Glebe’s Original Musical Production

Back for a second year, our original musical production will be based on traditional Catawba stories. Apply to be in the show on the after-school enrichment signup. A lottery system is used to assign students to roles and placement will be made by September 23. Questions, contact ElaineMaag@gmail.com

Magnet for Membership

Designed by Glebe mom, Laura Harrington, we are pleased to offer a new car magnet! This year, when you join the PTA, you will automatically receive the magnet.

President’s Corner

We made it through the first week of school! It was great meeting new parents and seeing old friends at the Welcome Back Coffee!

It takes a village to make our PTA amazing (and it IS amazing!). These incredible parents took time out of their summer to help the school year start off with a bang! Over the summer, Ainsley Stapleton coordinated all of the School Kit supplies and Maureen Mellett made sure they were delivered to each class. Maureen Mellet and Sarah Goodell ordered t-shirts for our kindergartners. Cindy Scarcella, Alexis Johnson, Lauren Barber, Laurel Hanke, Sarah Goodell, Shireen Dodini, Holly Radus, Jill Yasin, Jessica Burke, Grace Ann Bourne, Missy Heinzer, Jaqueline Lotts, Christina Headrick, Jessica Buckwalter, Lisa Gumbs and Jeff Bogdanovich put together the first day packets given to each family on the first day of school.

Enrichment registration starts on Sunday, September 17, at 8 pm. Some classes will fill up very quickly, so be online and ready to hit refresh at 8 pm on the dot. The registration link will be posted here: www.glebepta.org/extras/after-school-enrichment. Payment will go to each vendor (usually by check on the first day of class). Over the weekend class offerings will be posted here: www.glebepta.org/extras/after-school-enrichment/enrichment-catalog/. Thanks to Sarah Smith, Jessica Burke, Beth Feldpush, Lynda Ramirez Blust, Joy Zaremba and Christina Caretti for making our afterschool enrichment inclusive, fun and exciting for our kids!

APS seeks input from Glebe parents in developing a plan for Reed Elementary students in the Westover neighborhood! If you’re willing to support APS with your ideas, guidance, and creativity, they need you on the Building Level Planning Committee (BLPC). If you are interested please contact APS Project Manager, Aji Robinson, at jibola.robinson@apsva.us.

Thanks for supporting the PTA and District Taco by coming to our 1st Glebe dining night. It was a fun night and tacos, burritos and quesadillas were enjoyed by all! As always, call, email or find me at Glebe if you have a question or suggestion!

Update from the Principal

We are off to a great start at Glebe.  As of today, we have 621 eager students filling our classrooms and our hearts.  I wanted to thank all of our families new and old for such a great start to the school year!

Tomorrow, September 13th, at 7 pm is Back to School night. We have two rounds of visits, so if you have 2 or more children you will need to decide the order in which you will visit classrooms. The first round will start at 7 pm, the second at 7:30. Specialists will be around if you would like to check in with them as well. If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to stop by!
