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's Got Talent

Save the date for Friday, March 17th for Marlow’s Got Talent, and watch as our amazing students showcase their talents.

New this year to the Talent Show evening is a Hot Dog supper served before hand.  We would like to invite all our Marlow families to come and enjoy a hot dog supper beforehand, beginning at 5:00pm, and the Talent Show beginning at 6:00.  Even if you did not send back an RSVP for dinner, you can still come and eat.  Hot dog plates are $5 and all proceeds go directly back to into our classrooms.  Come on out!

Snowy Weather

Winter Weather Policies

With winter now officially here, and the possibility of winter weather in the forecast, it’s time for a reminder of our winter weather policies and procedures. As soon as Henderson County has made a decision on school closing or delay, you will receive an automated phone call from the Central Office stating that decision.  Other ways to receive information is to periodically check the HCPS website, join the Henderson County Public Schools Facebook page or Twitter site, or the WLOS News 13 website.

If inclement weather begins during the day, or if there is a threat of inclement weather during the day, an early dismissal may be called and school will close early. Please remember that if school closes early for inclement weather, PSPM will also be closed.

We want to ensure students travel home the correct way and arrive safely and in a timely manner. Thank you for your patience and understanding.  If you have any questions, please feel free to call the school.

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!
