Amazing Adaptations with ADK Museum

Amazing Adaptations with ADK Museum

The Adirondack Museum at Blue Mountain Lake recently visited Glebe Street Elementary to present Amazing Adaptations to third grade students.

The students learned what makes Adirondack mammals uniquely suited to survive in our forests, with an in-depth look at the specialized body and skull structures of our study specimens. Students put their critical thinking skills to the test with two activities – “Carnivore, Herbivore or Omnivore?” and an adaptation matching game.

It’s your child’s chance to become a heart hero by learning about heart health, spreading the word and raising funds to save other children. Your children will be participating in dance, jump rope or basketball activities during PE classes this week and learning about the heart and how to be heart healthy.

Please look for information to come home with your children. Donations may be made either online or through the collection envelopes. We will be participating in the Kid’s Heart Challenge through February 15th.

Glebe Newsletter & Calendar February 2019

In addition to the content shared below, a PDF version of the February 2019 Glebe Newsletter & Calendar is available to print using the free Adobe Acrobat program.

Principal’s Corner

It is hard to believe it is February already! Quarter two has come to an end and report cards are coming home on Friday (2/1)! As we approach our 100th day of school, this means the school year is half over. I have reminded students to keep working hard. I am proud of their success so far. We have a short month with February vacation the 18th-22nd and a half day on February 15th (dismissal at 11:45 a.m.).

REMEMBER to read, read, and read! Stay tuned to learn about our Pick a Reading Partner (PARP) and Read Across America Day coming soon.  Our next Accelerated Reader Night is February 12th from 6-7 p.m. We hope to see you at our Morning Program on February 7th at 9:20 a.m. The Glebe Leadership Team (GLT) will meet on February 11th at 3:30 to finalize plans for Read Across America Day and Pick a Reading Partner. Feel free to join us! Students will have a unique opportunity this month during the week of February 11th-15th. During PE class, students will be provided golf instruction from golf-pro, Rich Scott, through a program called, “Starting New at Golf,” or SNAG. Thank you JEPTA! We look forward to this amazing opportunity for our students.

Please remember to send your child with winter clothing. Even if your child does not wish to play in the snow, they go outside for twenty-five minutes each day when the temperature is above twenty degrees. Students should have a coat, snow pants, boots, mittens/gloves, and a hat. There is no alternative to outside recess. We hope to see you soon at Glebe!

Sincerely,
Mrs. Abbey North, Principal

Glebe Newsletter & Calendar, January 2019

In addition to the content shared below, a PDF version of the January 2019 Glebe Newsletter & Calendar is available to print using the free Adobe Acrobat program.

Principal’s Corner

Dear Families,

Happy New Year! I hope you had the opportunity over vacation to spend time with friends and family! Most kids work best with a schedule- so it is great that we are back in the swing of things here at Glebe. We have a busy month planned! We invite parents and family members to join our monthly morning program on January 11th at 9:20. Glebe will host the January PTA meeting on January 9th at 6 p.m. The Glebe Leadership Team will meet on January 9th and our next AR Night is January 23rd from 6-7 p.m.

The Great Kindness Challenge is one week dedicated to creating a culture of kindness in schools nationwide. In 2018 Glebe was recognized as a Kindness Certified School. Our school is proudly participating in this proactive, positive-bullying prevention initiative. During the week of January 28th through February 1st, students will receive a Great Kindness Challenge checklist with a list of kind acts. Please encourage your child to complete the checklist and show the world that KINDNESS MATTERS!

My Resolution! Be on time for school! Don’t forget that students can go to their classrooms at 8:45 a.m. and the academic day begins at 9 a.m. Students arriving after 9 a.m. are considered tardy. During morning work, students get settled for the day and attend to school business.  This sets the stage for the day ahead. When students arrive late, they start their day rushed and a few steps behind. They often interrupt instruction for their classmates who are already busy at work. We depend on the partnership of parents and caregivers to ensure that students arrive to school on time every day. If you need support or assistance in your efforts, please call us at 762-3714.  We hope to see you soon at Glebe!

Sincerely,

Mrs. Abbey North
Principal, Glebe Street Elementary School
