Reminder: Make Sure Your Emergency Addresses are Correct on Emergency Sheets

As you know, we are in the months of unpredictable weather patterns. We just want to remind everyone to have the correct place where your child goes in case of an early dismissal. Be aware, that all notes are voided if this is called and we follow the emergency addresses on your emergency sheet. This is for the safety of all our students. When this is called, the office goes into emergency procedures as we only have so long to get our children on the correct buses and dismissal. We will not accept ANY changes over the phone for the safety of our children. Although these days are rare, we have had them, so please be alert to weather patterns. Thank you for your understanding and cooperation for the safety of all!

February Give Back

The third grade will be hosting a fundraiser to support the Kiwanis Backpack Program, as a way to teach our children and school community to give back.


Some of you may be familiar with this program already. If you are not,…..Gouverneur Elementary has a team of volunteers who donate their time weekly to pack bags of food or donate non-perishable foods for children in our school. “Backpacks” are delivered every week to students in need.

To give back to our community, we decided to help the Kiwanis Program. For the entire month of February we are asking students to bring in coins to fill our backpacks!

Coins can be found all over, from under couches, stuffed in cushions, buried deep in pockets, or even frozen on the ground!

All monies collected will be given to the Kiwanis Program to help purchase non-perishable food for our children.

Thank you for supporting our children’s growth in learning!!
