Boosterthon Fun Run Tomorrow!

Thank you so much for your support throughout our time with Boosterthon over the past two weeks! Students have had an absolute blast learning about health and fitness, and the castle quest character theme: the six virtues of a true hero- focus, self-awareness, respect, trustworthiness, creativity, and being a life-learner. Our main program will conclude tomorrow with the fun run. We'd love to see you come out and cheer on our students!

Kindergarten/1st grade fun run- 8:15 at the middle school stadium

2nd/3rd grade fun run- 9:30 at the middle school stadium

5th grade glow run- 12:15 in the GHES gym

4th grade glow run- 1:15 in the GHES gym

You can park in front of the school, or in the back parking lots, but you will not be able to park in the bus parking lot between the elementary and middle school!

GHES Fishing Club

The GHES Fishing Club had their first meeting on September, 20. It was a great time getting to know some of the basics of fishing with Coach Chris. One of his sponsors even donated reels and rods for each of our Fishing Club students to keep and practice with!

From Math Specialist Mrs. Rice

We would like to recognize Jennifer Thorwall for going above and beyond by volunteering her time here at GHES to work with math groups in The Math Lab. Jennifer is the parent of a 2nd grader here at GHES and is planning to come every Tuesday and Wednesday for an hour to work with 4th and 5th graders.

This week, she worked with them on multi-step problem solving by shopping at The Math Market and next week the groups will begin Project Based Learning (Spooktacular Math Store in October) and STEAM activities.

The students are really excited to work with Miss Jennifer! Thank you, Jennifer, for committing your time to help support the students at GHES!
