In the News


It is a new day in Kansas education. 

With the input of more than 2,000 Kansans, the Kansas State Board of Education has set a new Vision for Kansas education where “Kansas leads the world in the success of each student.” 

Kansans are demanding higher standards in academic skills, as well as employability and citizenship skills, and the need to move away from a “one-size-fits-all” system that relies exclusively on state assessments from No Child Left Behind. This new vision for education calls for a more student-focused system that provides support and resources for individual success and will require everyone to work together to make it a reality.

Kansans have never backed down from a challenge and certainly not where our children are concerned.  

With your support, Kansans Can!

2016-2017 Enrollment

Please contact the GRES office to enroll.

If your child has attended in the past and you didn't complete the enrollment process in May, you may go online to Skyward and complete this information and pay fees between July 18 and August 3.  Those families new to Glenwood Ridge should attend enrollment on August 3 between 12 - 8 p.m.  All fees are due at this time. If you ordered prepackaged supplies, these will be available at enrollment.

New students must have proof of address (a recent bill with your name and address or driver's license), physical, immunization record, Consent to Treat form completed, and official birth certificate. 

Here are helpful links to assist you in getting off to a GREat start:

PTO Carnival

Our PTO Carnival will be here before you know it on Friday, September 9th from 6:30-8:30 p.m. at GRES.  These events happen because of our wonderful support.  If you are able to help, please sign up here. Please mark your calendar and plan to attend.

16-17 GRES Helpers

It's going to be a GREat year - and even better with your assistance! Here's how you can help. Go to the PTO website and find your child's teacher, which is located on the upper left hand side of the page labeled Classroom Sign-Up Links. PLEASE sign up for one slot per class until after September 7th. This will hopefully give everyone a chance to sign up. Additionally, please do not sign up for the same job in multiple classes if it requires simultaneous classroom participation (for example: Signing up for Valentine's games in 2 classes - NO, Signing up for Valentine's Paper Party Supplies in 2 classes - GREat)! We want to give the classrooms the attention they need!

Questions about what each job entails? See the Class Party Responsibilities & Ideas document.

Thanks in advance for any contribution you are able to provide this year!

It is important for parents and staff to educate our students on what is expected of them with regards to the USD 458 Technology Use Policy, and what consequences may occur if the policy is not followed.

Please read or share with your student the document below and what it translates to. This includes, but not limited to: student privacy, downloading games, changing backgrounds, and adding programs without permission to district property.
