Graders Help Out Furry Friends
Street Elementary School's fifth grade students recently
made a generous donation to the James A. Brennan Humane
Society. After deciding to sponsor a community event
rather than give each other grab bag gifts at Christmas,
the classes chose to raise money for a local animal
shelter. The students raised $150, which was presented
to Mrs. Denise Feldle of the James A. Brennan Humane
Society on January 10. Next to Mrs. Feldle is her
sidekick, a six month-old puppy named Oscar.
Staff are Pretty (Awesome) in Pink!
staff members, knowing
that breast cancer has touched so many of us in one way
or another, chose to dedicate their dress-down-day on
Friday, October 22, to the cause. Donned in clothing
from bright pink to light pink, they helped to raise
awareness and funds while showing support for family,
friends and community members. Our Glebe Street
Panther Staff rocks!
Graders Entertain Special Guest
Leibowitz's second graders had a special guest reader on
March 25 - New York State Assemblyman Marc Butler!
Assemblyman Butler was visiting Glebe in celebration of
Agriculture Literacy Week, and both the students and our
guest had a wonderful time reading and conversing about
the important role of farms in our lives. Thank you

Glebe's Student Council promoted "Twin Day" as a
school spirit event, and dozens of twins,
triplets, quadruplets and more participated. Even
Mr. Carroll & Mr. Frenyea joined the fun!
Street Students Were Seeing Stars
On the night of February
11, right on the heels of the Grammy Awards, Glebe
Street students were seeing stars. Michael Jackson, Katy
Perry, Justin Bieber... they were all there.
sort of. That evening Panthers dressed as their
favorite rock or pop stars for the Starry Night Dance.
It was lots of fun as Glebe students in grades K-6
filled the gymnasium with some great dance moves while a
DJ played today's hottest hits, along with some
well-known classics like the Limbo and the Twist. Thank
you to all who came to boogie, as well as those who
worked hard to coordinate this exciting event!
to Assist People of Japan
devastation following the tragic earthquake and
tsunami in Japan has been horrific, and the Japanese
people are dealing with terrible losses. Meanwhile,
students and staff at Glebe Street School are saying
goodbye to two students, one in kindergarten and the
other in second grade, whose family will be leaving at
the end of March to return to Tokyo, Japan.
As a farewell gesture to Hayato, Shunsuke, and their
family, and as a gesture of support and goodwill to all
the people of Japan, the students, staff, and families
of Glebe are making a donation as a community to Shelter
Box, which is one of the wonderful agencies aiding
Japan. Learn more at
We will be accepting donations starting Friday, March
18, and continuing until Friday, March 25, which is
Shansuke and Hayato’s last day of school at Glebe.
Students may give donations to their classroom teachers,
and interested adults may leave them in the main office.
Any amount that you are able to give will be greatly
appreciated. We think that it is a very worthwhile
cause, and we hope that you agree.
