Golden Eagle Newsletter
May 5, 2023
In other news, our Lost and Found at GRE is once again overflowing. Parents, please take time to check it next time you are in the school and/or encourage your child to check it. What is left at the end of the school year will be donated.
It's almost time to order your school supply kits!
While this school year is coming to an end, it's time to look forward to next year!!!
We once again are partnering with Teacher Tailored for our School Kidz Supply Kits.
Save the time, headache, and scrambling by purchasing a prepackaged kit (Grades KG-5). Each kit is grade specific and contains exactly what the teachers have requested! And because the items are purchased in bulk, the kits cost less than going to a box store PLUS the school receives a percentage of the sales! They will be sorted and delivered to the classrooms waiting for your student at Sneak Peek.
The sale will begin next week so be on the lookout for an email with the sale link!!!

From the Library
It’s hard to believe that we are ending April. The calendars are filling up. Here are a few important dates to know from the library.
May 8-12th is the last week for checking out library books. ALL books are due back in the library May 19th . Thanks to everyone who has worked hard at returning overdue books lately. It is so helpful as we prepare for end of the year inventory! We are going to be looking at Award winning books for all grades the rest of the year!
As always, thank you for your support of reading and of the library. Any questions or concerns please make sure to reach out.
