Glenwood Athletic Booster News
Athletic Boosters Plan “Takeover Night” at Buffalo Wild Wings April 27
The Glenwood Athletic Boosters are planning a fundraiser at Buffalo Wild Wings on April 27th.  Present a ticket from the attached flyer and Buffalo Wild Wings® will donate 15% of all pre-taxed food sales, for dine-in and carry-out orders, to the Athletic Boosters. Guests must present a ticket in order for their food purchase to count towards our donation to the boosters. One check per ticket. For example, if a family of four pays on one check, they only need to have one ticket.
Takeover Night groups may not pass out tickets to guests who are arriving or who are already in the restaurant (this includes the parking lot and any BWW property in general); this is considered solicitation and it is prohibited. Any solicitation that occurs on Buffalo Wild Wings property will result in forfeiting of the donation from the Takeover Night.

Welcome Warm Weather!  Please encourage your student to follow the GMS dress code as found on page 23 of the student handbook.  We have been making weekly announcements to remind students of the guidelines that include examples of unacceptable attire that includes clothing that reveals undergarments, tops that expose the shoulders, cleavage, or midriff, short shorts and skirts.  If a student is in violation of the dress code, a parent/guardian will be contacted to bring in acceptable attire. Progressive  discipline will be assigned for repeat offenders.  Please contact the GMS administration if you have any questions.

“We may be different, but in this school we swim together!”
Glenwood Middle School’s Theme this year is based on Fish! , a book written by Stephen C. Lundin.  Students and Staff are working on the following components, which support the PBIS philosophy:
 
 
Choose Your Attitude-The attitude you have now is the one you are choosing.  Is it the one you want?
Be There- Be fully engaged in the moment
Make Their Day- The world becomes a better place the moment you act on an intention to serve.
Respectful Play-It’s not just an activity, it is a state of mind that brings energy and sparks creativity.
 
Check out all of the Fish on display at GMS as we “reel” everyone in to practice these healthy habits!
 
 
What is TPH or Titan Power Hour?
  • Time to receive interventions, which may include academic, social, or emotional support.  In other words, interventions that help further teach strategies that may include math skills, reading skills, or even classroom skills like staying focused and keeping organized
  • Titan Time activities that focus on character education and the PBIS goals of be respectful, responsible, and safe.

END OF DAY RELEASE PROCEDURES

In order to ensure that students are following staff directives and to further facilitate student safety, we have changed the end-of-day release. Our new procedures are as follows:

·               All students who participate in extra-curricular activities, walk home, or are picked up from school will be dismissed at 3:32 p.m. 
 
·               Students who ride a bus home from school are to stay with their ninth hour teacher until an announcement is made that their bus has arrived.  
 
Please know that students are being monitored so that they have enough time to go to their lockers, get their materials and get to their buses on time.  We appreciate your support in relation to these new procedures.
 


DELIVERIES FOR STUDENTS
 

In order to ensure an orderly and safe environment, the delivery of balloons, flowers or other similar items to students is not allowed.

 

    

 

Regular School Day hours are 8:29 a.m. - 3:32 p.m.
