Glenwood High School will host its annual "Meet the Titans" event at 6 p.m., Friday, August 22.

This year the event will also feature the GHS Marching Titans.
Freshman Advantage Night was a great success! Following the presentation, Mrs. Barris offered the students a chance to be entered into a drawing for a prize. To enter, students need to complete the worksheet they picked up at the presentation and turn it in to their first hour teacher on the first day of school, Wednesday. If anyone was unable to attend the presentation Thursday night, here is a link to the Power Point and the worksheet. Please take a few minutes and check them out. Worksheets and school maps are also available at GHS on the front desk in Office I. Looking forward to seeing you all Wednesday!
Illinois law states: When approaching a marked school zone on days when school is in operation and children are present, a driver must discontinue wireless/cell-phone use, reduce speed to 20 mph, and stop and yield the right-of-way to any children or adults in the crosswalk area. In addition, drivers are reminded to obey the regulatory or guide signs in our parking lots, as marked. This is especially important for the safety of our children as they are being dropped off before school, or picked up after. Finally, please remember that all traffic must stop while school bus “stop” arms are out and buses are loading and unloading students – including all school facilities, roads, drives, parking lots, etc. By law, drivers are not allowed to pass a stopped school bus when the stop arm is displayed.
The Glenwood Band Boosters is actively looking for sponsors for its First Annual Mouse Races at Glenwood High School to be held on October 10. If you are interested in sponsoring our event and advertising your business, please contact a band member or send in the sponsorship form. We appreciate all of your help and support!
