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.

September is Attendance Awareness Month

Parents, September is Attendance Awareness Month. We want to remind all of our parents and students about the importance of good attendance at school. Everyday that a student is absent from school, an opportunity is lost for learning. It is important to know that:

  • Everyday at school counts.
    A student’s attendance directly correlates to their academic performance.
  • Studies show that poor attendance in early grades (K-3) can have a major influence on whether a child can read proficiently by the end of 3rd grade.
  • Every piece matters. Every day counts.

Thank you for your support. If you have any questions, please contact the school at (828) 654-3225.

Movie Night

Marlow Movie Night Friday, September 29th

Parents enjoy a night alone while your student joins teachers and classmates for a movie night at school! On Friday September 29th, we will be showing “The Super Mario Brothers Movie.”

The night will include a pizza dinner, freshly popped popcorn, and fun with friends. Students are invited to wear their pajamas, bring their water bottles, and bring their favorite items to cozy up during the movie with. The doors will open at 6:00 pm with a pick up time at 8:30 pm.

How to sign your student(s) up:

  1. Please sign up using the Google Form. If you have multiple students attending please fill out the form more than once. This allows the teachers working the event to have contact information for your student.
  2. Make it official by paying for the event. Payments can be made through School Cash Online.

Mark your calendar for a night of fun! September 29 at 6 pm! If you have any questions please email Mrs. Summey at cosummey@hcpsnc.org.

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!
