Principal's Message

This is our LAST Golden Eagle Newsletter of the school year! I want to take a moment to thank you all for what was a wonderful school year! On behalf of the staff at GRE, we want to express our appreciation of your partnership and for believing in us to teach and love your children. Each year at the end of the year, we find ourselves excited about the upcoming summer but emotional as we say goodbye to every class. For now, we embrace each day, each memory, and each opportunity to grow!

Thank you to all who were able to make it out to our events this week. We are lucky to have a school community who embraces family like we all do!

MARK YOUR CALENDARS - our Sneak Peek for next school year will be on August 10 and the first day of school is August 15!

Don't forget to send students with their swimsuits under their clothes next Wednesday for our firetruck fun. Also, please remember your towel and to apply sunscreen. We are looking forward to a fun afternoon!

It's time to order your school supply kits!

Volunteer Appreciation Breakfast

We hosted our first Volunteer Appreciation Breakfast this week for the many parents, staff, and community members who have volunteered their time to support us at GRE. We are looking forward to making this an annual event so that we can recognize and thank all of you who go above and beyond each year for the students and staff at GRE!

Sunflower Summer 2023: Free Access to over 100 Kansas Attractions and More!

Greetings GRE Families:

We are very excited to share with you an opportunity for your children and your family to experience over 100 Kansas attractions, educational activities, and fun events at no cost from Friday, May 26th through Sunday, August 13th. “Sunflower Summer” is in its third year and is a program that was developed by the Kansas State Department of Education (KSDE) for families to have fun and exciting educational experiences together in as many of the participating Kansas attractions and locations as possible during the summer.

Please visit frequently to learn more about this year’s expanded programming options and review the “Participating Locations” section of the page. Attractions, activities, and events from across Kansas include zoos, museums, historic landmarks, libraries, day camps, outdoor events, and more.

The updated App for iPhone and Android will be available on Friday, May 26, 2023, to download to your phone or tablet from Apple App Store or Google Play App Store. Anyone who kept the app on their device from last summer does not need to download it again; instead, they will receive an electronic notice to simply update their app to the 2023 version at that time. An adult will need to register their family members and include their county and school district. Then, families may begin planning their summer fun and acquiring free venue tickets as needed using the app and all of its features!

Thank you for your time and consideration of this opportunity!
