Message from Mr. Romeo

Greetings from GES!

Thank you to our Gainfield families for their support of this year's Veterans Day Celebration. In addition to our video tribute to the United States Armed Forces, each of our classrooms welcomed a veteran for a "virtual visit." A proud day at GES!

As we look ahead to Thanksgiving Recess, a reminder that Region 15 Schools will be closed for three full days (Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday). This is a change from recent years when Wednesday was an early release day. For a peak at the Region 15 School Calendar, click here!

Enjoy the weekend!

Sunflower Tile Mosaic Project Update

Thanks to the GES PTO and Mrs. Saginario for their efforts in completing the Sunflower Tile Mosaic. It's now hanging proudly on the exterior of Gainfield School.

And a special shoutout to our custodial team for their work in getting the piece installed for all to see!

Toys for Tots Drive

Toys for Tots is back at Gainfield School!

Please consider donating an unwrapped toy to the Toys for Tots drive starting Monday, November 15th. Your support will give less fortunate children in our community something to look forward to during the holiday season. The last day to bring in toys is December 1st.

Thank you!


Hello GES families! My name is Erica Aldieri and I am the elementary school social worker for Region 15. I would be grateful to connect families with resources that are available in our community. If you are interested in learning more about resources that include financial assistance, holiday support programs and more, please email me at I look forward to hearing from you!

Spring Author Visits

Although our author visits are not scheduled until the spring, sometimes children get the most of the presentations when they are familiar with the author's books in advance.

With that in mind, feel free to visit the websites of author Ryan San Angelo (kindergarten and first grade) or Phil Bildner (second, third, fourth, and fifth grade) to learn more about this year's authors.

Message from the Gainfield PTO


Thank you, thank you, thank you to all who donated snacks and drinks to stock the staff lounge. We were able to surprise the incredible staff of GES on Monday morning and they were floored by your generosity. This one-minute YouTube video shows the set up!


Next Wednesday is GES Dining Night Out at Chipotle! Show this flyer at checkout from 4-8pm (or mention the GES fundraiser) to have 33% of your order donated back to the PTO. A kid's chicken quesadilla meal with rice, beans and organic milk is $5! See you there on the 17th.


Beef Lasagna... GF Chicken Francaise... Eggplant Rollatini... hungry yet? Villarina's flyers went out this week! These delicious meals feed 2-3 people and come frozen - easy and cozy for the cold winter nights ahead! For more info and to place your order, use this link. Orders must be in by 11/21!


The holiday fair is next Friday, 11/19! Don't forget to send your child in with cash or a check so they can pick out holiday gifts for family and friends. There will be something for everyone and prices range from $0.50 to $15.
