Dear Glenside Families,
Welcome to the 2018-19 school year. This year at Glenside Middle School, we will be serving as Co-Interim Principals. We are each retired principals with a wide range of administrative experiences. After serving as principal of four different schools in Community Consolidated School District 93, Jim retired as Principal of Stratford Middle School. Scott served as an administrator at a number of area high schools, retiring as Principal at Downers Grove North High School in Community High School District 99. Since our retirements, we have worked together as Co-Interim Principals at Jackson Middle School in Villa Park and Whittier Elementary School in Oak Park. We are very excited to be part of the Glenside faculty for this school year.
We will be alternating our days at Glenside, with each of us working every other day. This schedule will allow us to both become fully involved in all aspects of the school. We are most looking forward to getting to know your children and working together with the faculty to support the excellent learning experiences and opportunities they provide our students. At Glenside Middle School, we are all committed to fostering the academic, social, and emotional growth of your children. We want Glenside to continue to be a school where all children enjoy coming everyday, build positive connections with their teachers, develop a love for learning, make new friends, and find opportunities to pursue interests outside of the classroom through athletics and co-curricular activities. As a school, we are committed to the overall development of your children.
A strong partnership between the school and parents is vital to the education of your children. Should you have questions or concerns at any time, please always feel free to reach out to your child's teachers or other staff members. If we can ever be of assistance, please feel free to contact us at either firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com, or at 630-260-6116.
We are looking forward to a great school year.
Jim Doyle and Scott Kasik, Co-Interim Principals
