Picture Day for Virtual Students & How to Order Photos

Picture day for 100% virtual learners is on Monday, April 19 (an asynchronous learning day). Hybrid learners who were not photographed on April 7 or 8 are also welcome to come on April 19. 

If you would like to participate in the April 19th picture day, please sign up here. Time slots will be available between 12:00 noon and 3:00 p.m. Photographs will be taken in the cafeteria. Detailed instructions and COVID protocols are described on the sign up sheet. 

How to order photos
Regardless of when your child is photographed (April 7, 8, or 19), you can order photographs online anytime before 11:59 p.m. on Monday, April 19th at mylifetouch.com with picture day ID EVTQDDGTS. Please note there will not be a makeup day for retakes this year due to the high demand at schools in our area this spring. Photos will be delivered to the school in approximately mid-May. They will be sent home with hybrid learners during their in-person school day. Virtual learners may pick up their photos on a designed Friday pickup or in the office at a later date. We will let you know when they are available. 

If you have additional questions about picture day, please contact Amy LaFalce, Glebe PTA Vice President of Programs and Activities, at glebeactivities@gmail.com


News from the Glebe Library

Books + PJs:  Wednesday, April 14th, we will continue our evening read-aloud event from 7-7:30 pm. Please join us to hear stories from two of our amazing Glebe teachers! A link to join will be sent out the day of the event. 

Spring Book Fair: We will have a Spring Book Fair the week of May 17th – this will be a combination of virtual and pop up. More details to come, but mark your calendars! 

 
If you have any questions, please email Mrs. Wine (kristin.wine@apsva.us) or Mr. Rene (rene.arana@apsva.us). 


Monitor Donations Needed

Have an extra, working monitor at home that you’re not using? Consider donating it to a Glebe teacher! There are eight Glebe teachers who could use a monitor that connects to their laptops or iPads to help manage hybrid and virtual school. If you have an extra, gently used monitor at home, please consider donating it to the school. Monitors should be dropped off at Glebe during open office hours (8-4pm). please note this is a donation, not a loan. All donations are final and teachers will use them as they see fit. Please email Liz Newman at Liznewman@gmail.com with any questions. 


Thank you for Supporting
our Scholastic Book Fair!

We want to send a heartfelt thank you to all the families who supported our first ever Glebe PTA Online Scholastic Book Fair, and to those who supported expanded our Teacher’s library by purchasing from the Classroom Wish Lists.  Though our book fair is now closed, you can still earn 2% for our school by purchasing books from Scholastic going forward. It’s never been easier to support our school! Visit scholastic.com/fair to find Glebe Elementary and get started.


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.
