Shiver me timbers, chilly weather doesn’t stop Glebe readers!

Students and families sailed to Glebe Street for Accelerated Reader Night on Thursday, January 22, navigating through the chilly winds of winter to enjoy a treasure trove of good books. Reading nights are an opportunity for students to read with a friend or family member and take Accelerated Reader quizzes. There are still lots of exciting pirate adventures to enjoy, so please plan to join us for  Glebe’s next AR Night  from 6:30 – 7:30 p.m. on February 10. Remember, “Books Arrgh Awesome!”
