Welcome to a New Week

Hi GIS Families!


It's hard to believe we're almost at the end of January! Classrooms are in full swing, kids have enjoyed the recent snowfall, and we're in for a busy few weeks before February break. This week, our PTA will host a concession stand at our next basketball home game on 1/24, as well as on 1/26 and 1/30. Be sure to stop by! All proceeds benefit our student activity fund. In other exciting news, Mr. Matt has installed two TVs in our front lobby. They will have a running slideshow and important announcements of them (which can also be found in the Wildcat Week Ahead).


Other essential pieces of information:


  • Kindergarten registration is open.
  • Please make sure band students bring their instruments in on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays, and Ms. Gibbons will let you know if there are additional days your child needs to have their instrument.
  • Warm weather gear is a must. Our fabulous PTA is fundraising for additional gear, but please send your child to school with what they need.


As always, please reach out with questions; my door and inbox are always open!


Mrs. H

February Break Afterschool Program

CARES will be closed for the February break. We're sorry for the inconvenience.

Summer Camp Information

GISU is working with all schools in the supervisory union to build a wonderfully robust summer camp experience for all students. CARES camp, housed at Grand Isle School, is undergoing some exciting changes that will allow us to increase the capacity of students we can take. There is a lot of information coming out in the next few weeks. Please keep your eye on your email for information on signups and camp offerings!

Ski and Ride Last Day 2/16

  • The bus will be leaving around 7:45 *This is 30 minutes earlier than usual*
  • Please make sure your child has the warm-weather gear needed for the mountain.
  • We provide school lunches to all students who are signed up. Some families elect to pack a lunch or extra snacks, and that's great! Our prior ski and ride days had no lunch issues; however, there was a lunch issue last time with students bringing money from home to buy lunch. It caused students who did not have money to ask others to buy things for them. If possible, please do not send your child to the mountain with money for food.

Snack Donations

Thank you to all of the families who recently stocked up our classrooms!

Lost and Found

We have a large collection of sweatshirts, pants, shirts, jackets, water bottles, and some lunch boxes. If you're coming into school for pickup or drop-off, please swing by and see if anything belongs to your kiddo!
