Principal's Welcome Message (2022-23)

Welcome to Glenknoll Elementary School! We are happy to have you as part of our school family. I am honored to be your new principal. This is a very special opportunity for me because I began my teaching career at this great school, and I am thrilled to return. I am looking forward to an outstanding year at Glenknoll and I am excited to meet our wonderful parents and students. It is my priority to get to know each and every student and learn the gifts and talents that make them a unique individual.

We are committed to our mission which is to provide a warm and stimulating environment conducive to academic and personal success in which students will acquire the knowledge, skills, and creativity necessary to participate effectively in an ever-changing society. To that end, all students will be encouraged to strive for excellence: academically, socially, personally, and in service to others.

Throughout the 2022 - 2023 school year, we will foster and celebrate the great work that our students and teachers are doing to continue the tradition of excellence at Glenknoll. Be on the lookout for news of this work in our monthly Glenknoll Gazette that you will receive by email and you will find on our website. Being recognized as a California  Distinguished School and a National Blue Ribbon School are outstanding achievements that are the result of wonderfully involved parents and a team of top notch educators working together for our students.

Excellent parent involvement is part of what makes Glenknoll such a special place. As we work together throughout the year, I encourage you to stay in contact with your child’s teacher so we can work together to meet your child’s needs. We hope you will choose to become involved at school by volunteering in the classroom or serving as a member of one of our parent groups. Please consider becoming a member of the PTA.

I am thankful for the superb work that was done by the leaders who came before me. It is my great pleasure to serve this community and be part of a team that is committed to excellence!

Mrs. Terry Mulcahy
