monthly newsletters for all upcoming events and activities, and we host member meetings.  The SCA also makes this information available on our SCA website, and you can follow us on Instagram @gwlsca, Facebook and REMIND so you won't miss a thing!

Scroll down and check out what's happening in October. 

Warm Regards,

Lynne Ford & Ramona Leonard

Mrs. Finder will be in attendance and will present a brief overview of the RULER program that is used at GWL.

Overview of Glenwood Landing School‚Äôs Approach to Social and Emotional Learning ‚Äď RULER¬†

As part of our ongoing efforts to continue to provide the most impactful experiences for the children and families we serve, we have continue to implement RULER. RULER is an evidence-based approach to social and emotional learning developed by the Yale Center for Emotional Intelligence. Glenwood Landing School has been using this approach for the past six years to help children understand and manage their feelings in order to make more responsible decisions, have stronger relationships, and perform better in school.
