Marlow Monday Message, May 8th, 2023

Henderson County Public Schools News

Good evening Glenn Marlow families!

It was another magnificent Monday at Marlow today, as we kicked off Teacher / Staff Appreciation Week with an awesome “Parfait Bar” this morning, with our amazing teachers and staff enjoying breakfast to start their day. It was delicious! Thank you, Marlow PTO!

Students and parents, continue all this week showing your appreciation for our teachers and staff, and what they do each and every day.

In fact, tomorrow is “Dress Like Your Teacher’ Day! Have some fun with that, and show that appreciation by dressing like your teacher.

A big shout-out to Ms. Roberts and Ms. Jones’ EC classes, who did such a great job at the HC Special Olympics last Friday. They were true champions and were great representatives of Marlow Elementary! We had a great send-off for them Friday morning. See pictures below.

Fun fact: After today, only three (3) Mondays remain in the school year! Can you feel the excitement?

With Mustang Pride,

John Hart
