Don’t miss Glenwood School’s annual spring concert Wednesday

Glenwood News


The annual spring concert will be held Wednesday, May 9, at 6:30 p.m. in the gym. Debbie Allaway will direct the hour-long program featuring all of Glenwood School’s music students. Beginning and high school bands will play a number of pieces for the crowd’s enjoyment. Kindergarten through fifth graders will perform excerpts and songs from plays. The K-12 students’ theme is “The Stone Soup”; while third through fifth graders will perform from “The Case of the Missing Part of Speech.”

A special Glenwood tradition is scheduled for Friday, May 11. The annual Mother’s Day Tea will begin at 1 p.m. in the school gym. All mothers and grandmothers are invited to attend the PSE-sponsored event. Mothers and members of the Class of 2012 will be recognized, as is customary. Entertainment will include Kinley Troh singing a solo; a performance by the school band; and a reading by Kay Carr. The PSE will provide punch and cookies for refreshments. Happy Mothers’ Day to all of you moms and grandmas!

Glenwood will host the high school league track meet on May 11. Following the league competition, the final meets of the season will be at regionals and state. Best wishes to the TLG track team as they work hard to qualify for competition at the regional and state levels.

Men from the Pioneer Memorial Community Church will be cooking and serving brunch in honor of Mother’s Day. All ladies are invited to enjoy a delicious (and free) breakfast at 9 a.m. on Saturday, May 12. This is another one of Glenwood’s wonderful traditions.

May 14 will be as busy as May 11 for many Glenwood students. The day will start off with a presentation of the Every 15 Minutes program. The Klickitat County Juvenile Probation Department, working in partnership with local businesses, hospitals, fire departments, police and Sheriffs Departments, funeral homes and high schools, is striving to educate local students about the dangers of drinking and driving.

Their powerful presentation teaches school kids about the real-life risks associated with drunk driving. The Grim Reaper will call a student out of class every 15 minutes to represent how often a drunk-driving death occurs in the United States. There will be additional demonstrations including “beer goggles” that show how drinking impairs driving abilities as students drive a golf cart though a course of cones. The underlying theme for the Every 15 Minute program is to educate and challenge students to make good choices, keep themselves safe and to be responsible.

The Klickitat County Fair Board has chosen May 14 as Swine Pre-Show. Weigh-in hours at the Klickitat County Fairgrounds in Goldendale will be between 4 p.m. and 8 p.m. 4-Hers’ young pigs must weigh between 40 and 100 pounds at pre-show.

The Glenwood PTO is planning a Community Days celebration for June 2 from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m. at the school. A yard sale is one of the day’s activities – and the group is seeking donations of good, clean items to sell. Please contact Cindy Whitefield at 364-3364 or 364-3500 to arrange for drop off or pickup of your donated items. Vendors’ tables will be available for $10 for artists, crafters or retailers to sell their wares. If you have yard sale items of your own that you would like to sell – why not sell them at the Community Days event? There will be a lot of people looking for treasures!
