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, just looking for something different, 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.
