Principal's Message

We are looking forward to seeing some of you at our Valentine's Day parties Tuesday at 3:00 and partnering with all of you either Wednesday or Thursday at our Parent/Teacher Conferences!

The following message is from our PTO regarding the meal they provide for teachers on Wednesday evening of P/T conferences:

PTO always provides the staff at GRE a meal the Wednesday evening of Parent/Teacher Conferences as a thank you for all they do for us! We are going to cater in the meats, shells and salsa for a taco bar. We are asking for store bought items like shredded cheese, shredded lettuce and chopped tomato, chips, desserts, drinks and paper goods! Please click the link below to sign up to help feed the staff.

It has certainly been a fun Chiefs spirit week this week! As you heard from district,

Just in case...

As you are most likely aware, the Kansas City Chiefs will play in the Super Bowl on Sunday, February 12th. You may also remember that in 2015 and 2020, we canceled school for the Royals and Chiefs Championship Parades. This was necessary due to the high number of staff and student absences, along with the availability of substitutes.

If the Chiefs win the Super Bowl on Sunday, we would plan to cancel classes on the day of the parade, which is currently scheduled as a full day for students in grades Pre-K-12 on Wednesday, February 15th. February 15th is also our currently scheduled date for evening Parent/Teacher Conferences. It is our plan that teachers would be in touch with any parents scheduled for Wednesday evening conferences to reschedule to an alternate date.

Kansas City identified Thursday, February 16th, as a rain date for the celebration/parade. There are already no classes scheduled for students on Thursday, February 16th, due to Parent/Teacher Conferences.

Official notice of any school cancellation will be sent on Monday, February 13th (for Wednesday, February 15th), along with any changes in our schedule for Parent/Teacher Conferences.Thank you for your flexibility as we make plans to allow students and staff the opportunity to celebrate another Kansas City Championship!

Don't forget - GRE StuCo is collecting POP-TABS!

Here is a message from Alan Lubert, Community Relations Manager at Ronald McDonald House:

A house is made of walls and beams; a home is built with love and dreams. Ronald McDonald House is reinforced by gazillions of pop-tabs! On behalf of RMH families, we are grateful for your stick-to-it-tive-ness collecting pop-tabs. Pop-tabs teach an important lesson: even little things make a big difference. In 2022, RMHC Kansas City recycled 18,400 lbs. of tabs, earning $10,600. RMH staff members appreciate your leadership, "pulling" for The House That Love Built.

Thanks to dedicated pop-tab collectors, RMH parents can focus on what's important -- reading a story, sharing a giggle, or drying tears -- care that makes a world of difference in a child's recovery. Good things happen when people work together. By supporting our families you give the most vital gift of all: hope.
