GES Weekly

May 19, 2023

From Superintendent Haas:
There are some end of the year calendar adjustments we wanted to share.

We will have NO SCHOOL on Monday, June 19 in honor of Juneteenth.

ALL students' last day of school will be an EARLY RELEASE DAY on Tuesday, June 20th, 2023 11:30am.

Our Incoming Kindergarteners

We welcomed our incoming Kindergarteners to GES on Tuesday night. Staff and students enjoyed games, pizza, popsicles and tons of balloons! We are lucky to have such a fun and energetic group of children joining our school next year.

Welcome, Panthers!

Volunteer Opportunties

As our busy year comes to a close, we want to remind families that we have opportunities available to have you into the building. Please reach out to your child's teacher or Sarah Noble if you are looking to volunteer.

Please note that all volunteers must complete proper background checks.

School Property Access

Now that Spring has arrived, I would like to remind the community that school grounds are not open to the public during school hours, during the school year - Monday through Friday from 7:45am-3:15pm. If you wish to access the property behind our school, we ask that you please use an alternative trail and not the trail on school grounds. We have asked our students not to engage with pets that they may see during school hours while outside.

Mark your calendars!
