Good evening, Marlow families!

We finished off Week 2 of the ’22-23 school year on Friday with our annual Kindergarten “HCPS Senior Class of 2035” t-shirt distribution. It was awesome, and our Kindergarten Buckaroos love their new shirts! Pictures were posted on Instagram and Twitter!

We also want to send a big shout-out to our amazing PTO for the yummy treat our staff received Friday afternoon! It was greatly appreciated!

We had a great day today to start the week, looking to continue that all week long, and celebrating Friday with a Marlow Spirit Day and Elementary Night at the WHHS Football game on Friday night.

In this week’s Marlow Monday Edition:

Have a great Monday, and thank you for all that you do!
