Hello everyone,

As you might be aware, we are still waiting for half of our student planners to arrive at Glenwood.  This is why planners have not been sent home yet.  So, here are a couple of important pieces of information.

  1. Individual Picture Day is on Thursday, September 13th in the morning.
  2. Please return the package of notices (student information verification form, walking field trip form, etc.) to the school as soon as possible.  Remember to sign each notice.
  3. Glenwood is no longer accepting cash payments, so please pay either by cheque or online payment.
  4. Please return planner notice (and payment) to the school.  
  5. Young People’s Concert forms went home today.  Please return notice and payment to school.
  6. Please send all school supplies to the classroom by Monday, September 17th.

If you have any questions, feel free to contact me.




Welcome Back!

Welcome Back

My name is Christina Pook, and this is my classroom website.  Here you will find information about Division 3 such as: our weekly schedule, term overviews, links to student e-portfolios, and electronic copies of classroom notices.  I am continuing to update the website with this year’s content, so check back for more information.

First, a little about myself: I have been a classroom teacher at Glenwood for seven years.  I live with my husband, daughter, aged 3, and dog named Blue.  We live in New Westminster and are often found walking along the board walk at the river, or exploring local parks on the weekends.  

This summer, we stayed close to home and spent time visiting with family and friends locally.  However, we also visited family on the Sunshine Coast, in the Okanagan Valley, and went to my husband’s annual family reunion, nicknamed the ‘Pook-a-thon’, during the Labour Day long weekend.

As you are probably aware, I am expecting my second child in early February 2019.  I anticipate leaving Glenwood in the third week of January 2019 to begin my leave.  If this date changes, I will notify parents as soon as possible.

Email is the best way to reach me.  I will try to respond to all parent emails within 1 business day.  If there is an urgent matter, I can be reached at school either by phone during office hours, or before or after school beginning around 8:00 am and until 4:00 pm.

I am looking forward to reconnecting and meeting everyone at our Welcome Conversations on Thursday, September 27th.  Information about scheduling will be sent home in the following weeks.
