Principals Appreciation Week

January 20-26

Governor Ralph S. Northam has signed a Certificate of Recognition declaring January 20-26, 2019, as Virginia School Principals Appreciation Week.  The role of the principal as the instructional leader of the school is critically important to ensure students are provided the opportunity to learn.  Our principals work diligently to help students and teachers excel, and their leadership and hard work are essential to the success of our schools. Thank you Ms. Borg and Ms. Clarke-Marshall!
To show our appreciation, the Glebe PTA are bringing them breakfast and lunch as well as a gift from the community as well.
How can you help?  Ask your child to write a note to Ms. Borg and/or Ms. Clarke-Marshall and we’ll make sure they get it.  You can email them to glebepta@gmail.com or drop them in the office.

“Power Pack” Fundraiser for Food For Others

TBD – Due to the inclement weather, the community service event will be rescheduled.  Please stay tuned for a new date!

The Glebe Community Service Committee proudly presents the 2nd Annual “Start the New Year Off Helping Others” –  a Fundraiser for Food for Others, an award-winning nonprofit that fights hunger in our community by distributing donated food to NoVA residents and their kids.

We invite you to bring your kids to help pack “Power Packs” (see pic below) for children who may not have enough to eat during the weekends when they are without access to school feeding programs.  A Power Pack is a bag that supplies children with two sets of breakfasts, lunches, dinners, and snacks of non-perishable foods that are easy to make and consume over a weekend.


Glebe Spring Social & Auction

The Glebe Spring Social & Auction is seeking volunteers to commit only a few hours of time starting in January 2019.  We are seeking people to help on February 10, 2019 at craft day, to work with the business donations committee, or to make calls during the February 18, 2019 business donations phone bank.  There’s opportunity to commit as little as one hour of time, but the benefit to the Social & Auction will be much greater.  The links to sign up are below.  Thank you in advance!

New Community Service Event

Start the Year Off Helping Others

The Glebe Community Service Committee proudly presents “Start the New Year Off Helping Others” –  a Fundraiser for Food for Others, an award-winning nonprofit organization that fights hunger in our community by distributing donated food to NoVA residents and their kids.

Why: There are children in our community who do not have enough to eat during the weekends, when they are without access to school feeding programs.  Your family can help by providing “Power Packs.”

What: A Power Pack is a bag that supplies children with two sets of breakfasts, lunches, dinners, and snacks of pre-selected non-perishable foods that are easy to make and consume over a weekend.

How: Three ways to Help – Consider any One or All Three!

  1. Go to our Amazon Wish List and order from the food items listed there as soon as possible, and no later than January 3rd.  (We cannot accept individual donations of food for this fundraiser due to the need to have an exact balanced count of all of the items mentioned. PLEASE HAVE FOOD SHIPPED TO ADDRESS LISTED ON WISH LIST.  If already sent to your own home, please label with your name and drop off to Shelly Stoneman’s home at 4634 20th Road North. We need to have a full accounting of all food collected before we assemble the packs of food. Thanks!)
  2. And/or you can donate money to the Crowdrise page created to support this event. Every dollar makes a difference!
  3. And/or your family can help assemble the Power Packs with other Glebers on Sunday, January 7, from 3 to 5 pm in the Glebe Elementary School Multipurpose Room.

When: Now through Sunday, January 7th, when Power Packs are assembled (and we need lots of hands on to help out that day!).

Who: Glebe students and their families, as well as friends in the community, are welcome to donate and/or assemble Power Packs on January 7, 2018. (Kids 3 and up can also provide help with parental supervision.)

Thank You,
The Community Service Committee
Julie Madison, Tara Blankinship, Frances MacLaughlin, Grace Ann Bourne, Robbin Boyajy, Beth Jackson & Shelly Stoneman

If you have any questions, please contact Shelly Stoneman (email).
