Glebe Summer Library Hours & Summer Reading
Glebe Summer Reading – Check out the Glebe library website for details on our summer reading guide – including summer reading activity ideas, a reading tracker, and book club inspiration. The library website also includes summer reading book lists, links to summer reading programs in the area and other summer reading resources.
The Glebe Library will be open on Wednesdays in July from 2:30-3:30 pm for book checkout! Please enter through the Reading Garden door on the field side of the building. Face masks must be worn and social distancing guidelines followed while in the library.
Don’t forget to sign up for the Arlington Public Library summer reading program! This year’s program theme is “Food for Thought”. There are activities throughout the summer, as well as prizes. Try a Super Reader Bonus Challenge, or complete the Westover Scavenger Hunt!
Looking to get involved over the summer or for the start of the next school year? We need help with the Enrichment Committee, web designers and web masters, and with the Garden Committee. Email Glebepta@gmail.com, if you are interested in more information.
The 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 here. You 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 email@example.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.
