Glenn Elementary School is a Title I School with close to 600 students in grades K-5. In 2021-22 a new principal, Matt Hunt, became the Glenn Team leader. Many positive changes have happened quickly, and there are more to come. In the past, Glenn has been designated as a “Restart School” that was almost taken over by the state because of a lack of progress over many years. However, last year, Glenn earned the prestigious “Exceeded Academic Growth” status for the first time in school history. We’re working hard to do it again this year. Having volunteers to provide extra hands, ears and eyes is very helpful!
Over 60% of the students at Glenn are Spanish speaking or Bilingual, over 40% are Black, and some students are from other countries around the world. Students are generally very welcoming to volunteers, especially college students.
There are a few options for volunteering at Glenn Elementary School. It is helpful if volunteers are willing to try different jobs from week to week if needed.
Volunteers will be assisting in three specials classes:
Some of the jobs include working directly with students and some are tasks that help the teachers prepare materials for classes.
All Duke student volunteers report to the Main Office on arrival to sign in. They should then report to the Media Center (across the hall from the main office) to check in with Ms. Januzzi, and get their assignment for the day.
If a student is unable to attend on their designated day and time, they should contact Ms. Januzzi asap at email@example.com or by texting her at (phone # available from PfS office) so she can plan accordingly.
