Glen Haven Weekly Scoop: Week of Oct. 31

PTA MEETING TOMORROW! Want to know more about Common Core? Ms. Gibson will be providing insights into the Common Core curriculum.  Free pizza and socializing from 6:30-7. Meeting will start at 7.  Free babysitting will be provided by Alphabest.


Election Day bake sale! We need your help! We can’t have a bake sale without baked goods to sell.  Please sign up to donate something 🙂 Here is the Sign Up Genius for the Election Day Bake Sale!   We ask that bakers wrap each baked good individually in a plastic bag or saran wrap.  You can drop off the morning or the bake sale or coordinate with Gayle ( or 703-489-1131) to drop off at my house.  Not a baker? Neither am I! Donate $ and we can use it to buy premade cookies/candies.  Or you can. (Shh… no one will know)


Mark your calendars! Our first dine-out fundraiser will be on November 15 at Chipolte (at the mall).  Keep your eyes open for a flyer (which you will need to bring with you!)


Our Spirit Wear is in! Keep your eyes open for bags coming home with your children!
