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 [email protected] 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!
