Good evening fellow canyon residents. On Wednesday, February 28th at 6:30pm, there will be an informational meeting at the Glenoaks Elementary School Auditorium to discuss traffic concerns around the school and more specifically at the corner of Glenoaks Blvd. and Waltonia Dr. The city will listen to resident input and lay out the several options they are considering to address the traffic issues during school pick-up and drop-off.

We now have a survey on Survey Monkey for learning whether there is a commitment among a critical mass of area families for starting a language immersion program at our local school.
If your family is considering enrolling a child in kindergarten at Glenoaks in the Fall of 2011 or later, please take a few minutes to take the survey (it's pretty quick). If you know someone with a pre-kindergarten-aged child in our area, please forward it to them.
The district is interested in us first surveying families in the Glenoaks Elementary boundaries. But these language programs also tend to draw families outside the boundaries seeking permits, so we may eventually survey outside families who would be committed to such a language program.
You may receive this from more than one source, and we only want each family/household to respond once. We would like the survey results no later than September 20th.
(Note: this is simply a survey at this point. There is no commitment to necessarily begin language immersion at Glenoaks, and if a program got started it would not be until Fall 2011, at the earliest. This survey is just a starting point to assess commitment.)
Thanks to Amy Yniguez for helping create the survey on Survey Monkey. Once we have survey results those interested could meet to split up tasks.
[Via The818Now.com] The Glenoaks Elementary School Green Team with team up with the school Parent Teacher Assn. and Nike to keep old shoes out of the Scholl Canyon landfill.
A drive to collect old but usable shoes will begin Jan. 29 and end Feb. 12. The shoes can be recycled into high quality sports and playground surfaces.
Shoes can linger in landfills for up to 1,000 years, and the reuse-a-shoe program has kept 21 million pairs of athletic shoes out of landfills, organizers said.
Glenoaks organizers said they hope they can recycle 200 pairs.
The Glenoaks Green Team has led the effort to initiate cans and bottle recycling at the school, as well as a school garden project.
The Green Team students meet every month after school.
This Wednesday, February 11th from 7-9am there will be curbside recycling of all aluminum and plastic cans and bottles in front of Glenoaks Elementary. Even if you don't have kids at the school, your plastic bottles and cans are gladly welcome. Proceeds benefit the students. If you have any questions, please email David Weeks at firstname.lastname@example.org.
