Newsletter for Galesville and Ettrick families
As the weather begins to cool down, (and remain rather damp!) please know that we go outside as long as it is not actively raining. While we certainly try our best to keep kids out of the wet grass and mud puddles, if you have a little one that you know will test their boundaries, please encourage them to keep extra socks/pants/etc. here at school in case they get wet at recess. I would also encourage that you start to send hats, and probably gloves soon as well for the mornings - it can be pretty chilly out there when it's only 40 degrees at night.
While we love creepy things this time of year, we'd love to keep the germ-monsters away as long as possible!
Spotlight on: our Galesville and Ettrick Custodians!
Few jobs are as important to the daily functioning of the school as the custodian. Here at Galesville and Ettrick Elementary Schools, we are lucky to have three AWESOME folks in that role!
At Ettrick Elementary, Dale Anderson keeps the building and Community Center ship-shape. Serving the district is a family affair for the Andersons, with wife Julie being a long time paraprofessional at Galesville Elementary, and several relatives attending school in the district!
At Galesville Elementary, Tony Hibbard joined our team after a long career at G-E-T Middle School. Tony's passion is interacting with the students, and kids have come to love his smiling face and high fives each day!
The newest member of the Gale-Ettrick team is Wendy Kedrowski. Wendy is the PM custodian at Galesville Elementary. When not "cleaning after dark" Wendy can be found enjoying "Grandma time", as she cares for her granddaughter!
Last week, we got the chance to celebrate our district's custodians. We had a chance to give lots of high fives and thanks to all involved - THANK YOU to our district custodians for all you do to keep us safe and healthy!
