How to make a difference in your child's school

School volunteers are extra-special people who are committed to making schools the best they can be. They offer special attention and caring that can inspire students to reach for and realize their dreams. Through the "Dividends" program, school volunteers can work at Greenwood Lakes and participate in activities that match their interests, such as assisting teachers in the classroom, designing bulletin boards, serving as computer tutors, working with art classes, helping out in the office or media center or even using your professional talents to mentor a group of students. Educators value the time and special talents of volunteers, and welcome them into the classroom.
Be a "Dividends" volunteer and help Greenwood Lakes Eagles Soar to new heights!

Attention Parents

  
Most after school activities (practices, club meetings, etc.) end by 5:30.  Because it gets dark around this time, students must be picked up by a parent/guardian.  For their safety, students are not permitted to walk home or to the library at dusk or after dark.

What's happening in my child’s classes?


Our New Digital Learning platform is HERE! LOGIN
SCPS provides the opportunity for you to observe your student within the district's Learning Management System known as eCampus. Remember, Observers can view the course content but cannot participate in the course.

To observe a student, you must know the student's eCampus username and password. The student must be enrolled in the course and must accept the course invitation before you can sign up to observe the student. If you receive an invalid username or password message during the signup process and the student's credentials are correct, check with the student to verify that he or she has received and accepted the course invitation. These steps must be completed through the web version of Canvas. The observer signup process cannot be done through the mobile app.

Please click the "Sign up for eCampus" button below, choose the "Parents sign up here" link, and fill in the appropriate information regarding yourself and your student.

Bridge to GEM

Next year as a 6th Grade GEM student, your child will be learning all content standards from grades 6-8 prior to entering Algebra 1 Honors in 7th Grade. He/she has already learned some of the 6th grade content in his/her 5th grade PRIMES class. Your child will be learning the other 6th grade standards through virtual bridges at home while learning the 7th and 8th grade content in class next year. To support his/her success in 6th grade GEM, we are recommending that he/she start the work described below to practice and continue learning over the summer.

Your incoming GEM student can begin the “6th Grade Mission” in Khan Academy. After starting the sixth grade mission, Khan Academy’s adaptive software and instant feedback will guide them on their individual learning path. This allows them to practice skills, understand which ones they have truly mastered, and focus their effort where it’s most needed. Students will also be able to link their work to their teachers when they start the school-year so that they can pick up their learning from there.

Dropped Off Items

It is important that students arrive at school prepared for the day. This includes having all materials when arriving at school. In an effort to meet the expectations of all students being prepared for class, we are asking that parents encourage their child(ren) to leave home with all materials needed for the day. Beginning January 1, 2016 GLMS will discontinue the policy of calling the students to the front office to retrieve items. I thank you for your support of this effort to prepare students for the academic success and high school expectations.

GLMS Recycling Program

We are starting back up the recycling program here at school!! If you would like to participate in recycling, please email me back with your room number and if you need a box to place the recycling in. We will be coming by once a week to collect the recycling and separate it. The scheduling for pick will be forthcoming. Lets Green UP Greenwood!!

SCPS REMAINS ONE OF THE TOP SCHOOL DISTRICTS

SCPS is ranked #1 of the 17 largest districts in reading, mathematics and science. I am very proud of our incredible students, I am thrilled for our hard working teachers, administrators and staff and am cheering for our incredibly supportive community” stated SCPS Superintendent Dr. Walt Griffin.

In an era of increased statewide assessment and accountability, SCPS students continue to outperform the state in Reading by 10 points and 12 points in Mathematics. Students, parents, and teachers have a reason to celebrate this success and the tremendous effort put forth this year to reach for standards of “proficiency” and beyond, as defined by the State of Florida.

Part of the reason for that success is our progress based monitoring efforts, which allow us to provide personalized instruction to all our students. As many are aware, progress based monitoring is required three times a year by the state in reading. In addition, SCPS also utilizes progress based monitoring for both science and math in an effort to improve student achievement through identifying skills that help determine a student’s strengths and allow us to focus on areas that need improvement.

In particular, we can not emphasize enough the hard work of our classroom teachers who continue to deliver exceptional instruction to all students. Their work and planning translates to performance measured on mandated statewide assessments but it goes beyond just “testing.” They prepare our children for success in the 21st Century and the data overwhelmingly supports it! This is why SCPS continues to remain one of the highest achieving school districts in the state.
