Activities

From the time the opening bell sounds at 9 am until the final bell rings at 3:35 pm, students at Gladwyne Elementary find themselves in a continuous state of learning each day in varying academic, social, athletic, and community activities. The building blocks of a truly great education are born by combining students who have a thirst for knowledge with a talented and caring staff who will do whatever it takes to see our children succeed. Students have a wide range of activities to choose from which help to foster their growth outside of their academic requirements.

Learn a Language!

The Foreign Language Club is an 11 week long, after school program sponsored by the Home & School Association featuring instructors certified in teaching French, Italian, Chinese, Latin, Russian, Japanese, Arabic and American Sign Language. Classes cost $75 and students meet with instructors one day a week, across 11 weeks, on either Tuesdays or Thursdays, and, at the close, each class gives a presentation on the language for parents.
