Pencil Partners with Glendale Elementary School & J.T. Moore Middle School | Volunteer Opportunity
Close to the church, Glendale Spanish Immersion Elementary School and J.T. Moore Middle School are public schools for Pre-Kindergarten through 4th grade and 5th -8th grade students, respectively, in the neighborhood and across the city.
Through the Pencil Partnership program, Glendale UMC supports these two schools in several ways:
Church members and visitors read with and tutor students
Sponsors a teacher appreciation lunch during the days prior to the opening of the school year
Gathering place for local students and parents for the annual district-wide “Walk to School” each October
Site of occasional “Spanish for parents and neighbors” classes offered by teachers
If you are new to the area, looking for a new church that is inclusive + anti-racist, don't have a background of going to church or anywhere in between, we welcome you to Glendale. This is a faith community that includes people of many diverse backgrounds and faith journeys, single, partnered + married, old + young.
