Rhyme & Cheese Night
Tuesday, April 30 – 7-8pm – Glebe Multipurpose Room
Rhyme & Cheese celebrates Glebe students’ own writing in the hopes that it will encourage a love and excitement for the craft by all who participate and come to listen. The student will share their own original writing on April 30th at 7 pm with the Glebe community in a relaxed atmosphere and hopefully learn to love (or at least get comfortable) speaking in front of others. The Listeners are just as critical as The Writers, so encourage your student to come support their Glebe-mates.
Wednesday, May 1 – 7 pm – Glebe Library
Come meet our new school board representative, Nancy Van Doren! She will introduce herself, provide an update to the school board budget, and answer any questions you may have. If you have an agenda item you’d like to discuss at an upcoming meeting, please send it to [email protected] ASAP.
We will have child care for all potty trained children during the meeting. Spanish translation will be provided.

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 [email protected] if you are interested in any position.
