Glendale's Choir Champions

At the annual Salt Lake School District Choir Festival Glendale’s Choir faced off against choirs from Hillside, Bryant, and SLCSE.  

Despite stiff competition and some performance day jitters, Glendale’s choir were undefeated. They achieved perfect or near perfect scores across all evaluation categories which included; tone, quality, rhythm, blend, expression & technique, diction, and poise. The choir was led by their proud music teacher Paul Daraban: 

“Our students did a beautiful job. Not only did they sound great, but their behavior and decorum was impeccable”.

It was Glendale’s day to shine. We congratulate our students on a job well done.

March Focus: Glendale-Mountain View Community Learning Center

The Glendale-Mountain View  Community Learning Campus provides a broad range of educational, health and community development services within the Glendale community.

Our CASA — Communities Aspiring, Succeeding and Achieving — is part of a network launched through an alliance between the University of Utah, the Salt Lake City School District, Google Fiber, A Capital City Education and local school communities. The newest Our CASA space will open on Monday March 6th 2017, at the Glendale-Mountain View Community Learning Campus, and is one of six spaces planned for school and community sites across the west side of Salt Lake City.

“We really want to support any initiative which will help Glendale to become the thriving community we know it can be.  An important element of what we do on campus is providing support to parents and families so that they can help get their kids ready for school and then later for college. Our CASA is an important step in the right direction for Glendale community members.” commented Keri Taddie, site manager of the Glendale Mountain View Community Learning Campus.

The Our CASA spaces will provide a family friendly, college-themed space in schools and community centers, and aim to help to increase numbers of college bound students from traditionally under-represented groups.
