Good evening Glenn Marlow parents and students! I hope everyone enjoyed the weekend, as we continue onward and upward through this unprecedented school year. Students were reminded this morning during announcements that this is the last week of 3rd quarter. It officially ends on Thursday, March 11th, so any missed assignments that can still be turned in, please get it done this week! And with that, just a reminder that there is no school for students on Friday, March 12th– it is an Optional Teacher Workday.
Here is this week’s Marlow Monday Message:
- Glenn Marlow Elementary School is collecting boxed cereal for the Interfaith Assistance Ministries program here in Henderson County. Between now and next Friday (March 19th), we are asking students to bring in a new, unopened, family-size box of cereal and drop it off in their homeroom. Our goal is to collect over 500 boxes! With the boxed cereal collected, we will form ‘cereal-box domino chain’ that will hopefully extend throughout the entire school, and will watch the boxes fall one-by-one in a domino chain. To look at a video of another school doing a Cereal Box Domino Challenge, click on this link to see what it looks like:
We are looking to giving back to our community and having some fun while doing it! Thank you so much!
- As many of you are aware, the bridge that crosses I-26 on Butler Bridge Road will be closing next Monday, March 15th, for construction through the remainder of the 2020-2021 school year. Although we understand it will cause inconvenience and occasion delays, we do not anticipate any major changes to our bus routes (Bus 45 and 46) or bus pickup / drop off times. If we do run into a situation where major delays and changes are needed, we will inform those affected immediately.
- Starting next week, the Marlow PTO will be holding its annual Poppy Popcorn Fundraiser. This year, all popcorn orders will be completed online, and the fundraiser will last through Wednesday, March 31st. As soon as the ordering information comes available, we will share it out with everyone.
- As stated last week, the 2021 – 2022 Kindergarten registration is up and running! All registrations need to be completed online at the Kindergarten Registration website. Parents will need to provide a birth certificate and proof of residence for enrollment. If you have any questions regarding Kindergarten enrollment, please do not hesitate to call the school.

From last week….
- Just a reminder that our school day begins at 8am. The doors open at 7:30 am, and it is imperative that we have all students in the building by 8 am to begin their school day on time. For morning car rider line, the earlier you arrive, the better. Traffic coming into the school flows best when cars “alternate the merge” turning into the entrance. Our main goal is to get everyone through the morning line safely, so please be mindful and work together to make this happen! Don’t forget… If you see the blue sign come out on the sidewalk, you must walk inside to sign your child in. Thank you for your help ensuring that your child has a smooth start to their school day.
- Now that all grade levels are back in school full time, I wanted to re-share this document from the NCDHHS regarding COVID-19 screenings and protocols in schools. Please review over this document, and if you have any questions, do not hesitate to call our school nurses, Krista Nelson or Jennifer McAllister. Ultimately, if your child is experiencing any 1 of these 5 target symptoms (fever, chills, new cough, shortness of breath, loss of taste or smell…), please notify their teacher and take them to the doctor. If a COVID test is administered, that student and all siblings must stay home from school until the results have come back. In the long run, “playing it safe” and keeping students home if they are not feeling well will hopefully keep everyone healthy and our school open during this unprecedented time.
Thank you for all that you do. Have a great night!
