You Are Important!!
Parents and community friends are important. You are always welcome
to share your talents and expertise. If you have an interest in
science, math, performing and visual arts, desktop publishing
or any other area that you would be interested in sharing with
students and/or staff, just talk to the principal or classroom
teacher, (510) 879-1190. Businesses are also
encouraged to share or make donations of time and/or money.
Parents and Guardians–
You have the right to visit your child’s school.
Glenview has an "Open Door" Policy
and I would like to remind parents to remember the annual 40 hours
of work release time that you are entitled to by law so that you
can attend to school matters concerning your child, including
observations and volunteer work.

This act allows employees to use: "vacation, personal leave,
comp time or time without pay to participate in their children's
school-related activities. The law covers employers with 25 or
more workers at the same location, and it applies to parents,
grandparents and guardians. These persons are allowed to use up

Glenview has an enthusiastic committed Parent-Teacher
Association that works hand-in-hand with administration and staff
to strengthen the Glenview School community and
inform neighborhood families that Glenview is

for their little ones entering kindergarten.
Glenview’s PTA annually sponsors and/or

Spaghetti Feed Dinner, Halloween Haunted House, Holiday Breakfast/Student
Talent Showcase, Annual Read-a-thon, Family Science Night, Annual
Science Fair, Teacher Appreciation Day, Latin Festival, Scholastic
Book Fairs, scholarships for after school arts classes and a multitude

Glenview’s PTA has also provided funding
for such things as picnic tables, a school marquee, field trips,
library renovation and teacher supplies for the benefit of Glenview
students, staff and community.
The school also has an active School Site Council (SSC).
Glenview’s active English Learners’
Advisory Council voted to delegate its responsibilities to the
SSC for the 2004-2006 school cycle. Glenview
is committed to communication between its various language groups.
As a result, every effort is made to have oral and written translations
in Spanish and Cantonese, Glenview’s primary
languages. Portable translation machines have also been purchased
to enhance parent communication at school functions.
Glenview’s parents, staff and administration are
grateful for the long-standing support of City Council President
Ignacio de la Fuente, City Councilperson Jean Quan, and OUSD Board
Member Gary Yee.
