Dear Greene County Elementary Families and Students,

Happy New Year, GCE! We are excited to have everyone back at school and ready to learn! A HUGE thank you to everyone that has been reading! It has been fun watching all the minutes accumulate for our school. Greene County Elementary is very close to achieving our goal. Continue to return your Bingo sheets, and let your teacher know if you need another one.

Thank you for sharing your children with us everyday. Please don't hesitate to reach out to your child's teacher or me if there is anything we can do for your child or family. With No School on Monday, January 16, we hope everyone has a wonderful 3 day weekend.

Winter Clothing & Outdoor Play

Here are a few reminders for our winter outdoor play:
  • Please label your child's winter clothing with their name. This helps us ensure we get any lost items back to them (and you!)
  • Snow pants and boots must be worn to play in the snow.
  • If students do not wear boots or snow pants, they will be able to play on concrete surfaces only.

We have a few donations of winter clothing. If you need winter clothing for your child, please reach out to our nurse, Lita Bauer 515-386-3178.

Safety Drill Communication

Greene County Schools wants to keep you up to date on our building-wide safety drills. I will be sending an email and text message to all parents/guardians 1 day prior to a safety drill we will be having at school. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to reach out to us. Thanks!

Snacks From Home

When sending snacks, treats, or drinks to school with your child, we would ask that they are prepackaged with nutrition labels. This will help us ensure the safety of all our students with allergies. If you have questions, don't hesitate to contact our nurse, Lita Bauer. Thanks for your support!

Leaving early/Change of plans:

If your child needs to leave early from school, or has a change of after school dismissal plans, please call the office 515.386.3178. Sometimes teachers don't have time to check Remind or email during the school day, so calling the office will ensure your child gets the message and gets home safely.
