Faculty & Staff Appreciation Luncheon

On this Thursday, May 5th we are excited to treat our amazing faculty and staff to a Cinco de Mayo themed luncheon. The meal will be catered by Moe’s, but we need your help!!

A favorite among all faculty & staff is the delicious dessert spread, generously donated by GWL families. Desserts can be store bought or homemade (if homemade we ask that you please include an index card with the name of the dessert and any major allergens).

We are also requesting beverage donations. In the past families have donated cases of water, pitchers of lemonade or iced tea, jugs of coffee, etc. A cooler of ice is also helpful. We raffle off small plants, local gift cards and other fun items for the faculty and staff.

Monetary donations are welcome to help with decorations and raffles. Please complete the attached google form if you are interested in contributing towards this event.

Faculty and Staff Appreciation Luncheon Donation Form

All donations can be dropped off at the main entrance before 9:30am on May 5th. 

We appreciate your support and look forward to a special day for our GWL staff!!

The Glenwood Landing SCA will be hosting a night to remember for our annual Parents' Night Out!  Please join us for a "Night at the Races" at the Muttontown Country Club. This outdoor event on Friday, May 20th at 6:30PM will feature multiple virtual horse races with personalized jockeys and horses. Your ticket to enter will include food, an open bar, live vocalists and musicians as well as a top rated tequila tasting and 5 raffle tickets. Come and place your bets on the winning horse!

All proceeds from the event directly benefit the children by way of SCA’s programs and events. The SCA is an organization of parents, guardians, faculty and staff working together to enrich the school experience of our students through various educational projects, enrichment programs and support of local families in need.
