WEEK OF SEPTEMBER 19, 2022
Message from the Principal
Students & Parents,
I hope you enjoyed this beautiful weekend!
It was great to spend time with some of our parents at our first "Coffee with the Principal" event last Friday. We look forward to hosting more of those throughout the school year.
We have another opportunity for parent engagement this Thursday at our first Parent University of the school year. Parent University is a series of interactive workshops for ALL GLOW families aimed to support students through middle and high school. We hope you'll join us this Thursday from 6-7:30 PM in Founders Hall; dinner will be served. More information can be found in the newsletter below. Also, please use the link under the Parent University info to RSVP so we can better plan for dinner.
Wishing you all a great week ahead!

WHO TO CONTACT
Reminder: No Lunch Deliveries
Parents, we want to remind you that lunch deliveries from delivery services or from restaurants by parents are NOT allowed. If a student who packs her lunch forgets it at home a parent may drop off that lunch (in a lunch box/bag) to the front office. No other deliveries are permissible.
LUNCH (from Student Parent Handbook p. 9)Just as students must be prepared daily with all instructional materials needed for school, they must also prepare in advance for lunch. GLOW Academy participates in the National School Lunch Program and offers all students FREE lunch daily. Students may choose to eat school lunch or bring lunch from home. Students may NOT have food delivered to school during the day, and students may not order lunch from a delivery service to be delivered to campus. Please note that food delivery orders delivered to students at school will NOT be given to the student; a school lunch will be offered instead.
