Congratulations to Leslie Steinbach, 2003 Glenwood School Homecoming Queen, and Jeremy Beeks, 2003 Homecoming King. Both were crowned at the homecoming game on Saturday, Feb. 1. The games were played against Yakama Tribal. The boys team won its game and the girls played a great game, although they didn't win. Students participated in a lot of fun activities all week long in celebration of homecoming. The homecoming dance followed the games on Saturday. The students reported that they had a great time. Due to weather, the bonfire was postponed until Thursday night, Feb. 6. Each sport team put on a skit and the students roasted marshmallows during the bonfire activity.
The food and punch was a great success at the Homecoming Dance again this year. Chris Kuhnhausen said that she could not have done it for the kids without all the help she had. She wanted to thank Walt and Ann Campbell, Diane Carlson, Raylene and Bruce Steinbach, Stacy Baker, Betsy Putnam, Mary Dean, Debbie Woodward, Danette Wheelhouse, Debi Sinor, Don Tomeo, Rick Leiter, Dick Christensen, Jensi Smith, Teri Arnold, Kay Pratt, and the Glenwood Homemakers. If she left anyone out, please forgive her. Again, she really appreciated everyone's help.
A big thank you is extended to the Glenwood Fire Department and all the extra volunteers that assisted them in the sand bagging for flood control at the end of January. Looking at the weather now, it is hard to believe what a few days change can make.
Condolences are extended to the family of Becky Boyes Bazzel, who recently passed away. There is a memorial service for Becky planned on Saturday, Feb. 15, 2003, at the New Life Assembly of God Church in Goldendale.
Chris Miller and Jessica Pooler hosted a baby shower for LeeAnn Burgin at the Glenwood Grange on Sunday, Feb. 9. It was well attended and everyone had a good time. She received a lot of really nice baby gifts in preparation of the upcoming birth.
The 21st Century Grant Program took students on a bowling trip Saturday, Feb. 8. This was a reward trip for the students working hard during the after school homework assistance program.
