Marlow Monday Message, October 18th, 2021

Henderson County Public Schools News

Good evening Glenn Marlow parents and students, this is John Hart with your Marlow Monday Message on this Monday, October 18, 2021. Brrr! It sure got cold this weekend! The forecast continues to call for chilly mornings and warm afternoons, so please be sure that your child is dressed appropriately and their names are in their jackets/sweatshirts. This time of year we see our Lost and Found grow exponentially, so hang on to that clothing!

This week’s Shout-Out goes to our awesome Instructional Assistants here at Marlow! Ms. Plount, Ms. Carter, Ms. Outman, Ms. Cavanaugh, Ms. Dippel, Ms. Hogan, Ms. Pate, Ms. Hooper, Ms. Hamill, Ms. Pierce, Ms. Bandy, and Ms. DeVane – All are amazing individuals who go above and beyond the call of duty every day to cover/teach a class, supervise students before and after school, and support our teachers and students. We love them and thank them for all that they do for our students, staff, and school. They are truly irreplaceable! Thank you all!

Here is this week’s Marlow Monday Message:

  • It’s here! Pumpkin Lighting is set for this Thursday night, beginning at 5:30 and going until 8 pm. The weather is looking great, and it is going to be a lot of fun. Raffle baskets are on display in the front office, and below is an attachment of a description of each basket. Raffle tickets are $1 each. Buy as many as you can…there is some great stuff there! Pumpkin Lighting will have food (pizza, hot dogs, and Chick-fil-A), games, a hay ride, smore’s by the firepits, an inflatable, and of course, the class pumpkins on display in the hallways. The raffle basket drawings will be at 7:50 pm in the Gym.
    • Students – Halloween costumes are encouraged to be worn, but please remember that no costume face masks will be allowed.
    • Parents and students – Although a lot of the activities are outside, please remember that, per school board policy, face coverings are required if you are inside the building. Thank you for your understanding and respect of this requirement. We are looking forward to a great night! We hope to see you all there!
  • This week is National School Bus Safety Week, so all you bus riders out there, please review over these 13 safety tips for National School Bus Safety Week. Safety is such a big part of what we teach here at Marlow, in every aspect of the day. We want all of our students to be safe when using school transportation! If you have any questions about school bus safety, please contact Ms. Megan Alessi, our assistant principal in charge of transportation. Thank you!
  • Don’t forget! The 2021 – 2022 Marlow Yearbooks are now on sale! We encourage everyone to order their yearbooks online, however, you can send in your order form if you so choose. This year, yearbooks start at $20, with add-ons available for additional charges. If you have any questions about yearbooks and yearbook ordering, please contact our Yearbook Coordinator, Monica Outman, here at the school.
  • It is hard to believe, but the end of first academic quarter is rapidly approaching. The last day of the first quarter is this Sunday, October 24th, so students, please be sure to have all work, make-up work, and assessments completed by Friday (Oct. 22nd). Q1 Report cards will be available on Thursday, October 28th through the Parent Portal.
  • Also, please note that this Friday, October 22nd, is an Early Release Day for students. School will end at 12noon on Friday. Parents – Please be sure that you communicate with your child’s teacher if your child is going home a different way than they normally do because of the noon dismissal.

From last week’s Marlow Monday Message:

  • Attention students (and parents) – Please do not forget to bring your water bottle with you each day to school. We do have water bottle fillers on each hallway, and since the water fountains are shut down, each student needs to have their water bottle with them each day. For those that need it, we do have spare water bottles and bottled water in the front office, but encourage all students to have their own each day. As well, please be sure to bring a mask with you to school each day. Again, we have extras in the front office, if need be, but encourage students to have their own, and if possible, a few extra in their backpacks if one breaks. Thank you!

Stay safe, warm, and healthy everyone. Thank you, and have a good evening. JHart
