Glenn C. Moore Elementary School Update: We would like to have one more pick-up date at the elementary school. We need to pass out our class pictures, yearbooks, PK mats and blankets, prizes from the fundraiser, and also have a library book drop off. The class pictures have still not come in yet. Mrs. Mary Hewitt has emailed, and they have told us they are short-staffed and are looking for our order. I am sure they are. I know photography was not an essential job. I would rather wait and give out everything at one time due to the conditions. If it is an emergency that you need the yearbook, PK mat/blanket, prizes from the fundraiser, or need to turn the library books in due to moving, I will be glad to meet with you! My cell phone number is 918-397-5734. I am sorry for all the inconvenience this year has caused. We will announce the next pick-up date. Enrollment: Enrollment will be online this year. It is not available yet. We will let you know when it is. We will be available to help you complete the enrollment, if you have questions. We will also have a way for those that do not have the internet to enroll. Again, feel free to call me if you have any needs. I also receive phone messages if you leave a message at the school. Have a great summer! I have missed your kids! Thank you, Sherry Campbell school: 918-273-0771 cell phone: 918-397-5734 email: firstname.lastname@example.org
