Glebe Newsletter – Dec. 2019

Principal’s Corner

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 at Glebe! On December 10th at 9:20 we will have our monthly  Morning  Program.  Our book  fair will run December 10th-12th. We hope to see you at  Santa’s  Wonderland  from  6-7:30 p.m.  on December 10th. 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 10th from  6-7:30 p.m. On December 16th we will have a winter sing-a-long in the afternoon. Students are invited to wear holiday colors.

A reminder, school is closed on December 23rd-27th and December 30th-January 3rd. School resumes on Monday, January 6th, with dismissal an hour early that day @ 2:1 0 pm.  I hope that you enjoy the holiday season and  have the opportunity to celebrate with family and friends. Mrs. Christina Lais, who was the assistant principal at the high school, will be  the new principal at Glebe starting  December 2.  Thank you for your support and friendship. I am very grateful to have worked  in such a wonderful school with dedicated teachers, staff, great  students, and families. I wish you good health and continued happiness for 2020!


Mrs. Joyce Caputo
Interim Principal
