Hello My Name Is...
Glacier Gateway Elementary School
2016 - 17
Dear Parents and Families,
Welcome to Glacier Gateway Elementary School. Our entire staff of teachers, support staff, and I are looking forward to another exciting year of partnering with you to help your children learn and grow.
We are all committed to developing respectful, cooperative relationships with you and your children. Together, we are looking forward to working with you to help your children develop the academic, behavioral, and social skills that will help keep them growing and learning throughout their lives.
Glacier Gateway’s academic schedule is structured to provide the best use of the support and resources we have to offer. There may be times during the day when your child works with a teacher other than their homeroom teacher. We provide enrichment for students who need more academic challenges, intervention for those who need more support, and a positive schoolwide approach to behavior management.
As was the case last year, we are welcoming new teachers, staff members, and families. If you see a new face, please extend them a warm welcome and we will do the same.
Be sure to read the School Handbook that we have sent home with your child. The handbook is designed to be a resource for you. It contains information about school policies, programs, and who to contact if you have questions or concerns. It is important for you and your child to be familiar with this information, so please take time to review and discuss this handbook as a family.
As Principal, I do my best to be available to you when you have questions or concerns. Please do not hesitate to contact me. Thank you for the consistent support you offer our students and our school. Together, we can continue to improve your child’s experience at school, promote learning, and make school a great place to be.
Kathi Yanamura, Principal
