Dear GLD Family,
I am excited to announce that Glenn L Downs Elementary School’s name has been changed to Glenn L. Downs Social Sciences Academy. Social Sciences will be integrated across all content areas creating an environment that celebrates diversity and inclusion. As a staff, we are energized and deeply committed to making a positive difference in the lives of our students. We are dedicated to providing our students with the skills necessary to ensure they reach their potential as global citizens and to be in a position to give back to the world more than they take. Our goal is to nurture culture, community and citizenship in our students.
There are two things about our GLD community that makes this a very special place. One is we stick together. We have so many deep family ties and connections to one another that truly make us a “familia”. Second is when we do have events and activities at school, the GLD familia shows up! As we begin the new school year, this energizes us and we will use this energy to create the best environment for our scholars.
We do provide a Before Care Program from 7:00AM- 8:30AM. There will be communication sent out regarding registration soon.
You are invited to become an active participant in our school community through volunteering, Please contact Liliana Medina, our amazing parent liaison to learn more! (623-691-4200)
We also encourage you to attend and support school events. We are partners in your child's education as One Team, Una Familia. We look forward to working together to make certain that our students have the skills necessary to reach their potential. Thank you for choosing us!
Your Very Proud Principal
