Message from the Principal

GLOW Students & Families,

We hope you had a great weekend!

We enjoyed our Dress Down Day reward last Thursday and Friday, but please note that students are back in uniforms this week. Please ensure that your students is meeting uniform expectations when they come to school each day.

As you check out this week's news and updates from GLOW, we wanted to remind you that this week we will be closing out 3rd Quarter. As a result, Friday is scheduled as an Early Release Day for students. Students will be dismissed at 1 PM on Friday. While this is a 5-day week for students, next week teachers have a workday on Monday, so there will be no school for students next Monday, March 13.

Wishing you all a great week!

Kate B. Tayloe
