Welcome Back Gleason Lake Families!

Information about your teacher will be made available to families starting at 4:00 p.m. on Monday, August 27, through Skyward Family Access.


Our Open House is on Wednesday, August 29, from 3:30-5:30 p.m. You can come at any time that works for you between 3:30-5:30 p.m. and bring your child with you. You will be able to visit with your teachers and friends; put away school supplies, and sign up for volunteer opportunities.   


New Family Orientation is at 6:30 p.m. on Tuesday, August 28 at 6:30 p.m. in our Commons.


The videos below were created by your teachers as a way to provide an overview of the curriculum and grade level. They are highly informative and take about 6 minutes on average to watch. There is also a specialists' video which highlights each of their content areas. I encourage you to view the video(s) pertinent to your child prior to our Open House and come with questions, if you have them.

Emergency Information Update

To ensure that we have the most current information on your family, and to provide for your child's health and safety while at school, we ask you to complete the Student Contact and Health Information Update in Skyward Family Access prior to the start of every school year.

Visitor Registration System

Visitors will be asked to present a valid state-issued ID or a passport which will be scanned into the visitor registration system. Once entry is approved, the visitor will be issued a badge that identifies the guest, the date, and the purpose of his/her visit. A visitor's badge will not be necessary for those who visit our school simply to drop off an item in the office or pick up paperwork.

Kindergarten Curriculum Presentations

Kindergarten Curriculum Presentations will be Thursday, September 13 at 5:30 p.m. in your kindergartner's classroom.


Volunteer Needs

Please sign up to be a Health Screening Volunteer on October 2,3, or 4. Sign up sheets will be in every classroom at Open House.
