Glebe Holiday Stars 2020

Each year, the Glebe Elementary School community comes together to purchase new holiday gifts for Glebe families in need.  Especially this year, your help will make the holidays happier for our fellow Glebers and their siblings.  Our Glebe Holiday Stars have moved online this year.  If you would to shop for a child, there are four easy steps:

  1. SIGN UP. Join in by signing up here to select the requested gift(s) you would like to purchase for a child. We suggest a $25-40 budget for each gift.
  2. SHOP. Once you’ve signed up, we will email you a printable star with your shopping goals — including important information to help us send your gift to the right family. Let this star remind you who you are shopping for!
  3. WRAP. Wrap your gift and securely attach the printable star — with all the important identifying information — to your gift. Can’t print the star? No worries. Just attach a piece of paper or label with the same important identifying information.
  4. DELIVER. Simply drop your gift at the tent in the parking lot of Restoration Anglican Church during one of our delivery windows.

If you have any questions, please email Ellen Fitzgibbons (email) or Beronica Salas (email). Thank you for your support!


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.

#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.

Community Service Committee

Event Chair: Shelly Stoneman

DETAILS:

Looking for ways to help out this coming school year?  We are looking for some parents to join the Glebe Community Service committee!
 
Our Community Service Committee helps coordinate volunteer opportunities within the Glebe community.  We’ve picked up trash at Bon Air park, coordinated Thanksgiving meals for Glebe families, arranged Holiday Stars to ensure all kids open a present during the holidays, and packed meals for Food for Others. During the COVID-19, we have been working with Glebe Giving to deliver meals and gift cards to our Glebe families in need.
 
Committee members help as they can, and it’s not a big time commitment.
 
If you’d like to join this inspiring committee, please sign up here!
