Glenwood Elementary School’s mission statement:
At Glenwood Elementary School our mission is to:
- Inspire students to achieve their potential as lifelong learners
- Provide an inclusive, safe, caring, and respectful learning environment
- Value individuality and diverse capabilities
- Prepare students for the future so that they may contribute to society with compassion, respect, knowledge and confidence
The community surrounding Glenwood Elementary today is characterized by its diversity. Just south of the Skytrain and denser housing, the Glenwood neighbourhood contains productive farmland and market gardens, light industry, and small acreages. Most of the immediate neighbourhood consists of single-family housing.
Although we are a small school, we provide a comprehensive program for all of our students (kindergarten to grade 7). Our dedicated staff provides a wealth of both academic and extra-curricular opportunities for our students. School activities include monthly assemblies, grade 7 band, primary choir, and sports day. Programs offered outside school hours include: extramural sports teams (cross country, volleyball, basketball, and track), peer mediators, intermediate choir, and friendship club.
