STAFF APPRECIATION LUNCHEON - Thank you to all of the volunteers and contributors who used the magical words "Bibbidi, Bobbodi, Boo!" and made last Friday's Staff Appreciation Luncheon a supercalifragilisticexpialidocious feast, featuring a catered main course, and salads, side dishes, and desserts contributed by our families. Our faculty and staff are like Glenmont's "Ohana" and we appreciate our PTA community's efforts to acknowledge them. Thank you to Liz Halvorsen, Carolyn Daggett, Jen Middendorf, and Meryl Schwalb (for her last hurrah at this event!) for planning and coordinating the whole affair.
PANERA FUNDRAISER - Who likes to have dinner cooked for them? Who doesn't like Panera? Well, Glenmont's 4th grade class will be hosting a fundraising night at Panera on Wednesday, January 16th from 4-8pm. The class will receive 20% of sales when people present the attached flyer, show a copy on their smart phone, or use the code in the flyer to order online for pick up. Save the date, and save your sanity on a busy weeknight!
5th GRADE FAMILIES - We need a baby photo of your 5th grader for the yearbook. Please see the attached flyer for details.
YEARBOOK - If anyone is interested in helping out with the yearbook this year, please contact Michelle Marino at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please help us by providing photos of students at school events, such as the first day of school, Family Fun Day, classroom candids, Halloween Ball, Nature's Classroom, etc. Photos can be uploaded to the community site at https://community.lifetouch.com/ using code TTAZSY. Any questions can be directed to Michelle Marino at email@example.com or Lindsay Knott at Lknott21@gmail.com.
The next Multi-Cultural Committee meeting will be on Wednesday, January 23rd at 6:15pm in the school library. There will be no meeting in December.
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.
LETTERS TO SANTA - Ho, Ho, Ho! If you're looking for a way to mail a special request to the jolly old elf, there is a collection box in the Glenmont main office. Letters must be submitted by this Friday, December 14th. This is sponsored by the Bethlehem Police Department and the Bethlehem Senior Citizen Services Volunteers.
