2019 After School Teacher of the Year! JUST ANNOUNCED!

Congratulations to Lucas Tucker who has been nominated After School Teacher of the Year

This is what was said about him:

“Lucas Tucker is essential to the afterschool program and is the epitome of selflessness, service, and dedication every day, for every student, an in every opportunity. He acts as a bridge between the day school and afterschool programming and encourages students to conquer barriers and holds them to the highest of standards. Lucas recognized many students cannot afford the fees to participate in afterschool, sports, or summer school programming, so each year he collaborates to raise money for scholarships. Over the last five years, Lucas raised over $7,000 to cover student fees so that all students can participate. Even with the recent loss of afterschool funded sports, Lucas connected with district administrators to gain their interest and commitment to create school teams that play one another. When asked to describe his contributions, one administrator said, “He is a teacher, educator, mentor, leader, colleague, friend, confidant, motivator, cheerleader, believer; there is no single word to describe him and there is no single statement that could qualify or quantify the impact he had, has, and will continue to have on the community. He is the reason so many students connect to school and is often the reason students push themselves to be successful academically.” 

Lucas Tucker

Thank you Coach Tucker for everything you do for our school!

Inland Port Survey

The Utah Inland Port Authority Board is seeking public input from residents of Salt Lake City, including the families within the boundaries of the Salt Lake City School District. Our school district is the largest taxing entity impacted by the inland port, and we strongly encourage SLCSD families, students, and employees to fill out the survey and make their voices heard on this critical issue.

Our very own, Sharon Moore, received UtSTA Outstanding 7th Grade Science Teacher of the Year Award. Each year the organization recognizes exceptional and innovative science educators. The
program was created to raise awareness and exposure of the outstanding work being done in the science education field. New to Glendale, she immediately became a favorite amongst her students. Dedicated to investigative, inquiry-based instruction, Sharon Moore creates hand-on labs that are highly engaging for the middle school student. Stop by her classroom; you’ll be impressed!


The Glendale Buzz in Glendale Middle School’s video broadcast that is written, produced, and directed by students. Each week, the publication of the Buzz provides students with a steady stream of feedback, affirmation and ownership, while also strengthening their ability to work in a self-directed environment. In addition to building academic skills such as writing, proofreading, presenting and
speaking, students practice professional broadcast skills, such as media production and behind-the-scenes technology. And woven through all of their work are skills critical to our professional and personal lives: collaboration, communication, creativity, critical thinking, responsibility, flexibility, and the problem-solving prowess that comes from working under pressure to produce a daily news show in a room full of people and unreliable technology. Check out the episodes on our school website.


We are pleased to announce that Glendale Middle School has the second highest growth scores in mathematics in the state among schools with similar
demographics. Last year 40% of our 8th graders met or exceeded the state benchmark in mathematics and are very prepared for their high school classes. We thank the math department for their efforts in helping every single student reach their potential in math.

Afterschool math tutoring and homework help is held every day after school.

Glendale Rising

At our annual cultural education conference, invited speakers from the Glendale community and beyond, delivered a selection of student-centered sessions, which shared knowledge and resources about recognizing and addressing implicit bias, as well as ways to find and share our unique voice as a community. The keynote speaker Dr. David Parker, engaged and delighted Glendale students and faculty with his energetic, humorous and highly relevant presentation.
Glendale Middle School would like to offer its grateful thanks to all our community partners and to the many presenters who participated in the event, in addition to our Counseling Dept; Cassie Bell, Dan Del Porto and Jerly Alcala who organized the conference.

Newsflash: Advisory Classes have begun!

What is Advisory?

To support Glendale’s school-wide goal of providing a safe, connected and caring learning environment for every student, this year we added a homeroom class (Advisory) to our schedule.

Why Advisory?

Middle school can be a challenging time. The primary purpose of our Advisory classes is to support our students to develop academically, socially, and emotionally by ensuring that they are connected and cared for members of our school community. Advisory classes are very much like small ‘families’ of students, with an advisory teacher whose role is to act as their teacher-advocate.  In addition to addressing any everyday concerns, Advisory class is also a time when teachers and students can address school-wide issues in a safe setting. Each week, students attend their Advisory classroom on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays before the school day begins. 

In September, our focus was teaching our school-wide expectations; to ensure that all students knew how to act in the classroom, cafeteria, halls, bathrooms, auditorium, and outside at recess.

More importantly, we started a school-wide conversation about what it means to be an upstander instead of a bystander. This is a particularly important skill for students to learn, to prepare them if they ever encounter difficult or unsafe situations, such as bullying and fights during and after school.  

Parents Empowered:

Here are some tips to help you continue this important conversation at home; 

bystander is—someone who witnesses bullying or unsafe situations, but doesn't get involved.

An upstander is—the person who knows what's happening is wrong and does something to make things right and just. It takes courage to speak up on someone's behalf, or to go and get help - to be an upstander instead of a bystander.

We understand that building a great school community is a long term endeavor, and we still have a long way to go; however, the students are using the terms upstander and bystander in every day conversations.

Glendale's school-wide expectations

Glendale Middle School is pleased to announce the launch of its school-wide student behavior expectations. In collaboration with our stakeholders, Principal Jill Baillie consolidated a plan to crystalize our school values into a series of beautifully designed posters which grace the hallways of Glendale.

We encourage parents and community members to read and discuss the school behavior expectations with their students.

New iPad Protocols 2019-2020

This and last year at Glendale we have implemented class sets of iPads for students to use in their core classes. This means students will no longer have to carry devices from classroom to classroom, but instead will share iPads housed in specific rooms.  To support our students to remain safe, responsible, respectful and kind, we have created a new student protocol for the shared devices. Information about these protocols can be found on the student iPad contracts which will be distributed in September, as well as in the Student iPad Expectations video
