The Take Pride in America program is a national program authorized by Congress to promote the appreciation and stewardship of public lands, including parks, forests, historic sites, and schools. Take Pride in America is active in all fifty states with public, private, and nonprofit organizations.
The Take Pride Schools program was launched in the fall of 2005 to introduce a new generation to volunteerism and create future stewards of our public lands. To be designated as a Take Pride School, a school must commit to participating in two Take Pride volunteer events each school year, benefiting public lands. Participation must be on public land (including school grounds), promote the Take Pride in America message, and benefit public use of public land.
At the beginning of 2009, Glendale Jr./Sr. High became the first school in Pennsylvania to join this national program.
Student Council is responsible for hosting a variety of events throughout the school year. These include school dances, such as Homecoming and others as decided throughout the year, and numerous spirit days.

If you have any suggestions or concerns regarding any of Student Council’s activities, please don’t hesitate to contact us.
