March 2019

Dear Families,

Happy March! We have a busy  March planned at Glebe! We will have an amazing time celebrating Read Across America Day on March 1st. Students will celebrate literacy with an assembly, guest readers, stations, snack, and special Seuss prizes. Students are encouraged to dress “Seuss” and wear sneakers for stations on March 1st. Our assembly will be at 9:10 a.m. As always, families are welcome to attend. At our assembly, not only will we celebrate Seuss, but we will kick off PARP, or Pick a Reading Partner. PARP will run March 4th through 22nd. Students will receive a PARP board to track their completion of reading activities this month. They can earn prizes/incentives based on how many activities they complete. You will be receiving a PARP packet soon! Students will participate in some activities at school; listen to a guest reader, buddy read, and DEAR (Drop Everything and Read). There are some activities for home and some evening events as well. Join us for Story and a Slice on March 11th (sign up is required!), or AR Night on March 21st. Students will also have the opportunity to participate in the book swap on March 14th (paperwork coming). PARP boards are due on 3/22.  We are looking forward to a fun month celebrating reading!

Other events and meetings happening this month include the Public Budget Forum on March 4th at 6:45 p.m. at the high school. It is important you stay informed regarding the district’s budget. On March 6th at 3:30 the Glebe Leadership Team will meet followed by the Johnstown Elementary PTA meeting at 6 p.m.  On March 7th, there is a Board of Education meeting at 6:30 p.m. We hope to see you at our Morning Program on March 12th at 9:20. On March 13th there is no school, as it is a Conference Day. We hope you have a happy and healthy spring! We hope to see you soon at Glebe!

Mrs. Abbey North, Principal
