Henderson County Public Schools News

Good evening Glenn Marlow parents and students, this is John Hart with your Marlow Monday Message on this Monday, June 1st. We are in the home stretch! We have a busy week planned with Materials/Student belongings collection/End of year Celebrations, as well as Kindergarten and 5th Grade graduation “drive-thrus.” We are looking forward to seeing everyone one more time before the summer!

Here are this week’s news and notes:

  • We had a great collection today for First Grade and Ms. King’s class. As a reminder this week, we will NOT be collecting student Chromebooks this week of unless you are withdrawing from Glenn Marlow Elementary and Henderson County Public Schools for next year. Student Chromebooks will be collected later in the summer, the week of July 27. To keep this week running as smooth as possible, it will be important for you to attempt to come on the day assigned for your student’s grade level.
    • Tuesday, June 2nd – Third Grade 8:30 – 12 noon
      • Second Grade 12 noon – 3:30
    • Wednesday, June 3rd – Kindergarten (After drive-thru graduation 11 am – 1 pm

    • Friday, June 5th – Fourth Grade 8:30 – 12 noon
    • Friday, June 5th – Anyone who has not yet come 12 noon – 3:30
  • Just like our first collection, we will have the Pardee/UNC Health Donation Bin out in the front entrance, marked with cones on each side. Parents, we ask that you place all completed work in a sealed plastic bag with your child’s name, teacher and grade level on it. If you do not have a bag, there will be some on site on a table next to the bin for you
  • “Drive-thru’ graduations have been set for our Kindergarten and 5th grade students. Parents, please mark your calendars:
    • Kindergarten Drive-thru Graduation:Wednesday, June 3rd, 11am – 1pm
      • Last name A – L, 11 am – 12 pm
      • Last name M – Z, 12 pm – 1 pm

      • Last name A – L, 10 am – 11 am
      • Last name M – Z, 11 am – 12 pm
    • Although we are bummed that we cannot have our traditional graduation ceremonies, we are so excited for our graduates, and are looking forward to celebrating with them in this unique way! We do ask that all KI and G5 students and parents abide by these guidelines to ensure a smooth event:
      • Students and families need to arrive sometime in the window of time provided according to the first letter of their last name.
      • Students and families will remain in their car at all times. Blended families may have two vehicles. Please have the student sit in the rear passenger seat for a photo opportunity we have planned.
      • Only cars, trucks, SUVs and family vans will be permitted.
      • There can be no gathering or waiting for others while on school property.
      • Any student with transportation or safety concerns should contact the school to discuss other options for picking up their recognition materials.
    • Thank you for your cooperation with this. We look forward to a unique celebration!!
  • And yes…the 2020-2021 Kindergarten registration is still live!! Please visit the HCPS website OR our school website to access the online registration. You may also access it by going to the HCPSNC Kindergarten Enrollment website. This online form can be accessed by smartphone or computer, and parents will be asked to upload required documents, i.e. birth certificate and proof of residence. If you are unable to complete this at home, we do have a KI Registration Chromebook set up at Marlow in the main hallway, including sanitizer and wipes to keep everything clean. If you need any help completing this form, please do not hesitate to call the school (828) 654-3225.
  • Don’t forget — mark your calendars! The 2020 Marlow Virtual Talent Show will premiere on Tuesday, June 2nd at 7 pm. The link will be available on the Marlow school website. It will also be sent to student email accounts and through SchoolMessenger.
  • And lastly, we received notification last week that due to production/publishing plant closings across the region and country, the 2019-2020 Marlow Yearbooks will not be in until the summer. We are sad not to be able to get these to you before school is out, however, we will send a message out when they arrive for pickup. Stay tuned!!

Next Monday, June 8th, will be the last Monday Message of the year.

Thank you for all that you do. Please do not hesitate to contact me directly at jehart@hcpsnc.org if you have any questions or need additional support. Stay safe and healthy everyone
