Next week is homecoming week for Gladwin Community Schools. The elementary school is having a fun spirit week that is optional for families to choose to participate in. Fliers will be sent home with the schedule but here is a sneak peak.
Picture Day is tomorrow, September 26th, at the elementary school. We cannot wait to see all the beautiful smiles.
Canned Food Drive This week our high school is participating in a canned food drive against Clare High School. The elementary school is combining efforts to help our high school collect non-perishable food items and hygiene items. All of the collected goods in Gladwin Schools will go to the Gladwin County Food Pantry. The friendly competition between the two schools will basically come down to having bragging rights and the coveted Food Bowl trophy. Last year, Gladwin High School had a decisive victory over Clare. Gladwin Elementary School will be collecting the non-perishable food items and hygiene items Tuesday through Friday this week. Please have your child bring their items to your child's classroom and the elementary school will get them to the high school. The elementary school class that collects the most items will win a classroom pizza party. Let's work together with the high school the next few days to collect some important goods and have some fun at the same time while collecting some important goods for our community. Thanks for your support.

Good morning elementary families. I want to pass along information about a situation in Beaverton. There was a shooting in Beaverton and although we have no reason to believe there is any danger to our students, out of an abundance of caution we will be operating our buildings in secure mode and will be continuing to cooperate with local law enforcement.

The school district needs to make up days of schools due to the large number of snow days we had this school year. Attached is the revised school calendar reflecting the added days to the calendar.

Here is an informational video on the May 2nd Bond Proposal. This video includes preliminary renderings of what the building will be like if voters approve the bond. https://youtu.be/ofU63DerDI8
School is back in session tomorrow, April 3rd. We have a 4-day week as we do not have school on Friday, April 7th. This is also a reminder that it is spring and we do ask that families make sure their children are still bringing a coat to school as the temperatures fluctuate quite a bit this time of year.
Just a reminder that next week, March 27-31, we will be on spring break and there will not be school. School is back in session on Monday, April 3. Hope you have a wonderful spring break.
As we get closer to the election, we want to inform everyone how the bond will impact their taxes. To calculate the impact of the bond on your taxes, take the taxable value of your home and multiply it by .0028 to find the annual cost. Be sure to use the taxable value from your Notice of Assessment. I have included the video on how to do this below: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8IV0GFOiXwo
Young Fives and Kindergarten sign-ups for next school year are happening on April 11-13. See the attached flier for more information.
