With fall weather temperatures starting with cooler mornings and warm afternoons, we want to encourage families to send students with a sweatshirt/jacket. We have lots of students borrowing sweatshirts and jackets from the school which is fine but having your child bring their own will help with the amount of kids having to borrow clothing.
Picture day is this Tuesday, September 27th, at the elementary school. I am including a direct link to access online ordering. https://store.geskusphoto.com/clients/gladwin-elementary-school/gladwin-elementary-school-22-23-fall/access

Gladwin Community Schools is launching a new mobile app to help students, parents, and community members know what is happening on campus from their phones. Most families use their phones as a primary means of communication, so we've created an app that is custom-built for smartphones. On the app, students, parents, and community can read the latest announcements, locate staff contact information, review upcoming events, and find important documents. The Gladwin Community Schools app is available to download free from the Apple App Store or the Google Play store, just search for Gladwin Community Schools and select the app with the Flying G logo. Encourage your friends and family to download the app as well! It is not just for parents and students, anyone in the community is encouraged to use the app to stay informed. Here are direct links to the app! Download for Android https://bit.ly/3JnJvsK Download for iPhone https://apple.co/3zqRm4b
