Qdoba Fundraiser on Tuesday, May 15th

Look for a flyer to come home with your child on Monday for our PTO's dining fundraiser on Tuesday, May 15th. It will be held at Qdoba, 5075 S. 76th St., in Greenfield from 5:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. When you bring your copy of the flyer (or show the flyer on your mobile device) a portion of the proceeds from your purchase will be donated back to our school. Please know that this offer applies whether you choose to dine-in or take-out. Thank you once again for your amazing support!

Color Run Information

A letter will be coming home on Monday with more information about the Color Run event. Please check your child's backpack for the information. Please notify your child's classroom teacher or the front office if you did not receive one. This letter will explain the event and has the start time for each grade level.

Thanks for the Appreciation

A big thank you to everyone who helped make Teacher Appreciation Week a successful one. Local businesses made sure our staff was well fed this week. Our PTO, and Sunshine Chair, Mrs. Addy, did a wonderful job spoiling our teachers this week with fun gifts each day as well as setting up the Appreciation Station. Finally, thank you for coming out and cheering on our teachers during the assembly on Friday.

Arbor Day - Thank you!!

I just want to say thank you to the staff and families who helped plant our 28 new trees around Glenwood. I appreciate you giving up your time on a VERY beautiful Saturday morning to help improve the outdoor landscaping around our school!
