Eagles Family Newsletter

Monday, March 22, 2021

Dear Eagle Families,

Welcome to our informational newsletter for John Glenn High School! I just wanted to say thank you to everyone who has read our newsletters. There is going to be one change to our newsletter. Instead of it being a bi-monthly newsletter, it will now be a monthly newsletter, starting on April 1st. We encourage you to look through each edition, where you will find the most up-to-date information regarding school events, news and important information regarding your student's high school experience. I would love to hear your feedback on other information you would like to read about in the newsletter. Email me at framirez@nlmusd.k12.ca.us with any suggestions. Si prefiere, puede cambiar el idioma de este boletín al español, a la mano derecha, donde dice "Translate Newsletter."


Sincerely,

Mr. F. Ramirez
