GES May Newsletter

May 3-May 31


Tell me and I forget.

Teach me and I remember.

Involve me and I learn.

We want to say THANK YOU to our TEACHERS.

We truly appreciate YOU.

Thank you for riding the waves through this pandemic to teach.

The Count Down Is On....

Three more weeks of school for us to reach the finish line. Our teachers and students have been deep diving in reading (across all subject areas) and in math to try to wrap up all they need to know to prepare for next year. Parents, we need your help more than ever in this three week stretch. Students need to attend class traditional or remote according to your nine week attendance choice and students need to complete all assignments on time.

If your students have missing assignments, it is imperative to get those in as soon as possible. We will not have an extension for late assignments for the fourth nine weeks.
