Attention 8th Grade Students and Parents/Guardians:

This week, your School Counselors have finished classroom presentations regarding high school scheduling. Beginning next week, your School Counselor will be meeting with you individually to register your 9th grade course requests. This process will start next week and carry through the majority of February.

Parents/guardians: Once we meet with your student individually, they will bring home a copy of their course registration sheet for you to review. If you approve of your student's course requests, we ask that you sign the course registration sheet and have your student return it to their counselor. If you have questions/concerns/etc. regarding your student's course requests, feel free to reach out to your student's School Counselor to discuss.

If any parent/guardian would like to be a part of their student's individual scheduling meeting, please reach out to your child's School Counselor.

Parents!  We want to remind everyone of the withdraw procedure that is in place at Glenwood.  If you are planning on moving your student from Glenwood to another school, you should pick up a withdraw form in the office (or your child can bring it home).  This ensures that we have all the information needed to process the withdrawal.  Teachers can collect outstanding work, library and classroom books as well as Chromebooks can be accounted for which avoids unnecessary fines and fees and the office will have account of what school should be requesting records. Outstanding fees also need to be paid and lockers should also be completely cleaned out prior to leaving.

Once we get a records request from the new school we will send them everything they need to enroll the student.  We cannot withdraw a child from our building without proof that they are enrolled elsewhere.  Following this procedure avoids unnecessary attendance calls home and accurate grade recording.  If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact us.  

Has your family moved recently?  Are you getting married or divorced or have custody changes for your student?  We need documentation of these events for the students permanent records, so don’t forget to let us know and please drop off copies to the office.
