Principal's Message

  • It is with much optimism that the staff and I welcome our students and their families to the 2022-2023 school year at Glade Creek School.  I am so pleased to be starting my eighth year as principal here at Glade Creek.  Each student here at Glade is very special to us.  Students are our focus and their achievement at school is what drives our work. 

    This year we will continue to have safe procedures in place daily to promote the overall health of our students. Our goal this year is for our students to have service learning projects so that members of the community can visit our school and our students can be active in our community.  Students will have better school days with this innovative educational opportunity. 

    Parents, I invite you to help your children have many great learning days at school this year by working at home on the following:  1) students need a good night of rest; 2) eating breakfast is the most important meal of the day; 3) read for 20 minutes at home each evening; 4) support your child’s teachers. These four habits will help your children and our students shine! With your help, I know that each Glade Creek student will have a great start to their school day throughout the school year. Our school day begins at 8:00 a.m. and ends at 3:00 p.m. It is very important to help your child develop a strong attendance habit.

    In closing, I want students and staff to know we continue to have lots of momentum. Our staff's hard work, focus, and great relationships have set the bar in the Alleghany County School System and across the Northwest Region.  I believe that our Glade Creek School family is a wonderful example of what is possible in public education.  I look forward to many wonderful school days with our staff and students.  Welcome back to school and if I can be of any assistance or help do not hesitate to call the school office or e-mail me.
