Principal’s Message

Dear Families,

The end of the school year has arrived!  I thank our students, teachers, and staff for their determination and hard work, and I thank you for your dedication and support! It was a successful year for our children in so many ways. Together, we made it so!

Please remember we will have our annual Awards Assembly on June 21st at 9:30 a.m. at Knox Junior High.  If your child is receiving an award, you will be notified in writing or by phone. Our last day of school is June 26th. We have a month of fun planned; play day, a visit from the ice cream truck, AR incentives, transition day for grade 3, etc.

Please review with your child(ren) the importance of adhering to safe dismissal procedures (use of crosswalks, walking bikes, wearing helmets, walking on sidewalks, etc.). As a rule, please remember, families waiting for their child(ren) are, respectfully, asked not to enter the school building, but to wait under the canopy to greet their child(ren). The building is very busy at dismissal time. Throughout the month, please remember if you are changing your child’s transportation (i.e. walking, not riding the bus or picking up) please notify the office by 1 p.m. each day by phone or in writing. This helps us ensure a safe dismissal for all students.  Transportation forms for next year will be going home soon.

We are looking forward to a fresh, new start to the school year in September. We wish our third graders good luck as they move on to Warren Street, and we are excited to welcome the incoming second grade students to Glebe. I hope you have a wonderful, fun, relaxing summer! It is so very important to keep learning throughout the summer- the Johnstown Public Library hosts a fantastic summer reading program for your child(ren) to enjoy!  Thank you for sharing your children with me- they continue to amaze me each and every day!  I look forward to a fabulous fall!

Warm Wishes!

Mrs. Abbey North
Principal, Glebe Street Elementary School
