Glebe Directory

Directory ArtworkThe Glebe PTA knows that being able to connect with other Glebe families will be particularly important this year.  Visit our online directory here. Find more information about how our directory works hereYou do not need to be a PTA member to access the directory; you just need to opt-in your children to the directory via ParentVUE. Your log-in information for the directory will be the same email you use to access ParentVUE. (It may not be the same the email you use to access the Glebe PTA website.) The online directory is kept on a separate platform with additional restrictions, so you must log-in to it separately.

If you have questions, please contact glebedirectory@gmail.com


Earn Your Wings

Here are a few tips to help you get and stay connected.

#1 — Join the PTA, or renew your membership. Update your family information in our PTA member records. (This is different than the official school directory.) This gives you full access to the PTA website and supports your school this year

#2 — If you’re a new Gleagle, please sign up to receive our PTA email newsletters. These will be even more important this year. They will contain ZOOM links to meetings, as well as critical information about events and projects. You can review previous newsletters here.

#3 — Sync your smart phone calendar with us. Never miss an event, even a virtual one! More details and events can be found on our calendar page. Click on each event to get more details.
