September is Here!
We have had an AMAZING start to the 2022-2023 school year! Thank you for choosing GME! This school is filled with many amazing educators who have worked tirelessly over the past month preparing for your children! They all have been through trying times the past couple years as Covid swept through our lives; however, they withstood the hard times and are stronger for it! They are truly a gift to your children. I am confident that you and your child are in the right place. You are your child's #1 educator! We are your partners in their education. It takes all of us working together to give your children the best possible outcome!
Initial testing and assessment is underway for all PreK-6th grade students. Assessment results will be shared with you at the 1st parent conference which will be held in October. All assessment data is used to plan for instruction. If you have any questions about assessments and/or testing, please contact your child's teacher.
Superintendent Wright has called all of us to "BE PRESENT!" How? Stay in contact with your child's teacher. Show up for events at the school. Come to a PTO meeting. Volunteer your time. Help support the needs of the classroom. Join the ILT or LSDMC. Help your children with their homework every night. Get your children to school on time each day. Make sure your children get a good night's sleep. Advocate for your children! And, so much more!
Please reach out if you need anything! My email is email@example.com or you can call the main office at 513-363-9600! We are all in this together! We need each other!
Thank you for being a part of our GME community!

Arrival & Dismissal Reminders
Thank you for making our arrival and dismissal run so smoothly! Placing your green or yellow card on your dashboard allows Mr. Lynn to direct traffic with ease. Driving slowly helps keep all of us safe - especially the children! Your patience is appreciated. Remember, if you do not wish to use the carline service, you can let your child's teacher know that you will park at the park, walk down and pick up your child at the front of the building. There is a section for "Walk-Up, Pick-Up" children!
A couple reminders: Please stay in the line until you reach the big light post at the top of our property. This will help keep traffic running in and out without any collisions. Give yourself enough time in the morning to safely make it through the drop-off line! THANK YOU for helping us get it done!
