K-5 Parent Teacher Conference

We will stay at Glenwood and bring the activities to us! Gather at Glenwood. Bring in lunch from Wendy’s and eat picnic-style. Teachers and supplies will come from Snapology for a 2 hour workshop on creative building and robotics using Legos. This should be an excellent class. In any spare time, we will have our own fun and games and prizes.

Pickup at 6 PM at Glenwood School

K-5 Parent Teacher Conference

The Game Vault in Morristown with lunch at Mama’s Old World Meatballs & Pizza. We will take a school bus for this trip. We suddenly had 9 children sign up in the last few days. So although we still don’t have enough children to pay all the expenses of the trip, we decided that it would not be advisable to attempt to take 20 children by train to Morristown.

Six Flags Great Adventure Jackson, NJ

An exciting and very popular trip that we can only take when our vacation schedule overlaps the days they are open. We will travel with enough staff to have small groups of one adult for about 4 children. The park is organized and very manageable, with an excellent area for younger children as well as several shows that we all attend. There are rides for all tastes. Height restrictions are imposed or the “thrill” rides, so younger/smaller children would not be permitted. Lunch at our choice of restaurants in the park.

Jenkinson’s Aquarium & Boardwalk, Pt. Pleasant, NJ

A very popular trip. We will have a tour of the aquarium and a chance to touch and handle many species of reptiles and penguins. After a pizza lunch we will enjoy the fresh air on the sand (far away from the water) and play ball and fly kites. We will finish with a favorite – arcade games!

Annual Halloween Trick-or-Treating

Please let us know if your child will be at SAM that day or will be absent.


Students attending SAM will arrive at SAM, have a short recess, snack and homework. At 4:15 we will go trick-or-treating around the school neighborhood in groups of about 5 students and a teacher. We will return to SAM at 5:45.

If you plan to pick up before 5:45, please let us know so we will bring your child back to school. Mr. Shutte will be in the Multipurpose Room that afternoon, coordinating the phone and early pick-ups.

Splurge Bakery Class, Hike & Movie


This day only: Drop-off and Pick-up will be at Dunkin Donuts on MILLBURN AVENUE in downtown Millburn

An interesting and intricate morning class at the bakery on making beautiful handcrafted fondant critters for our cupcakes. We will then, weather permitting, take a refreshing, easy hike in the S Mountain Reservation. After we’ve worked up an appetite, we will have a salad and pasta lunch at Gian Marco. We will end the day viewing the excellent upcoming movie “Doolittle”.

Walk to Genius Gems for a session of fun and creative challenges. At the end of the session, we will walk to Dunkin Donuts, Millburn Ave. for snack and pick-up.

Monday Evening pick up: Dunkin Donuts, Millburn Ave. in Downtown Millburn at 6:00 pm

Snow Tubing in Shawnee, PA.

Super popular trip! Great, safe winter snow fun! Sit in a large inflated inner tube and get pulled up a big hill, then slide down in a path carved out of the snow. Similar to sledding, but a more comfortable, softer seat, no steering required since the tube stays in the path and path has a soft stop. Get a longer ride than an ordinary hill and no need to trudge back up pulling a sled. Lunch on the way there at McDonald’s, and snack on the trip home. Plenty of adult supervision. Exhilarating, outdoor fun!
Dress in layers and with hat, boots and gloves.
