Message from Mr. Romeo

Greetings from GES!

As this is the last school newsletter before Thanksgiving, I wanted to extend my best wishes to each of our Gainfield families for a wonderful holiday.

Enjoy the weekend!

Toys for Tots Drive

Toys for Tots is back at Gainfield School!

Please consider donating an unwrapped toy to the Toys for Tots drive starting Monday, November 15th. Your support will give less fortunate children in our community something to look forward to during the holiday season. The last day to bring in toys is December 1st.

Thank you!

Thank you to all that came out to Chipotle night on Wednesday. Between your online orders and your in-person orders, Chipotle is giving back $488 to the PTO so we can continue to support GES staff and students! WOW!!

The holiday fair was a bit hit with staff and students! It was so wonderful to have that tradition back after a year off. Thanks to all of the volunteers and to the families that sent in $ for their children to shop. We hope everyone enjoys their gifts!
