Volunteers Needed! Fall Movie & Potluck

Our fabulous volunteers are getting ready for our annual Fall Movie and Potluck and we need volunteers. During the event, we eat dinner and our kids watch a movie (Moana) on the Glebe field. Volunteers help set up, bring food to share and clean up afterwards. Please consider volunteering to make this event fun for all. Click here to help: Can’t wait to see you there!

President’s Corner

It was great seeing a bunch of new families at our first PTA meeting of the year! Thanks for coming out and we hope to see you again next month!!

Thank you goes out to our incredible Community Service Committee for organizing our first service event, stream clean up at Bon Air Park! Ms. Williams, our 2nd grade Science Teacher made a guest

appearance and Arlington Park Rangers guided us as we picked up trash. Thanks to Ms. Williams and all of the families who volunteered their time to beautify one of our parks.

As we are settling into using our new website, we will be shutting down the PTA listserv. All communication from us will be through email, weekly newsletters, Facebook and Twitter. Did you know you can sync your smartphone to our PTA and APS calendar? Check it out here:

If you have an idea or suggestion or a question, I’d love to chat. Feel free to drop me an email or talk to me at Glebe!

Update from the Principal

Have you heard about dance party Friday?  Dance Party Friday is nearly every Friday during the school year in the cafeteria during lunch time.  I am the DJ and it is simply a time to play fun dance music and let our friends show off their dance skills.

There are some rules that apply to all students.  The first rule is that you must eat your lunch and clean up your area before you dance.   The second is that if you are out of your seat at dance party it is because you are dancing, not running, chasing or squeezing your bestie like a boa constrictor.  The final rule is to have fun.

Everyone does not dance at dance party, some just listen to the music or sing along, chatting with friends at their tables.  The younger children tend to “free” dance creating their own moves and the older children tend to enjoy the “safety in numbers” group dances such as the Wobble. It’s a great time and you are hereby invited!
