Message from the Principal
It was wonderful to see so many of you at Open House! We hope you had an opportunity to visit your child’s classroom and learn a little bit more about Glebe. The number one thing we can do to help children succeed is READ! Research shows that children who read at home with parents do better in school. We will kick off our Accelerated Reader program on October 8th. Our theme for the year is “Legos!” Our first Accelerated Reader Night will be October 10th at 6:00 p.m. in the library. There will be a special prize for the students who attend AR Night!
As you may be aware, we have a monthly morning program at Glebe to celebrate the accomplishments of our students and have some fun too! We will be honoring our students of the month who are continually “soaring for four,” and we will also congratulate our artists and musicians of the month. Parents, family, and friends are always welcome to attend. Our next morning program is October 8th at 9:20 a.m. Morning program always takes place on an “A” day. Other important happenings in October include school pictures on October 1st. We have a JEPTA meeting at 6 p.m. on October 2nd. There is early dismissal @ 2:10 pm for students on October 7, and there is no school for students on October 14 and 15. The Color Run is October 5. If you did not already sign-up, you may still register the day of the run between 9-10 a.m. for $30.
Lastly, we would like to invite you to a special event here at Glebe Street on October 24th – Mystery Door Night. Students will be decorating classroom doors to represent a book they read without using words – come dressed in your Halloween costume (if you wish) and guess the mystery titles! Get your board checked and receive fun Halloween treats! Siblings are welcome! We will have the Bridge Arts Ensemble (musical performances) on October 28. Just a reminder, we DO NOT have a Halloween parade and please DO NOT send your child to school in a costume on 10/31. We will also be hosting the PTA’s Spooktacular Bingo on the 29th – look for a flyer coming home soon! We wish you a fabulous fall and hope to see you soon at Glebe!
