Dear Families,

We were excited to see so many of you at Parent-Teacher Conferences and at Accelerated Reader Night. It is important that you and your child’s teacher communicate so that together, you can help develop their pathway to success.  When we see highly interested and involved parents, we see highly interested and involved students.

As always, we have a busy month planned here at Glebe! On December 7th we will kick off the holiday season with a winter sing-a-long in the afternoon. Students are invited to wear holiday colors. On December 14th at 9:20 we will have our Monthly Morning Program. Our book fair will run December 10th-12th. You will receive a notice as to which day/time your child’s class will attend. We hope to see you at Santa’s Wonderland from 6-7:30 p.m. on December 11th. Come in your pj’s and have milk and cookies as Santa reads “The Polar Express”. After our story, students may have their picture taken with Santa and will have the opportunity to make three crafts that can be used as presents. The cost is $5 per student. There is no cost for parents to attend and siblings are welcome! Please return the RSVP form so we have enough materials for everyone. The book fair will also be open during Santa’s Wonderland on December 11th from 6-7:30 p.m.

A reminder, school is closed on December 24th-28th and December 31st-January 2nd. School resumes on Thursday, January 3rd. I hope that you enjoy the holiday season and have the opportunity to celebrate with family and friends. I am very grateful to work in such a wonderful school with dedicated teachers, staff, great students, and families. I wish you good health and continued happiness for 2019!

Mrs. Abbey North, Glebe Principal
