CURRENT EVENTS
  
Holiday Gift Drive

The holidays can be a stressful time for families living in low-income households. 

 

Glenwood has a longstanding tradition of reaching out to others during the holidays.  The Glenwood Outreach Committee works with St. Rose of Lima in Newark to provide gifts for children who might otherwise have nothing.  After signing up and selecting the number of children you would like to help, your family will be matched with a family needing assistance.

 

You will be given the age, gender, clothing size and gift wishes of the child.  There are no restrictions on number of gifts or expense. Anything you can give will be appreciated.  Gifts due in mid-December. 

 

 

 

Glenwood General PTO Meeting - December 9th at 9am

 

Please save the date for our second General PTO Meeting of the year as we welcome Detective Socrates Barbosa, of the Millburn Police Department, who will do a presentation on keeping your kids safe in a digital age.  A presentation not to be missed by parents of kids of any age in our digital world!

 

Date:  December 9th, 2022

Time:  9:00 AM

Where:  Glenwood School Multi-Purpose Room

 

Celebrate your child's birthday with a donation to the Glenwood library.

 

Click here to register with a monetary donation of your choosing by December 16th.  

 

Our Glenwood librarians will use the funds to purchase new books for our library. Your child will come to the library on a special selection day and choose a book from the collection. A special book plate with your child's name will be placed in the book to identify the donation for years to come. Your child will be the first to check out his/her book and will have an opportunity to share it with their class and with you at home.

 

Please note that this program runs only one time during the school year, regardless of when the birthday actually occurs. Book selection will take place in the spring.
