A message from Dr. Troutt
Our Glendale American staff and I are looking forward to working with you to ensure that all students are successful this year, academically and socially. Our partnership with parents and guardians is critical to accomplish that goal.
We are thrilled to share that our AzMERIT scores show academic gains in many areas. In Reading, we increased our percentage of students who are proficient or highly proficient in ALL grade levels! In math, we increased in many grade levels. Since 2015, our school has had an overall gain in 15% in Reading and 11% gain in Math. We plan to continue this success!
You can help us accomplish our goals. Please bring every student to school by 7:35am, with all required materials and prepared to do his or her best. Students will enjoy free breakfast in the classroom. Attendance every day is important to guarantee learning! Lunch is free this year for all kids too!
This year we are focusing on implementing Well Managed Schools (Boys Town). Check our website each week to learn the social skill of the week we are teaching all K-8 students. When you choose to use the same language at home, students learn how to handle social situations even better!
I am extremely proud to be serving as your principal. I look forward to making connections with each family at Glendale American and creating a lasting impact on the achievement of students!
It’s a GREAT day to be an Eagle!
Dr. Amy Troutt
