Glenwood Intermediate School will be starting Hoops for Heart this week. Partnering with the American Heart Association we will be learning how to take care of our hearts and raising money in the battle against heart disease. Last year GIS raised $ 7,255. We have set our goal for $8250 and would love for you to be a part of our team. The kick-off assembly took place on February 11 where our own heart hero, Charlie Batton, will share his heart story and how the money we raise can help others just like him. The end date will be Friday February 28. All money needs to be turned into the GIS office by this date. On the 11th forms will be passed out to start your fundraising and/or you may click on the link below to sign up. Click here for the GIS Hoops For Heart website.
Glenwood Intermediate School students are in the process of learning about primaries, caucuses, and the electorate. Many are following along closely the results of the primaries and researching the presidential candidates and their messages. In addition, many students will be watching and reflecting on President Obama’s speech that he delivered in Springfield, then categorizing his message in terms of state and/or national relevance.
Parents of next year’s sixth grade students are invited to attend Question & Answer Night on Wednesday, February 3 at 6:30 p.m. If you cannot make the event, please find below the items that will be distributed:
Ball-Chatham principals and superintendent met in December to review current procedures for determining when our schools would hold outdoor recess. Principals had referred to the Child Care Weather Watch chart as a basis for recommending to hold outdoor recess if the “feels like” temperature was 18 degrees or higher. However, after discussion the team agreed to amend the practice to hold outdoor recess if the “feels like” temperature is 20 degrees or higher.
As always, when school is in session during these cold winter months please ensure that your children are dressed as warmly as possible (multiple layers), and that outerwear is rated for sub-zero temperatures.
