New leadership at Dayton Oaks Elementary School [Glenwood/Glenelg/Dayton]

Dayton Oaks Elementary School will start the new school year with a new principal, Carol DeBord, and a new assistant principal, Heather Tracy.

DeBord was the assistant principal at Forest Ridge Elementary School in Laurel. Tracy was a school counselor at Jacobsville Elementary School in Anne Arundel County. We want to welcome both administrators to the Dayton community.

Glenelg High School will have a new assistant principal, Brein Bayshore, joining the staff. Last year Bayshore was an assistant principal at River Hill High School. Welcome to Glenelg.

A new Glenelg Gladiator mascot costume will debut at the first home football game on Friday, Sept. 6. The new costume was presented to the school by the Glenelg Parent Teacher Student Association. Come to the game to see the new costumed mascot, watch the Glenelg Marching Unit's latest performance, and enjoy a great game of football under the lights at Glenelg High School. Kickoff will be at 7 p.m.

The Glenelg United Methodist Church Preschool (formerly known as the Glenelg United Methodist Church Nursery School) will celebrate its 25th anniversary with an open house on Sunday, Sept. 22, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. A church service and blessing of the staff will precede the open house at 9:30 a.m.

All former and current students, families, and staff are invited to attend. If you know someone who worked at, or attended the preschool, let them know about the open house. They will have an opportunity to reconnect with others who have played a part in the history of the preschool, tour the facility and enjoy some refreshments.

This fall, GUMC is also welcoming a new preschool director, Alex Melnick, and a new preschool board chair, Dana Donohue. For more information about the preschool and the open house, contact Donohue at

The Glenelg United Methodist Church food pantry is in need of donations of groceries, toiletries and household products. Call the church at 410-489-7260 for more information about making donations to help our neighbors in need.

The first day of school for Howard County Public School System students is Monday, Aug. 26. Please watch out for students walking to school and waiting for their school buses. They are excited about returning to school and may not be watching carefully for cars.
