  • Attention 4th and 5th Grade Parents: The 10th season of the Marlow Run Club will begin on Monday, March 16th but registration must be completed no later than Wednesday, February 26th. There will not be any exceptions once the deadline passes, so please don’t delay if your child would like to participate. It is open to all 4th and 5th grade boys and girls. Run Club payments can be made online through the Online Payment link under the Parent Information tab of our school website, but students MUST complete a Marlow Rub Club registration form. If you need a form either contact Mr. Kinsey at, or have your child stop by his room to pick one up. Thank you!
  • Because of the missed school days last week, 3rd Quarter midterms will be distributed and/or made available on the Parent Portal on Wednesday, February 27th. As always, parents, please take this time to talk with your child about his or her academic progress, your plans for continued success, upcoming class assignments, and strategies to improve performance as we prepare for your child’s achievement throughout the year. Grades 3-5 parents, if you are having trouble logging into the Parent Portal, please contact Karen Galloway here at school for further assistance. If you would like a paper copy of the midterm, please send in a request of one to your child’s teacher.

Thank you for all that you do, and have a good night.
