Mr. Wood will be doing an adult derby class on Thursday nights from 5 to 7 p.m. on March 6 and March 13. The cost is $5 for materials. No sign up is necessary, just come to the wood shop at the school on those dates. The 21st Century program would like to thank all of the parent volunteers who have helped with this program and a special thank you to Mr. Wood for all of his hard work and expertise. It has been very successful and fun.
The 21st Century would also like to thank all the community members who rode the Rooters Bus to Sunnyside to support our high school boys basketball team during the district playoff games. The Glenwood School is really proud of the success of the team and the coaching staff for the great season.
