Leadership & Volunteers
We are thankful to have a tremendous core group of Executive Team leaders and volunteers, but we are constantly recruiting new people to share the work of making Glebe a great place to learn. If you are interested in getting involved or have questions, please feel free to contact any of us. We hope to recruit about 30-40 new parents to be more involved this year – please help us!
