Message from the Principal

  • Dear Glendale Families, 


    Welcome back to the 2020-2021 school year! As the new principal let me be the first to share with you how excited our staff is to begin a new year of building relationships and empowering each student for college, career, and life success. 

    This year will undoubtedly look different due to our vigilance in keeping our students and staff Covid free. Yet, our commitment to reaching every student, every day remains the same. 

    Providing students with the tools to be successful in and outside of the classroom is essential. Sean Covey’s 7 Habits of Happy Kids will be the program we use to ensure our scholars develop leadership skills. We are also setting a goal to increase parental involvement, because the best teacher of every child is their parents. At Glendale there will continue to be amazing events for students and families so please follow us on  Twitter @GLESVikes for school information and @glendaleohpta for PTA news.


    As your principal, I commit to working with each and every family, so if there is ever a need feel free to contact me at or 513 864-1300.  


    Yours Truly, 

    Karen N. Harkness
