This is the eighth production the group has organized in Glenwood. Approximately 20 Glenwood students from kindergarten through eighth grade will perform "The Pied Piper" on March 8. A spaghetti dinner will be served from 5 until 6:30 at the school followed by the play at 7 p.m. Prices for the dinner and play are $5 per individual or $20 per family. What a great way to spend your Friday evening in Glenwood! Plan to enjoy a tasty dinner and a play featuring our local students and the Missoula Children's Theatre. (You might want to telephone the school at 364-3438 to make your dinner reservation.)
Twenty-seven Glenwood students from first through eighth grades competed in the 2013 Spelling Bee on Feb. 28. Per traditional spelling bee rules -- the contestants were told the word they were to spell, and then they said the word, spelled the word and finally said the word again. Top spellers from each grade included: first grade, Isabella Bensel; second grade, Willa McLaughlin; third grade, Olivia Jacobsen; fourth grade, Nahaleigh Schuster; fifth grade, Andrew McFall; sixth grade, Kinley Troh; seventh grade, Forrest Putnam; and eighth grade, Colton Troh. Each participant received a certificate and the winner of each grades' contest was awarded a spelling bee trophy as well. Congratulations to each of the contestants!
Honor Society members Becca Hallenbeck, Jonathon Throop, Bethany Putnam, Balyee Couch, Marisela Hernandez and Reyauna Guzman, under the leadership of advisor Bridget McLaughlin, organized the annual spelling bee. Julie Brazil served as the master of ceremonies, while the judges included Tom Eldred, Jennifer Hallenbeck and Bethany Putnam. The Honor Society provided refreshments for the contestants and audience following the spelling bee as well.
