Update for GBE Summer Adventure

June 22, 2018

Important upcoming Dates and Learning at Summer Adventure

This last week our students were able to have fun on our own GBE Obstacle Course Race Course, thanks to Mr. Welch. He emphasized with the students to have goals, learn to fall down and get back up. Growth Mindset Attitude is what we strive for here at GBE!

Students have opportunities this week to enjoy some cool treats as well during the heat, and adventure on a variety of outdoor learning experiences ranging from nature walks for specific ecosystems and food chains to reading scavenger hunts. Learning and Fun is our goal this summer!

Next week our students will be going to the YMCA for an off site opportunity to learn about the YMCA and all the opportunities that are there for their age groups.
We will also have some movement and activities during this trip to encourage health and fitness.

Along with health and fitness, being outdoors in the summer requires some summer safety tips. We will have guests from Randolph County Ambulance district next Tuesday teaching students ways to stay safe this summer.

Our Extended School Year students will be visiting our local Air Evac next week as well. They will get to see the helicopter and learn about what their jobs entail.

Lots of fun and busy times ahead!!
