Artworld II Summer Camp
June 25th – 29th 9 am – 12 pm, Glebe Elementary
Announcement from Mr. Gray:
Dear Glebe Staff, Parents, Students and Community –
It is with a heavy heart that I inform you that I will be resigning from my position as Health and Physical Education Teacher at Glebe Elementary School. My last day of teaching for Arlington Public Schools will be June 20, 2018.
After a long period of consideration, my family and I have decided that it would be in our best interest to relocate to an area that would better suit our needs. My wife (who is also an elementary school teacher) and I have both acquired teaching positions with Henrico County Public Schools. We will be moving to the Richmond area over the summer with Neo and Mace in tow.
I truly enjoyed my tenure at Glebe Elementary School. Teaching these students has given me great pleasure over the years and it has been amazing watching them grow and develop. The Glebe parents and community have been so warm, friendly and encouraging, and the administration has always been supportive in my every endeavor.
I am very sad to be leaving, there is no school like Glebe Elementary. I have no doubt that Mr. Herninko and the rest of the wonderful Glebe staff will do an excellent job in educating the students at Glebe Elementary and creating lifelong learners. Thank you so much for these last 10 years. It has been a privilege working alongside you, teaching your children, and high-fiving you at the door.
- Rising Kindergarten Tours: Thank you to Jamie Borg, Ingrid Clarke-Marshall, and the entire Kindergarten Team of Teachers and Assistants for making our rising kindergarteners feel welcome into our community. To all the families who came to visit, we look forward to having you join us in the fall!
- 5th Grade Yearbook Team: A very special thank you to Jen Thompson and Holly Radus for leading the year-long effort for this year’s yearbook! Additionally, this yearbook would not be the success it is without the support of so many parents who helped along the way: Jennifer Shoji, Mary Ellen Flannery, Christin Bushardt, Debby Cook, Linda Feehan, and Kim Trucano.
- Have Box Tops? You can turn these in to the collection box in the Front Lobby!
- Please consider bringing in food for our FOOD NOURISHMENT initiative. Cart is in the Front Lobby!
- We will be collecting Toiletries as we expand our Food Nourishment initiative at Glebe. Please consider bringing in NEW shampoo, conditioner, hair products, toothbrushes, toothpaste, deodorant, razors (men and women), combs & brushes, feminine products, laundry detergent, body wash, etc. to assist those in need.
- Have used crayons? Our broken, used crayons are being collected and re-purposed. Just drop them off in the main office collection bin or in your child’s classroom!
