Wellness Resources


Hello Glenwood Families,

     How are you? If you were to ask me this question, my answer(s) would be different every time! I’ve been feeling scared, hopeful, lonely, inspired, frustrated, and bored to name only a FEW of my feelings! This is a very uncertain time in our community, our country, and our world – and in our families’ and friends’ lives. Feeling lots of different emotions is very normal when we’re confronting so many changes in our usual routines.

     Going forward, I’ll be using this page to share some resources for Glenwood kids and caregivers to help you all stay as healthy as possible and manage your many feelings, just like I do when we’re together at school. We plan on adding new links at least weekly, but if you have a specific question for me or if you find a great resource  you’d like me to share, please send an email at ghedi-ehrlichd@springfieldpublicschools.com (Ms. G).

     We are excited to have recently added a new counselor too! Her name is Steffanie Accorsi and her email is accorsis@springfieldpublicschools.com – she would also love to hear from you with questions, concerns, or useful links to share.

     Please know that you are missed and loved and we are keeping you in our hearts. We look forward to seeing everyone again as soon as we can!

Ms. G and Ms. A
