Next HSA meeting
HSA MEETING THIS . FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 13
See you on Friday at our first meeting where you'll get to hear from all our administrators, including Dr. Charleston! Coffee Break at 8:45 am and the meeting kicks off at 9:00 am. We'll be streaming on Facebook Live if you can't be there!
The Federated HSA Online Directory (the Directory) is a great tool to help families connect with each other in the Glen Rock School District. It's a very convenient way to to find contact information, parent and child names, and school classes. All families with children in the Glen Rock School District may be included in the Directory. The Directory is made available through the MobileArq website and the MobileArq app.
The 2019-20 update for the Directory will occur in early October. At that time, there will be a short (7-10 day) blackout period while the new data is being uploaded and tested. The 2018-19 Directory data will remain available via the MobileArq website and the MobileArq app until the blackout period begins. In addition, PDF versions of the 2018-19 directory are available by sending a request to GRFedHSADirectory@gmail.com.
If a family does not want its information included in the 2019-20 version of the Directory, there is an opt-out form within each family's profile in the Genesis system under "Messages". The title is "Parent Handbook Opt-out". Parents have the opportunity to opt-out until September 20th. After that, all the families who have not opted-out will be included in the 2019-20 Directory.
Questions regarding the Federated HSA Online Directory may be directed to Colleen Manley via GRFedHSADirectory@gmail.com.
Thielke Arboretum hosts a range of events to educate children and adults about the 11-acre space, focusing on our local habitat and wetlands. For example, we host all Glen Rock School District 4th Graders for Water Day every spring.
Volunteer docents make our educational programming possible, and we are very much in need of more volunteers!
We're hosting an info session to explain that mission-critical role:
Please join us on Monday, September 23rd at 7:00 pm at the Environmental Education Center at Thielke Arboretum.
FLYER OF INFO HERE
Being a docent is a great way to volunteer right here in Glen Rock, and you can do as much or as little as you like. No prior experience necessary. If you sign up, you'll receive regular emails noting upcoming events. Then, you can decide if you want to volunteer for them or not. The kids always have fun!
We're eager to educate everyone about our environment. We hope you'll join us in this effort and share this info with parents in your HSA.
