Open House for the 2021-2022 school year is scheduled for August 18th, 2021. This is a time for your student to come in to meet their teacher(s) and some of their classmates. Open house begins @ 5:30pm and will end @ 7pm. Hope to see you there!
Class Lists will be posted on the front doors of the school building on August 18th. Class lists will NOT be posted before 3pm. Be sure to register your student asap in order to guarantee there is space for them in a classroom at Glenwood :) Classes are filling up fast. We want your student at Glenwood Elementary and would hate to see them get overflowed to another school due to late registrations. :(
