Principal’s Corner

It is hard to believe it is February already! Quarter two has come to an end and report cards are coming home on Friday (2/1)! As we approach our 100th day of school, this means the school year is half over. I have reminded students to keep working hard. I am proud of their success so far. We have a short month with February vacation the 18th-22nd and a half day on February 15th (dismissal at 11:45 a.m.).

REMEMBER to read, read, and read! Stay tuned to learn about our Pick a Reading Partner (PARP) and Read Across America Day coming soon.  Our next Accelerated Reader Night is February 12th from 6-7 p.m. We hope to see you at our Morning Program on February 7th at 9:20 a.m. The Glebe Leadership Team (GLT) will meet on February 11th at 3:30 to finalize plans for Read Across America Day and Pick a Reading Partner. Feel free to join us! Students will have a unique opportunity this month during the week of February 11th-15th. During PE class, students will be provided golf instruction from golf-pro, Rich Scott, through a program called, “Starting New at Golf,” or SNAG. Thank you JEPTA! We look forward to this amazing opportunity for our students.

Please remember to send your child with winter clothing. Even if your child does not wish to play in the snow, they go outside for twenty-five minutes each day when the temperature is above twenty degrees. Students should have a coat, snow pants, boots, mittens/gloves, and a hat. There is no alternative to outside recess. We hope to see you soon at Glebe!
