Welcome to Glenn L. Downs School

Principal Vivian NashDear Parents,

On behalf of the staff of Glenn L. Downs Elementary School, I am happy to welcome you to our amazing school. We have approximately 750 awesome students ranging from kindergarten through 8th grade. As a staff, we are energized and deeply committed to making a positive difference in the lives of our students. We are dedicated to providing our students with the skills necessary to ensure they reach their potential as global citizens and to be in position to give back to the world more than they take. We feel privileged to be a part of this school family.

At our school, we work diligently to build a community where students feel safe to try new things. Staff members are committed to ensuring student interests are considered when developing engaging lessons. We put forth the extra effort each day to make our school a place where students thrive and look forward to spending their elementary years.

We invite you to become an active participant in our school community through volunteering, joining our PTO, or attending and supporting school events. Research clearly supports that when parents/guardians participate and are involved in their child's education, there is a greater likelihood of academic success. We are partners in your child's education and look forward to working together to make certain that our students have the skills necessary to reach their potential. Thank you for choosing us!

Respectfully,
Vivian Nash
