A Message From Dr. Ricks

Parents and Friends,

Happy May! We are finishing up a wonderful Spirit Week, and the students have been so happy and joyful in the midst of several spring celebrations. , our 4th graders celebrated one of our greatest GES traditions, The Medieval Feast. Six long weeks of building castles, learning dances, and writing research reports culminated in a magnificent event in Kilbourne which was transformed into a Medieval dining hall. Many thanks to Mrs. Riley, Mrs. Coley, and Mrs. Knight for planning this wonderful learning experience and to all of the parents who volunteered their time to put the event together. The Aloha pep rally was fantastic as we said goodbye to the exceptional Class of 2016. Congratulations to our rising 6th grade cheerleaders who performed for the first time! Today, we are enjoying this lovely weather and having a blast at Field Day, and the classrooms are full of lovely gifts that your children are making in honor of Mother's Day . How blessed we are. Have a wonderful weekend.

Medieval Feast

Aloha Pep Rally

Our last pep rally of the year was held yesterday at the GES Gym. It was a bittersweet pep rally as we bid a farewell to our 8th Graders. Our 7th Graders filled their spots at the pep rally bench!
