Alameda Food Drive
Griffins, we have 3 empty bins that need to be filled with canned and boxed food. Please bring in your donations and place them in the bin across from the Front Office.
The Food Bank’s mission is to provide nutritious food to the low-income residents of the City of Alameda on a non-discriminating basis. The Alameda Food Bank is a private, non-affiliated, non-profit, tax-exempt agency. The Food Bank is overseen by a board of directors composed of community volunteers. Its day to day operation is run by two paid staff members and over 150 volunteers.
Glenview at a Glance
Glenview Elementary School nestles against the east bay foothills in the Glenview district of Oakland, California. We have a diverse student population, high level of parent involvement, strong administrative leadership, outstanding teachers and support staff, which make Glenview a very special school and community.
The Glenview community is committed to science, healthy eating, and sustainablilty. We have a fantastic edibles and natives teaching garden where students can taste new foods. There is a traditional science fair along with a family science day, where students can use clues (and science!) to solve mysteries.
We also have strong commitment to the arts by integrating dance, drama, theater, music and visual arts programs into the regular curriculum. We hope to inspire students with a broad range of opportunities for a well-rounded educational experience.
In addition to the whole-learning focus at Glenview, we have a robust event calendar filled with community building opportunities for the whole family. With everything from a Halloween Carnival to a Spaghetti Dinner to Movie Nights, there is something for everyone, and a lot of fun to be had! Volunteer opportunites abound - for instance, parents organize and run the Readathon, help in classes, and work at the Book Fair.
With so much to be proud of, there is good reason that Glenview Griffins "just can't hide that Glenview pride!"
Scrap It! is an educational video produced by Glenview parents, starring Glenview students and our two-time, Green-Glove custodian of the year, Mr. Fudge. It teaches everyone the importance of reducing our carbon footprint by learning to sort food scraps and recycle. In 2008, Glenview Elementary was one of the first OUSD schools to institute a school-wide food scraps program and served as a model for other district schools.
