Girls on the Run Club Coaches Needed for Next Year!

I’m Laura Knox Lee, and my daughter Madison will be in the 4th grade next year as a new student at Glacier Ridge. I’m planning to coach the 'Girls on the Run' Club at Glacier Ridge in the Fall of 2017. This is a program for girls in 3rd-5th grade with a mission of inspiring girls to be joyful, healthy and confident using a fun, experience-based curriculum that creatively integrates running. I currently am the head coach for the program at Scottish Corners so I have first hand experience about the program and I know what a positive program it is for the coaches and girls!

I’m reaching out since I need help to make this happen. For each club there must be two head coaches and additional assistant coaches to help through the September-November 2017 season. The head coaches must be women, but the assistant coaches can be men, so there is room for everyone!

If you’d like to learn more, even if you just have questions but aren’t ready to commit, please reach out to me at [email protected]. Thank you in advance for your consideration.

The fall season will start the week of Monday, September 11th and run through the week of Monday, November 13th with the Fall 2017 5K on Saturday, Nov. 18th, 2017.

School supply orders can be placed online only at; use account 24760. Be sure to select the kit for the grade level your child will attend for the 17-18 school year. Schoolkidz also offers add-on items such as backpacks, water bottles and lunch bags, however those are strictly optional.

All online orders are due by Friday, June 2. After that date, the link will be unavailable. School supply lists for each grade level will be posted on the GRE website for those who choose not to purchase the online kit.

Student Leadership Recycling Committee

Student Leadership Recycling Committee

Fourth grade members of the Leadership Recycling Committee have been generating ideas for how to promote and encourage recycling at Glacier Ridge. Increasing recycling in the cafeteria has been their recent focus. To support their work, they met with the head custodian to determine what common items from school lunches could be recycled. They created an eye-catching poster for the commons and a video for the morning announcements to increase awareness and interest in recycling with Glacier Ridge students.
