Good evening Glenn Marlow parents and students, this is John Hart with your Marlow Monday Message on this Monday, January 6th. I hope everyone had a wonderful and restful holiday break, and your 2020 is off to a great start! We had a great day at school today, and it was great to see all out students and staff working hard in the building. Let’s make 2020 the best year yet!
Now, here is this week’s news and upcoming events:
- Glenn Marlow Elementary School is once again collecting used children’s books for the Smart Start book sale on Saturday, February 29th. Proceeds from this book sale are used to purchase new age-appropriate books, which are mailed to preschool children in Henderson County each month through the Dolly Parton Imagination Library. If you have any new or used books you would like to get rid of, please deposit your donated books in the Smart Start collection boxes located at the front entrance and plan to attend the sale on February 29th at Grace Lutheran Church. Thank you for helping our young children instill a love of reading!
- The Marlow K-Kids will have their next meeting this Thursday, January 9th, from 3 – 3:45, in the Theater. All K-Kids members need to attend.
- Attention all Marlow Dads! The Marlow Dads ‘n Donuts group will be meeting for breakfast this Saturday, January 11 at 8:30 am at Kosta’s Kitchen in Fletcher. This group is designed for Marlow Dads to come together for connection, fellowship, and doing great things for our school. If you are unable to join us, but would still like to be a part of the group, please send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
As we begin the ‘second half’ of school year, please remember these safety tips and practices while at school. Our number one priority is to keep everyone safe, and although sometimes inconvenient, these practices are in place for everyone.
- Parents, please remember that anyone signing out a student other than the parents must be on their green contact sheet in the front office.
- Make sure that everyone brings proper identification to the office.
- Please do not let your children cross the road/thruway by themselves in the morning or afternoon.
- In the morning car rider line, once the 8:00 bell has sounded, we will place the blue tardy sign on the sidewalk. Parents, if this sign is out, you must walk your child in and sign them in.
These are measures that we all must take to ensure that are students are safe while here at school. Thank you so much for your cooperation in this.
And lastly, as we have entered into the cold season of the 2019-2020 school year, please make sure that you and your child are taking the proper steps necessary to stay healthy during this time of year. 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. 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 good night.
