Pizza and a Show

The Glenwood PTO is sponsoring "Pizza & A Show" on Friday, January 15th. Join us for a night of food, magic and fun, featuring magician, comedian and illusionist Glen Gerard.

Pizza, juice and water will be served at 5:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. There is a $5 cost per family to help cover the cost of pizza. The registration form has been sent home with your child. There are more available in the office as well. To ensure there is enough pizza, you must register ahead of time (by Jan. 13) to take part in the pizza dinner.

The show starts at 6:30 p.m. If you want to skip the pizza and just come for the show, the show is free. All children must be accompanied by an adult family member. We hope to see you at the show!

Question of the Weekend

I am starting a "Question of the Weekend" at Glenwood. The question is posted outside my office on a whiteboard each Friday. Students who are curious about the question and want to answer the question can turn in their answers on Monday in the black mailbox next to the whiteboard outside of my office. I will be announcing students who got the correct answer on our morning announcements.

This weekend's question is, "How does an Arena (like the Bradley Center) change an ice rink into a basketball court?

Good luck researching! Have fun!

Attendance Matters

We take your child's attendance at Glenwood very seriously. It is very important that your child attend each day and they are on time. The state attendance law considers a student "habitually truant" without an acceptable excuse for part or all of 5 days.

It also states that,"a child may not be excused for more than 10 days in a school year." It also carries a fine of $681 issued by the Greenfield Police Department.

Please do everything possible to plan vacations or appointments to miss as little school time as possible.

If you need any assistance with your child's attendance, please call me or our school counselor, Mr. Michuda for assistance. We would be happy to meet with you.

Recess Clothing

The weather has been favorable so far for recess. We know this won't last forever. Please make sure all of our students have hats and gloves to go along with a winter coat and snow pants. This will keep your child dry and make recess more enjoyable. We go outside as long as the windchill and temperature are above zero.

Winter Sickness

This is just a friendly reminder that students need to be clear of vomiting and fever for 24 hours before they return to school. This will help against the spread of the germs and keep our children healthy.
