The PTCC also hosts several informal groups for information and Q&A.

GLOBE Community Exchange - buy/sell/trade items and look for business recommendations
GLOBE Campers - Connect with GLOBE families who plan camping trips
These are closed groups. Request membership from the Admin with your child's name and grade. Acceptance of new families for the new school year begins July 1. Your room parents may also organize other social media sites to keep in touch with other parents in your grade and language track. 
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 Meg Brown for the link. Some parents hire outside providers for transportation. You can find a list of these providers here.
Buy Spirit Wear

Show your school spirit! Stock up on GLOBE t-shirts & sweatshirts for kids and adults by going to GLOBE Spirit Wear Store. Store Openings and Closings will be announced on social media and the weekly newsletter. Other spirit wear items such as car magnets, coffee mugs and tote bags will be available at GLOBE events. 

Label Your Child's Belongings
Jackets get left on the playground and water bottles are left on the lunch table. In a few 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.
