WELCOME TO THE GLOVER SCHOOL
Mary Devlin, Principal
Week of October 20th
Don’t forget tonight at Glover School is Friday, October 24th 6:00 pm
Glover PTO Family Event
The Great Pumpkin Wall – Next Friday!: Next week, we hope we have lots of jack-o-lanterns on Friday.
Each Halloween, our students bring in their decorated jack-o-lantern for the day, and leave it outside for viewing. Everyone bringing a pumpkin will receive a Halloween pencil, and take a chance to win a special gift card from a local book store. Our PTO provides book store gift certificates for one student per class (preK-3) randomly selected. At the end of the day, the pumpkins go home with the family.
Who: All Glover When: Friday, October 31th
What: Bring your decorated pumpkins to your school for the day! Leave them on display.
Where: The front portico area will have display shelves set up for your pumpkins
If you have not experienced seeing the Glover pumpkins on display, it is fun to see the traditional Jack-O-Lanterns to the more unusual. A hamburger pumpkin showed up one year. A bat man pumpkin sat on the wall another year. You never know what our children will create unless you come and see!
Missing 158 Updated Emergency Cards
Emergency Cards: Glover has 158 emergency cards not updated. A few weeks back, we had a child here after school for 3 hours and no emergency numbers. Although we love this child, we had no contact information in case of emergency.
Non-profit community flyers can be found in our district’s E-Backpack Community Flyer web page. Check weekly for important flyers pertaining to your children at: http://marbleheadschools.org/flyers
Parent Pick-Up and Drop-Off: Thank you, thank you, thank you. Each morning and afternoon, we appreciate you working with us so well. Most families have shared the drop-off and pick-up procedures with nannies and friends, and the drop-off area is working well. Even on rainy days, your patience and courtesy is appreciated.
Submitted by Dawn Murray, School Nurse
The cold weather is coming to New England; the children go out to recess every day unless there is inclement weather. Please send your children prepared for the weather with appropriate outerwear, hats, mittens and footwear.
Preschool and school age children expend a great deal of energy throughout the day.
Please remember to pack a healthy snack and lunch to help maintain your children’s energy level and metabolism. Try selecting foods from at least three different groups. Mix a variety of dairy products like milk, cheese and yogurt with fresh fruits, vegetables and whole grains to balance out daily nutritional needs.
Physicals and Screening Information:
All Pre Kindergarten, Kindergarten and First grade students are required by Massachusetts General Law CMR220.500 to have a current physical exam dated on or after September 1st 2013, along with documentation of required immunizations in the health office.
Please check your records and send an updated copy of your child’s Health form to the health office by November 3rd, 2014 if you have not already done so.
- In accordance with the Massachusetts Department of Public Health, over the next few months I will be conducting state mandated health screenings in vision, hearing, height, weight and BMI.

After-School Play Dates: Please plan those after-school play dates in advance. If you change dismissal plans, please send in a note to the teacher, rather than call the office.
Occasionally you may have an emergency and be late. Please let your child know to go to the office until you arrive.
Chilly Mornings: Nurse Dawn would like children to dress in layers on chilly fall mornings and warmer afternoons.
Attendance Phone Line: Glover has a 24/7 attendance phone line that you can access by calling 1-781-639-3190 ext 3. When reporting a late arrival, please note the lunch your child wants, if ordering.
Dismissal: The school needs written permission for any friend, relative, or non-custodial parent to pick up a child. Without permission, children can not be released to any other person, other than their parents. Send in a signed note, if the person picking up is not on your OK to pick-up list.
Aspen for Parents: If you have questions about your portal user account or have problems viewing or accessing your child’s information, please email email@example.com.
