If possible, children should wear a shirt that helps to identify their team color.  Water events are also included in field day (passing a wet sponge overhead, things like that), so we suggest sending your children with a bathing suit on (boys) or under their clothes (girls).

Remember to send your child in with

  • bathing suit
  • hat

  • a filled water bottle
  • towel
  • sneakers
  • healthy snack

PTA Meeting

June 6th 7pm, Glebe Library

We will be having our last business meeting of the year on June 6th. We will have a copy of our current budget available as we do at every business meeting. Please come learn details of our budget and where your money goes to support our school and community.

On the agenda for the June meeting:

  • voting on the 2018-2019 budget: We will be working on the budget for next year in the coming weeks.  If you have ideas for projects / committees/ purchases / events that support PTA missions please, please, please contact me.  We are always open to new ideas and if we have volunteers to spearhead them we can usually figure out funding.

 

  • voting in several positions on the executive board: We are looking for someone to volunteer for Vice President External Affairs. We currently have parents who have volunteered to become Treasurer, Vice President Ways and Means and Recording Secretary, but this is an election so if you have any interest in serving on the board contact me  ([email protected]) and I can give you more information. We have more information about each Executive Board position and their respective responsibilities as well as a list of many of our other volunteer positions our website (www.glebepta.org/about-us).

Please plan to join us, as there will be a lot of decision making taking place and we want to hear your opinions!!!  As always, there will be babysitting for school aged children and Spanish translation.
