Marlow Monday Message, November 27th, 2017
Good evening Glenn Marlow parents and students, this is John Hart with your Marlow Monday message on this Monday, November 27th. I hope everyone had a restful and wonderful Thanksgiving Break. It was great seeing all our Buckaroos back in the school building today, and working hard. Now, here is this week’s news and upcoming events:
– Mark your calendars for our December Movie Night, next Friday, Dec. 8th. Parents, what an opportunity you have to get some Christmas shopping done, or run those last couple of errands. Flyers will be coming home this week, so be sure to sign up and return them to school no later than Friday morning, Dec. 8th. We hope to see all of our Buckaroos there.
— Don’t forget that Thursday, December 14th is Christmas Lunch in our cafeteria for 3rd, 4th, 5th, and Ms. Taddei’s classes. A sign-up sheet will be coming home to parents. Please return the completed form back to your child’s teacher no later than Tuesday, Dec. 12th. Parent volunteers are needed that day to help with lunch, as well as helping deliver lunch to our K-2 students. Please contact Kjersten Smith, our PTO volunteer coordinator, if you would like to help out.
– Don’t forget about purchasing your 2017-2018 Marlow yearbook. As a reminder, all yearbook orders are online this year. Yearbooks start at $17, with add-ons available for additional charges. You can find the online order form on our school web page. Take this time to order a Glenn Marlow yearbook today!
-Lastly, as we have entered into the cold season of the 2017-2018 school year, 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, and although there are no confirmed cases of pertussis, commonly known as whooping cough, at Glenn Marlow, we do want you to be aware of what is going on in our school system and our community. Washing your hands with soap and water, covering your nose and mouth when sneezing or coughing, keeping your distance from others who may be sick, and wiping down and disinfecting surfaces that may contain germs are just a few preventative steps you can take to ensure your children and your household remain 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. As stated in Dr. Bryant’s earlier message, if your child continues to cough, please contact our school nurse, Kim Ball. Thank you, in advance, for being proactive in these actions that help control the spread of germs and illnesses in our school. Again, if you have any questions, please feel free to call our school nurse, Kim Ball, here at school.
Thank you for all that you do, and have a great week.
