The school and JPD partnered together to share information from the program Netsmartz. Important messages included how to recognize online risks, how to protect personal information, what to do if they see something inappropriate online, the importance of not meeting face to face with someone they met online, and how to use good “netiquette”/cyber bullying issues.

New Glebe Cafeteria Grand Opening

New Glebe Cafeteria Grand Opening

It’s no trick, but it certainly will be a treat to use Glebe’s new cafeteria tomorrow for breakfast and lunch. For the first time in over 50 years, Glebe students will have a separate dining space from that of the gym. It is 1765 square feet of fun!

Students celebrated the opening of the cafeteria with a whole school dance party. Mrs. North spoke about the great honor, responsibility, and respect that comes with being the first classes to use the cafeteria.

Fall Festival 2017

Fall Festival 2017

JEPTA’s annual Fall Festival was held Friday, October 27th, at Warren Street Elementary School and a great time was had by hundreds of elementary students and their families.

Those attending got to play games, pose for pictures at the fall photo booth, have their face painted, complete holiday crafts, and trick or treat with Johnstown teachers in the safety of the festive school hallways. Donuts and juice were donated by families throughout the district and served as refreshments.

A traditional favorite was getting to see the many pumpkins decorated by each of the elementary classrooms from Pleasant Ave., Glebe Street, and Warren Street schools. The decorated pumpkins were raffled off to attendees at the end of the evening.

Thank you to chair person Christine Lamori and the many JEPTA volunteers that made this free event possible.
