LIP SYNC - Glenmont's Got Talent...thank you to Cara Qualia and Andrew and Bethenny Kourt for chairing another mesmerizing Glenmont Lip Sync Show! And thank you to Ms. Seymour, Ms. Bowen, and Ms. Ward for emceeing and keeping the audience on its toes with our student-submitted punny jokes and riddles. The onstage talent was on-point, and the Glenmont faculty and staff also set the stage aglow with their smooth moves. Maybe some of these acts will be giving Jimmy Fallon a lip sync battle run for the money someday!

Got scissors? If you've been clipping Box Tops all summer, you can bring them in and put them into the Box Tops box--in the main doorway (or send them to school in your kid's folder). What are Box Tops, you say?
Box Tops can really help our school
They are a small but useful tool
They can be found here and there
In Glenmont and most anywhere
From soup cans to cereal boxes
But probably not on bagels and loxes
So please cut them out and send them in
For each 'Top sent, a dime we win!
See the Box Tops sheet in here. If you fill the sheet with Box Tops, send it to school (put in an envelope marked "Box Tops"). A filled sheet = $5.00 for the PTA!
Next PTA Meeting: Tuesday, October 9th @ 7 p.m.
