Winter Party Sign Up
The Winter Party is Friday, December 16 at 3:00 pm and we are excited to celebrate with OUR community. Please read and review the information below to help us ensure a fun and welcoming experience for all!
If you plan on attending the party, please fill out this form: WINTER PARTY GUEST SIGN UP.
This sign up will be open until Thursday, December 15 at noon.
NOTE: We will ask that you show your ID to be able to get a Visitor's Badge, so please have it with you. I know this is a minor inconvenience but one that gives us more peace of mind in knowing who is here.
Please remember that we ask that younger siblings not attend this event as it is a special time for your Gray Hawk and we are not able to guarantee treats, crafts, and other experiences to additional students that are not in the class. (We can't wait to have your younger child(ren) experience the parties when they become Kinder Hawks in the future) :)
Why are we doing this? The safety and security of OUR GRAY HAWKS is paramount! When we have an all school event during the school day when OUR students are in session, we need to do everything that we can to ensure we know who is in OUR school. By signing up, you are in essence, pre-registering for the event. By doing this, we will have a Visitor's Badge already filled out for you.
What if I don't sign up ahead of time? We want OUR GHES families at school and attending these special events. We would NEVER turn you away. When you arrive you will need to let us know who your child is, show your id, and we will write a Visitor's Badge for you and welcome you in. It just makes the process much more efficient if you do it all ahead of time.
Thank you for your understanding and partnering with us to do all we can to keep OUR GRAY HAWKS safe.

Gray Hawk Neuro-News
Please check out this great article about early brain development in children from 2 - 7 years old.
The video, entitled "The Science of Early Childhood Brain Development" discusses how the first six years of a child’s life—beginning with the mother’s pregnancy — is a time of great promise and rapid development. It’s a time when the child’s brain is most open to the influence of relationships and experiences.
