    Greeting Parents and Families of Glenn Dale Elementary School,

    It’s that time of year again and I can’t wait to welcome every child and staff member back to our building for what I know will be a great year for our school community during the  2019-2020 school year! The staff at Glenn Dale have been working very hard to prepare for an amazing school year. I am excited and reenergized at the newly painted walls and the fresh look it brings to Glenn Dale Elementary for the new school year. This last year was the most amazing learning experience for me as a principal and I am excited to open the doors to our school and leverage what I have learned to enhance both the teaching and learning experience for each of our students.  I am confident our year will be filled with many great adventures and academic learning activities to enrich our school climate and provide our students with challenging and engaging opportunities that will positively impact student achievement. I will continue to work diligently to ensure all of your children have the best possible experiences and education while at Glenn Dale Elementary.

    We look forward to opening the year with a commitment from every family to collaborate with us to ensure the success of every child. I am committed to the partnership with the parents and a community that thrives on transparency and dedication. Part of that commitment involves collaboration with every family and community partners-both new and oldI. It is extremely important to me to be visible and accessible to students, family, and community members. I believe that when strong partnerships between home and school are created, students excel and succeed in school. I hope that each parent and teacher will consider joining our PTA this year so that we can make our students and ourselves #PGCPS PROUD. It is only with the help of parents and teachers that the good news of all that is happening at Glenn Dale Elementary School can be shared. With our Back to School Night scheduled for September 12th at 6:00 pm, we hope that you will join us and leverage this event as an opportunity to stop by and meet with the staff and PTA to learn more about their aims to support our amazing school.

    While many things have changed over the course of the last year, one thing remains unchanged and that is our unwavering commitment to being the best partner to our families in support of our students.  It is imperative that we continue to create a strong relationship between home and school. Through dedication and partnership, can we ensure academic success to each scholar.  As partners in education, I value open communication and I am eager to hear from you about what matters to you about your student’s success at Glenn Dale Elementary School. I want you to share your concerns and take part in all of our celebrations. Through our combined efforts we can build a network to support our students during this school year. I strongly believe that parental involvement is an essential component to scholar success.

    In closing, I  eagerly look forward to greeting each and everyone of you throughout the first month of school.   I’d like to invite you to visit our school’s website. This will serve as a resource tool for all upcoming events, student/parent handbook, important reminders and you can catch up on all the wonderful things our students and teachers are doing. It remains an honor and privilege to serve as your principal.

    Educationally yours,

    Heather A. Porterfield
