Melanie Williams is Gladeville Elementary's 2016-2017 "Teacher of the Year"

We want to wish Melanie Williams congratulations for being chosen by her peers as Gladeville's Teacher of the Year.  Melanie is very deserving of this honor.  Our Principal Monica Fox had this to say about Melanie...   

Melanie is uncompromising in her quest for quality educational opportunities for all of her students. She is eager to learn and willing to try new ideas.
She researches effective teaching practices and when she finds useful resources and apps, she shares them with other teachers.
She has a genuine concern for the education and well-being of each of her students. She never loses sight of them and their needs.She is a kind hearted person who comes to school every day not to win accolades, but because of the passion she has for teaching.

Melanie shared why she chose teaching as a profession.  When choosing a profession, I wanted a job that would be challeng i ng and give me opportunities to ma ke a d if f erence in the lives of others.  I enjoy  my job  as a teacher  because I learn from my students while they are learning from me and no two days are the same. I want them to have as many hands-on experiences possible and feel they learn more effectively when given those opportunities.

As I completed my student teacher assignment, the teacher who shared her kids with me told me to always ask myself this question at the end of every school day, "If I were a kid in this classroom, would I want to come back tomorrow?" It's important that kids f eel they belong and I strive to provide that atmosphere in my classroom.

I am honored to be Gladevi lle's Teacher of the Year and to have been chosen by teachers that I adm i re and am blessed to work with them.

Parents, we want to take a moment to remind you that attendance matters for every child in every grade, from pre-Kindergarten through high school. The Young Child Wellness Council produced this video to promote the importance of school attendance. We encourage you to share the video with your school community. For more information and additional resources for your families and communities, visit the KidCentralTN website (here).

Food Policy 2016-2017

***IMPORTANT SCHOOL POLICY*** 

In the past, we have loved to celebrate our children’s birthdays by bringing cupcakes and other food items to class.  However, many children have birthdays in the same week or even the same day. There are concerns regarding the amount of sugar in the treat and there are also concerns about allergies and other health issues.    This places a great deal of responsibility on school personnel to monitor outside food entering classrooms.  In addition, students with allergies or other health issues do not have the opportunity to celebrate with their classmates. 

Does this mean we are not celebrating?  ABSOLUTELY NOT!  WE LOVE TO HAVE FUN IN THE “GLADE!” 

Classrooms will have their own celebrations throughout the year:  holiday parties, rewards for winning PTO competitions, grade-level incentives, etc.  If there is a special occasion that teachers choose to celebrate, teachers will inform parents of the celebration days and will let you know if any items are needed.

Food items are NOT permitted to be sent for the entire class as a treat except for the events listed above. 

If you would like an alternative to food treats for your child’s birthday celebration at school, below are some suggestions.  Always check with your child’s teacher first to see what he/she finds acceptable for their classroom and ask in advance to make sure they can fit the birthday plans into their schedule.

·       Party favors (matchbox cars, erasers, tops, magnifying glasses, notepads, stickers, etc.)

·       Come into the classroom and read a book to the class

·       Donate something to the classroom (books, games, music, etc.)

·       Decorate a box and send it in to the classroom.  Also send index cards or smaller pieces of paper.  Have the teacher ask each child to write one sentence about the birthday child and put it in the box.  The birthday child gets to take the box home.  Or do the same with an autograph book.

·       Send in supplies and directions for a craft for the children to take home.

·       Bring in something that all the children can sign for the birthday child (stuffed animal, t-shirt, tote-bag, pillow case, etc.)

·       Ask the teacher if you can send in a dance song and have the class do the Hokey Pokey, Chicken Dance or the Electric Slide.  Whatever is your child’s favorite! 


2016-2017 Supply Lists are filed under documents
