A legacy of learning, a community of excellence.

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 children’s 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.

Box Tops for Education

A Marlow Box-Top Challenge

Dear Marlow Family,

We are kicking off a new Box Tops for Education leaderboard challenge that is running 011/21/2022 through 12/16/2022!

The goal is to have your child’s classroom be in first place on the Fall Leaderboard. The winning class will earn a special reward party when they return from Winter Break!

Here’s how it works:

  • Make sure you are registered in the Box Tops app. If not, be sure to use the referral code LEEY04NE to give the school bonus tops!
    Buy Box Tops products during the holiday season, and scan your receipt with the Box Tops app within 14 days of purchase. Digital receipts are also accepted! (a list of Box Tops items can be found on the website and the app).
  • After scanning your receipt, make sure Glenn C. Marlow Elementary School is your selected school in the app.
  • Tap on Give Credit to select your child’s classroom. You can scroll down to add a note with your child’s name or additional information on who should get credit.
    The number of Box Tops earned with your receipt will be credited to the classroom you selected. Credits will not be dispersed properly if a classroom is not selected.
  • To see where your child’s classroom stands on our leaderboard, open the Box Tops app, tap on the school card on the Home screen and check out Fall Leaderboard on the school dashboard.

Want to give credit for a digital or email receipt? Go into the Box Tops app, tap on the My Earnings button at the top of the screen and tap on the transaction you’d like to credit. Scroll past the list of products and tap on Give Credit at the bottom of the screen. Then, select your child’s classroom.

Let’s have some fun and help Glenn C. Marlow Elementary School get our students what they need to succeed!

Thank you,

Lori Hayden – Box Tops Coordinator

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!
