News from External Affairs – Laura LoGerfo

At the end of March, APS held a meeting for school representatives to discuss what kind of choice schools would be attractive options for parents and students.  APS calls these options Instructional Programs Pathways (IPP).  The conversation ranged widely:  Do we want an arts-focused high school?  A STEAM-driven middle school?  Another immersion school?  Themes?  Grade-levels?  Many ideas were floated, many notes were taken, and now it’s your turn if you want to share your thoughts:
  • A draft IPP framework and an online community survey will be available from now until May 13 at www.apsva.us/prek-12-instructional-programs-pathway-ipp/
  • A drop-in open house focused on IPP options will be held from 7:00 – 9:00 p.m. on April 30 at Kenmore Middle School.
  • APS will continue to share information on the IPP via the weekly APS Ambassador updates, School Talk messages, and social media

PTA positions – Next year’s openings

If you have ever thought about how you could make Glebe a better place, this is the perfect opportunity for you to do so.  WE NEED VOLUNTEERS FOR THE PTA Executive Board for the 2019-2020 school year. Our By-Laws state we need to have a President and Treasurer for us to have a PTA. We have volunteers for some positions, but we need more individuals from the community to step up and take the reins for next year.

The following Executive Board positions are open: President, VP Program and Activities, VP Ways and Means, Corresponding Secretary and Recording Secretary.

Laura LoGerfo,VP of External Affairs and Chai Puri, VP of Communications, have volunteered to remain in their positions next year.  Current board members will assist new board members in learning the ins and outs of their new position.

Jessica Burke has volunteered for Treasurer, but it is an election so if you are interested in any position, please let me know ASAP.  On the same note, we also need two volunteers for Enrichment Committee (great for those who work as they do all of their work over email)!

Please contact Kristen at glebepta@gmail.com if you are interested in any position.
