Where we #makewaves
We are getting off to a wonderful 2020! There are so many exciting things going on at Gulf Shores Elementary. The kids are loving AR, and we are loving seeing them so enthusiastic about reading! We also have our sock hop coming up February 7th. Please remember that you must accompany your child to this. Details are included in the newsletter~
Our first city school system 5K will be February 29th--the Dolphin Dash. We want to encourage everyone to participate- adults and kids. The homeroom with the largest student participation will get an extra recess on March 6.
If you haven't joined our PTO, please consider doing so. We encourage parent involvement and know it takes us all:) We have an amazing group of parents and would love you to be a part of it. Their next meeting is on February 19th at 8:30 in the cafeteria.
Have a wonderful month and please do not hesitate to call if you have any questions or concerns.
