Marlow Monday Message, May 1st, 2023

Henderson County Public Schools News

Good evening, Marlow families!

Welcome May! Kinda wish it was a little warmer this morning for the first day of May, but nonetheless, it was another great day at Marlow Elementary.

I want to give a big shout-out to Ms. Dina Waxman, our Media Coordinator, for organizing and facilitating a fantastic Spring Book Fair. In total, just a shade over $14,000 in sales was calculated for the week….That is outstanding! Thank you to all who came out to help, shop, and support our school. It was a great success!

Next week is Teacher/Staff Appreciation Week! All next week, we are asking our students and parents to show how much we appreciate all the Glenn Marlow teachers and staff. Please join me in saying ‘thank you’ for all that you do each and every day. They truly make a difference the lives of all our students, and are integral part at making Glenn Marlow the amazing school it is today!

Of course, please keep in tune to all of the end of year events, activities, parties, trips, and graduations that are coming up from now until June 9th. This is such a wonderful time of the school year, as we celebrate our students, your children, and all their hard work this year. They have earned it!

With Mustang Pride,

John Hart
