Glebe Street Elementary launched a popular Lego Robotics program for students during the 2015-16 school year that happily will be offered again next year. Parents or family volunteers interested in helping out with the 2016-17 program should contact Glebe Principal Abbey North.
Check out the two videos below for a taste of what’s been going on at Glebe Street with Lego Robotics!
Students in Mrs. Spencer’s speech classes celebrated with a Minion Party after earning “Minion Money” throughout the school year. Activities included pizza, ice cream (with sprinkles), Minion crafts, and outside fun! They had a blast!!!
Maya LaCoppola isn’t just an awesome reader, she’s an awesome person too! Maya was the top female Accelerated Reader at Warren Street School and earned herself a bike as a reward for her effort. However, Maya decided to generously donate the bike to another student since she already has a bike. Way to go Maya! Maya’s generosity led to Emily Ferri being drawn as the recipient of the bike. Thank you for passing on your kindness Maya!
Members of the JHS Class of 2016 formed a processional in the halls at Pleasant Avenue on June 16, dressed in their caps and gowns. The soon-to-be graduates were cheered on by the elementary students, many holding congratulatory signs. Senior Walk offers inspiration for the younger students to achieve a long-term goal, while recognizing the accomplishments of the seniors. We look forward to continuing this new tradition far into the future – and one day seeing today’s Pleasant Avenue students return for Senior Walk in their own caps and gowns!
JHS seniors visited Glebe Street Elementary School this morning in caps and gowns, as the younger students cheered on the Class of 2016.
The theme of Glebe’s Morning Program last week was “What did you try your best at this school year?” Students shared what they felt they tried their best at and also shared who they felt believed in them to do their best. Principal Abbey North (in full cap and gown) spoke to students about the importance of goal setting and trying their best. She concluded with telling students she believes each and every one of them will one day be back to Glebe for the Senior Walk. Glebe students then completed an assignment about their educational story (pictured below).
Congrats Class of 2016! Hats off Glebe students! Your hard work paid off and we believe in you!
Pleasant Avenue students enjoyed a special AR Carnival on June 15, earned by achieving a school goal of 2,500 points in the Accelerated Reader program. Students were also recognized individually throughout the year with Minion charms for reaching different point levels in the AR program. Activities at the carnival included a water slide, dry slide, splash zone, pony rides, sno-cones and more. Adding to the fun, 22 sixth graders from Warren Street walked over to lend a hand with the various carnival stations and had a blast hanging out with their little buddies. The event was sponsored by the Johnstown Elementary PTA.
Third graders from Glebe Street visited Warren Street recently as part of Transition Day. Guided tours led by some of Warren’s sixth graders helped the visitors to become acquainted with staff and learn about the building they will be attending in September as fourth graders.
