MESSAGE FROM THE PRINCIPAL
Much like we prioritize learning for our students, we also place high value on opportunities for learning opportunities for our staff through professional development. As a result, we have scheduled three 1/2 days throughout the school year for this purpose, in addition to the workdays scattered throughout the school year. The first of these three 1/2 days is scheduled for this Wednesday, September 15.
As such, please note that students will be dismissed at 1 PM this Wednesday.
Wishing our students and families another great week at GLOW,
