Find a Carpool
Need to organize a ride to/from GLOBE? Check your back-to-school email for links to the carpool connector or contact Susan Mellage for the link.
 
Buy Spirit Wear
Show your school spirit! Stock up on GLOBE t-shirts & sweatshirts for kids and adults, car magnets, tote bags, and more! Order online and pick up in the front office of Lower or Upper Campus. The PTCC hosts several Spirit Wear sales throughout the school year. Look for their table at carpool Pop-Up Sales, Family Summer Picnic, Orientation Day, International Fest, and other school events. 
 
Label Your Child's Belongings
Jackets get left on the playground and water bottles are left on the lunch table. In a few short weeks our Lost and Found is overflowing! Make sure your child's belongings are returned by labeling them with his/her first and last name. Many parents use Mabels Labels to tag their clothing, backpacks, and more. Use this link and Mabels Labels gives a percentage of your order back to GLOBE. 

Remember GLOBE is nut-free! 
Whether you are packing lunches, sending food for teacher appreciation, or bringing a potluck dish, always remember that The GLOBE Academy campus is nut-free.
