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.

Cold and Flu Season

It’s cold and flu season!

Please make sure that you and your child are taking the proper steps necessary to stay healthy during this time of year.  We are already beginning to see some high absentee numbers because of illnesses in school.

Using methods such as washing your hands with soap and water, covering your nose and mouth when sneezing or coughing, and wiping down and disinfecting surfaces that may contain germs will help your children and your household stay as healthy as possible.

If your child is sick, we ask that you keep him/her at home until they have been fever free and/or vomit free for at least 24 hours.  If you have questions or concerns, please contact our school nurse, Kim Ball.

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!
