An enormous thank you to the students, families, teachers and administrators who participated in the Steps for Hope Glencoe Walk-a-Thon for the American Cancer Society. Over 70 walkers and runners participated and we have already raised over $2500 for the American Cancer Society. If you have a donation to help us beat that total please bring it into the Central School office or give it to Mrs. Grant or Mrs. Dwan-Collins. Checks should be made out to The American Cancer Society; cash is fine too. THANK YOU GLENCOE!
