THE STORY:

We are the teachers of McGlone Elementary School - we are the #McGloneFamily! Over the past three and half years, we have catapulted ourselves from being one of the lowest-performing schools to one of the top in the state for growth four years running – and just this past year we were the top growth elementary school in all Denver Public Schools for Literacy! We have an incredible team of dedicated teachers and staff members working to ensure that our wonderful kids are never defined by the single story of their zip code. At McGlone, we believe that #HappyKidsLearnMore. We ensure our kids have more than just rigorous academics – two hours of arts a day and technology infused everywhere. We dole out hugs and praise more frequently than anything else. We’ve worked to build a community full of love, support and partnership. Our staff demonstrates a deeper commitment than one or two years – we had to show our kids and families we were committed for the long term. We now enroll 730 students, up from low 500s, and we flipped a 90% teacher turnover rate to 90% retention for the past two years. Students and families trust us and our commitment – together, we are all the McGlone Family. McGlone is proof that it can be done – there can be amazing schools where student happiness and learning are linked and nurtured, and where teachers stay for a long term commitment. We are running a marathon and races within that to raise money for our school community - we are doing this to show our kids how much we believe in them and so we can be united in our race! Help us fundraise for this goal! (*All funds raised will go to general student programming: such as art supplies, After-School Clubs, literacy and math materials, etc). Thank you! Got a question?
