Halloween Carnival and Haunted House (October)
The Halloween Carnival is one of Glenview’s most enjoyable and popular traditions. Kids and adults alike come dressed in fabulous costumes. There are creepy games to play, prizes to be won, faces to be painted, and delicious home-baked treats to be had! And don't miss the famous Haunted House. It is spooktacular!

Holiday Sale (December)
Get your holiday shopping done early! The holiday craft fair brings families together with the surrounding community of Glenview and Dimond business owners and residents. Merchants and individuals will be able to sell their wares in a friendly and welcoming atmosphere.

Movie Nights 
Three hours of cartoons and kid-friendly movies will give any work-weary parent a little boost for their weekend. Kids: bring a pillow and a blanket, stake out your spot on the floor, and munch away on hot dogs and popcorn. Yes, we do have some fruit and veggies too. Parents: make your dinner reservations, drop off the youngsters, leave a little donation, and enjoy your evening out. The Dad's Club will take care of things for a few hours.

Walk and Roll to School Day
Join us to celebrate our health, the environment, and our school spirit. Walk, bike, or scooter to school with a walking school bus group or bike train. Take a turn on Glenview's Griffinator Bike Blender to pedal to a smoothie and participate in the school-wide chart to see how we get to Glenview. See the 2018 pics here.
