School Official Point of View

On December 7th, 8th, and 9th, the elementary music program in Charter Oak gave outstanding performances at the Royal Oak Gym. Monday night Glen Oak and Badillo had over 300 students performing and over 500 parents attending. The same numbers were evident on Tuesday night with Cedargrove, and then again on Wednesday night with Willow and Washington. The students sang many fun and beautiful holiday songs, displaying some amazing harmonies along with their singing. The night was truly a great success and showed how much the children in Charter Oak love to sing and perform.

Glen Oak had it's first PTA family event with a Meet the Principal Luau. Families were treated a dinner and the Kona Shaved Ice Truck was there for a cool treat after. It was a great night filled with many families. Be sure to follow Glen Oak on Twitter for the latest updates @Glen_Oak_Eagles.

The technology team set up the new Makerbot Printer and Scanner at Badillo in November. There was a learning curve but they got the hang of it. They then proceeded to Glen Oak later that day to set up Glen Oak's equipment! MakerBot is a company that manufactures 3D printers. A "3D printer" sounds like something boring, so MakerBot Industries has chosen an excellent name. A 3D printer is a device that creates physical objects from digital plans. You can fill it with ABS (what Lego blocks are made of) or PLA (biodegradable and made of corn), download or make designs on a computer, press "go," and create replicable, real objects. We can’t wait to see what the Panthers and Eagles create!

My child is new to this school and the school district. So far this school is great. At first my child was always crying because she did not know anyone. The school staff have been wonderful. My daughter loves school now. I have never been part of PTA but I want to join now. There are a few things I would like to see at the school. Over all the school is REALLY GOOD.

On behalf of the Campaign for Business & Education Excellence (CBEE), I want to congratulate Glen Oak Elementary School. After an extensive analysis of student data for every public school and district in California, your school stood above the rest in getting your students to grade level proficiency and beyond. Your school has been named as CBEE Honor Roll School for 2014! Your school will be featured on our website and a banner has been designed just for the school to display. Each year, CBEE presents this award to individual schools and to districts that have excelled in raising student achievement and closing achievement gaps. This is a testament to you, your staff and your students’ relentless focus on academic success. The list of Honor Roll schools continues to grow thanks to the hard work and effective practices of thousands of excellent superintendents, administrators, principals, teachers and support personnel in our public schools.  Since its inception in 2005, the CBEE Honor Roll has increased from 261 high performing schools to an inspiring 1851 high performing schools in 2014.  This is thanks to the relentless focus on results for students that you, your staff and your peers have shown over the years.  It is also a strong statement about how success is spreading in public schools across the state. I want to once again congratulate you on the outstanding success your schools have made in raising student academic achievement and closing achievement gaps.

Glen Oak Elementary is an outstanding K-6 grade school in the Charter Oak USD. The teachers, support staff, and principal provide "super hero" programs and services for all students. The school offers students very engaging learning with the new Common Core State Standards and through the use of technology purchased with Measure CO funds. Glen Oak Elementary has lots of parent support and a supportive PTA.
