5th Grade Virtual Graduation
Dear Parent/Guardian of 5th Grade Student,
We miss our 5th graders so much! It has been great to connect with them virtually, but it is not the same as seeing them in person. Please give your child a big hug, handshake, or fist bump from us at Glenwood. Our thoughts and well-wishes are with you and your family.
While health and safety protocols will not enable an in-person 5th grade graduation this year, your child's teachers and other staff members have been hard at work creating a personal and heartfelt graduation experience. This will come to you in the form of a special graduation video on Friday, created just for our 5th grade students and their families and friends. We cannot wait to share it with you.
In a display of Glenwood unity and pride, we invite ALL to watch the graduation video on Friday, May 29th at 10:00 a.m. The link will be emailed, messaged, and placed on our website five minutes before this time. Although we cannot be together physically, we can still honor and celebrate our graduates collectively.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to reach out to your child's teacher or myself.
Memo from the office
Dear Parents and Guardians,
On Friday, May 1, 2020, Governor Whitmer signed the new Executive Order (E.O. 65 from the Governor's office) expanding provisions for K-12 Learning and Early Childhood Programs. This includes waiving all reproductive health and HIV lessons during the 2019/2020 school year. Since this is already a sensitive subject to teach in person, Kentwood Public Schools elementary classes will be waiving this requirement for the 19-20 school year due to the remote learning option only. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact your school principal. Thanks for understanding during this unique time in our country.
Below is our plan to assist our students/families with meals during the school closure.
Our KPS Child Nutrition Services Department will provide meals to students as follows:
There will be two pick up days each week for our students and families. Breakfast and lunch will be provided in bulk to cover multiple days.
- Tuesdays: 11:00 Am to 2:00 PM (Pickup meals for Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday)
- Fridays: 11:00 AM to 2:00 PM (Pickup meals for Friday, Saturday, Sunday, and Monday)
With the most updated information we have at this time, the breakfast and lunch pickup program will be available starting Tuesday, March 17 and ending Tuesday, March 31. We will update you as soon as possible if anything changes.
