A Message From Dr. Ricks

Parents and Friends,

What a wonderful semester it has been! I loved seeing so many of you at this morning's chapel service, and I am looking forward to visiting with you tomorrow evening at the Christmas program. Many, many thanks to those of you who have helped with class parties, field trips, and organizing teacher appreciation goodies. I always tell people that our greatest strength is the dedicated, amazing force that is the GES parent support system. Your children are simply amazing, and we thank you for entrusting their daily education and well-being to us. This week, the halls have been buzzing with excited students and gracious teachers, and classrooms are dressed in all their holiday glory. 2014 was an excellent year, and 2015 is shaping up to be even better. Have a safe and blessed holiday season!


Dr. Beth J. Ricks

A Special Thanks from Camp Arifjan, Kuwait

A big thanks to Carrie Sellers and a wonderful group of Kindergarten and 4th Grade Students at GES for the largest candy box they have EVER seen. This has really increased morale of Soldiers and put smiles on all of our faces! Thanks for your support and we really appreciate all the thoughtful letters!
