The annual Academic Fair at The Glenholme School was another astonishing success. The afternoon experience brings many parents to campus each year and as a special delight, everyone was treated to gourmet wood-fire cooked pizzas and customary salad along with freezing cold gelato and espresso from the Big Green Truck – a gift from several school supporters as part of the Parents’ Weekend fundraiser. After the delicious meal and pleasant conversation between parents and staff, the educational enthusiasts braved the downpour to gather under the enormous tent in the courtyard where students prepared to present their academic findings.

The exchange between a child’s family and school is vital to his or her growth and development, especially when the child has special needs. For this reason, The Glenholme School strongly encourages parents to be involved in their children’s treatment, and provides them with regular training opportunities and around-the-clock support. By actively participating in the Glenholme program, following through with recommendations and expectations, and maintaining frequent communication, Glenholme parents help to bridge the gap between their children’s school and home lives, allowing for a more successful transfer of treatment. Though it may not always be easy, Glenholme parents have risen to the challenge – demonstrating grace, humility, and a much-needed sense of humor in even the most trying circumstances.
During Parent Appreciation Week, held from January 2 – 8, The Glenholme School thanked parents for their unwavering commitment to their children and to the Glenholme community. Through daily notes, e-mails, photos, phone calls, videos, and mailings, students and staff shared some of their favorite experiences at the school while acknowledging Glenholme parents’ tireless effort and dedication. The response was nothing shy of sensational - below are just a few of the many wonderful affirmations that staff received from Glenholme parents:
“Wow! This video is packed with good work, effort and care: the concept, organization, direction, cooperative community spirit, tech, timing and person power. We played it three times–it was so much fun to watch–and it works great. Best of all it feels great.” -Jerry and Myron
“What a wonderful phone message to receive! Certainly was a bright lift to our day. Thank you so much for your kind and encouraging words about our son. Whatever he has been achieving at Glenholme musically is due to the help and support of the staff and the confidence that has gradually been instilled upon him, and especially from you.” -Vicki and Larry
“Thank you so much for the wonderful work you are doing with our son. It is nothing short of amazing. Your picture of our son holding the basketball with the other student brought tears to our eyes. Please keep them coming. They are precious.” -Kim and Arthur
Thank you, Glenholme parents, for all that you do!
