A Message From Principal Toller
Dear Glenview Families-
This year was an important one in the almost 100 year history of Glenview. Our move from our old site to the temporary location at the Santa Fe campus brought so many changes. Some of these were anticipated and others caught us all off guard.
During times of uncertainty, I remind myself that our children learn more at school than just reading or science, they watch how we respond to change. They observe how we manage obstacles. They listen to how we communicate and negotiate with each other about experiences we didn't anticipate or didn't want. As they go through life, change is the one inevitability, and we teach them to become resilient through our actions and words.
On that note, there is much to be grateful for at Glenview. I want to commend our staff for putting in extra time and thought to not only physically moving the school in the Fall, but to setting up new rituals, traditions and experiences every month. Each part of our day and year had to be re-invented, and our staff came together with humor and hard work to make that happen. I want to greatly appreciate our families who were incredibly patient with the many adjustments to routines and experiences. I want to especially thank those of you who took leadership to give the site essential help along the way and who gave staff critical feedback and support with each step. I want to acknowledge Orsolya Nasdasdi, our PTA president, who worked tirelessly for the last two years to make sure that the essential PTA functions, events and fundraising remained intact to support our community.
Lastly I want to celebrate our students. Our children come from every neighborhood in Oakland. They speak languages from every continent. They come from every kind of family, ethnicity and background. Everyday our young people come to school and take care of each other even when they may not understand each other. They bravely make mistakes over and over, and they keep trying to do hard things. Whether it is the fifth grader who ran for Student Council and then faced not being elected with grace, the fourth grader who successfully mediated a peer conflict as a Junior Coach, the second grader who taught her classmate how to do that math problem that seemed impossible, the first grader who learned to read his first word or the Kindergartener who used her Empathy Tool to comfort a friend, our students represent the promise of our city and our country. Personally, they provide me every day with a great sense of optimism for what is possible and a reminder to just keep trying.
I hope everyone has a summer of rest and relaxation. I am looking forward to next year and partnering with you to continue to make Glenview an even better place for our children to learn and grow.
Congratulations to Ms. Smith!
Ms. Smith, our fourth grade teacher has received two significant awards this year. In March, she was chosen as the Oakland Unified District 4 Teacher of the Year and then in May she was chosen to receive the Oakland Mayor’s "Fulfilling the Promise" Teaching Award. This award recognizes and honors Oakland teachers who demonstrate a deep commitment to engaging with the broader school community and creating a college-going culture in their classroom and school. The Mayor honored only three elementary school teachers this year and Ms. Smith will be joining the Mayor for a special breakfast this week.
Ms. Smith comes from an OUSD family, both of her parents were Oakland educators and her sister is a teacher at Fruitvale Elementary. Ms. Smith, herself, is an OUSD alumni and currently serves as the after school program liaison to Learning Spot, provides after school intervention, and serves as a Social Emotional lead teacher. Since 1993 when she joined Glenview, Ms. Smith has taken on formal and informal leadership roles in addition to always changing and improving her classroom practice. Congratulations Ms. Smith, we are so very proud of you!
A special thank you to the AXIS Dance Company
