WEEK OF OCTOBER 3, 2022
Message from the Principal
Students & Parents,
We hope that your family navigated the impacts of Hurricane Ian safely. We know, all too well, the damage and destruction hurricanes can cause, so our thoughts remain with those in Florida and the Carolinas who were negatively impacted last week.
As we continue to work to improve our communication between our school and your homes, we have added additional links to our GLOW Website that we wanted to bring to your attention. Under the "Parent Resources" menu at the top, you can now find "GLOW Parent Weekly Updates," the site that will hold the archives of our GLOW Gazette Family Newsletters. In that same menu, you will also see "AM Announcements." This year, for our Morning Announcements we have been creating a video that students watch at the beginning of their 1st period class. We are uploading these to the "AM Announcements" site for parents to view, as well.
We are looking forward to having students back on campus this week, and hope your family is looking forward to a great week ahead!
Kate B. Tayloe
