Glenn C. Marlow Elementary

Glenn C. Marlow Elementary School

Glenn C. Marlow Elementary School serves children in Mills River and Fletcher communities.  Since the birth of our school we have enjoyed great successes and growth. There are many ways to judge an institution’s performance.  We believe that our community shines in all categories.  Our children come from loving and supportive homes. This in turn makes working with children and parents a joy.

We are proud of our beautiful facilities. Marlow’s staff is second to none with twenty-two teachers having National Board Certification.  Every employee at Glenn C. Marlow works hard to make childrens’ educational experiences positive ones.  Many on our staff have won awards and recognitions, such as:

North Carolina Principal of the Year
Outstanding Bus Driver of the Year
Four District-Level Teachers of the Year
Fulbright Scholar to Japan
Who’s Who Among American Teachers

We hope you find Glenn Marlow Elementary to be a warm, inviting and caring school where children are encouraged to reach their maximum potential. Our staff’s priority is your child’s safety and education. If you are new to the area and would like a tour of Glenn C. Marlow, please call the office at (828) 654-3225. We are happy to schedule a tour with one of our PTO parents.

Boosterthon 2016-2017

Boosterthon is Here!

Boosterthon is much more than just a fundraiser– it’s a team-building exercise that teaches our students valuable character lessons, it encourages physical fitness, and it’s incredibly fun! Last year, we had a great time with Boosterthon, and ended up raising over $23,000 to purchase new technology and a playground for our school.

We kicked off our Boosterthon event starting with an opening pep rally on April 3rd. All week, our students are helping to raise money for Glenn Marlow, while the Boosterthon team is sharing a different character-building lesson each day. We finish off the week with a Boosterthon Fun Run on April 12th!

Let’s make this year’s Boosterthon just as fun and successful as last year. As always, thank you to our friends, family, and community for your continued support of Glenn Marlow Elementary!

See the below link for the Goals for this year’s Boosterthon!

As we come up on the Boosterthon event for this school year, take a look at our Boosterthon Fun Run video from 2015-2016!

It gives a good idea of the awesome time we had as a school, with our friends and family a huge part of it. We are excited for Boosterthon to start on April 3rd!


Spring Break

Spring Break will take place April 17th through April 21st. School will be closed for all students and staff.

We hope our Buckaroos and their families have a relaxing, restful vacation, and come back to school ready to push towards the end of the year!

Creating a Parent Portal Account in PowerSchool and Setting Email Notifications

Parents and families– interested in keeping up with your child’s grades, growth, and attendance at school?

You can create a Parent Portal account in Powerschool, which will allow you to access your child’s information at home. Not only that, but you can also set up e-mail notifications, so all new items go straight to your e-mail inbox. This is a great way to keep track of your child’s grade in class, days your child has missed, and more.

Tutorial videos are available below to assist you in creating a Parent Portal account, and in setting e-mail notifications. Please check them out!
