Principal’s Corner

Dear Families,

It is an honor and privilege to introduce myself as the new interim principal of Glebe Street Elementary  School and to join  this extraordinary school community. I hope that this note finds you enjoying the holiday season! Over the past month, I have had the opportunity to learn about  the school from leadership, staff, parents, and students. I can assure you that I share in this school community’s commitment to caring for your children each and every day while providing them with wonderful educational  opportunities.

I hope you had the opportunity over Thanksgiving to spend time  with friends and  family! January is going to be another busy month at Glebe! We invite parents and family members  to join our monthly morning  program on Friday, January 17th at 9:20 a.m. Warren Street  will  host the January PTA meeting on January 8th at 6 p.m. and our next  AR Night is January 16th from  6-7  p.m. The Great Kindness Challenge is one week dedicated to creating a culture of kindness in  schools nationwide. Our school is proudly participating in this proactive, positive bullying-prevention initiative. During the week of January 27th through January 31st, students will receive a Great Kindness Challenge checklist with a list of kind acts. KINDNESS MATTERS!

As your Principal, it is important to me that everyone who steps through our doors are excited to be here!  Please know that my door is always open to you. I warmly  welcome  your conversation and positive  input throughout this year, as we keep your children at the focus of our work. Enjoy the Holiday Recess!

Best Regards,

Christina Lais, Interim Principal
