Vision: Ball-Chatham Success:
Our community makes it possible.
Our staff makes it attainable.
Our students make it happen.
Happy New Year and welcome to a new decade of learning and innovation!  I hope that everyone is having a wonderful and restful winter break with family and friends.  Everyone needs some time to rejuvenate, and hopefully your student has gotten that time and is ready to re-engage and learn everyday.  With a new semester comes the opportunity for a fresh start, so please continue to talk to your child about staying focused on their studies. The goal is to have spring fever skip over Glenwood High School.  Please remind students that it is ok to ask for help and utilize office hours before school if needed.  It is going to be a great spring semester!

With the second semester arriving, it is time to put the focus on our seniors as they prepare to walk across the stage on May 30!  Enjoy every moment with them as they complete their final high school events, sports and activities as well as finish up their final courses all in preparation for college, career, and beyond.  Seniors, it is your time to shine, and we are so excited to see the final stamp that you put on your legacy at Glenwood High School!

As a reminder, Clemson (aka the REAL Tigers) is in the College Football Playoff Championship against LSU so in the words of my wife and youngest son..."Fight Tigers, Fight Tigers, Fight, Fight, Fight!"
