Put a brick in their stocking
Ball-Chatham Educational Foundation Launches Holiday Campaign with Creative Gift Idea!
This holiday season, please consider supporting our students through the BCEF’s newest fundraising campaign. For $100, you can give an engraved, commemorative brick in honor of your current or graduated child and have it permanently placed at the entrance of Glenwood High School. A certificate showing a representative image of your brick will be mailed to the gift-giver that can be placed in the recipient’s stocking or under the tree this holiday. All bricks will be ordered after the first of the year and installed as soon as weather and time permit. Click here for the order form.

Titan Power Hour (TPH) is the 30 minute class period to help engage and equip students to achieve their unique potential. It is a time to provide individualized intervention services, social/emotional assistance or academic support. With the new quarter beginning on Monday, students may have a change in their TPH teacher as well as a change in the hour in which a student previously had TPH or lunch. Students may qualify for additional academic support based on his/her MAP reading and math scores. A copy and explanation of student scores were sent home with students on October 16th.
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.
The GMS Cafeteria offers a variety of lunch items each day, including a la carte items. Please be aware that a la carte items are not part of a "Type A" lunch. Any student who wishes to eat a la carte items will be charged for them.
End of Day Dismissal 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.
Students can be dropped off after 7:45 a.m.
