The Ram Reminder Families

4th Edition 11.3.22

Dear Greene County Elementary Families and Students,

The month of October has been eventful in so many ways! Here are some highlights for our students:

  • Healthy State Walk
  • 2nd Grade field trip to Jester Park
  • Fire Safety week with a visit from the firemen and firetrucks
  • Family Tailgate
  • Fall Festival
  • Beautiful fall weather!

We are continuing to solidify our routines and procedures at GCE to keep students and staff safe. When you stop by the building during the school day, you will notice a new video security door access system. This is operational during school hours, but does not interfere with arrival and dismissal procedures. In addition to our door access system, we will continue to practice our safety drills throughout the remainder of the school year.

We are looking forward to connecting with you at Parent-Teacher conferences next week on Tuesday, November 8 and Thursday, November 10. If you haven't registered for conferences with your child's teacher yet, please use the link below.

Snacks from home

When sending snacks, treats, or drinks to school with your child, we would ask that they are prepackaged with nutrition labels. This will help us ensure the safety of all our students with allergies. If you have questions, don't hesitate to contact our nurse, Lita Bauer. Thanks for your support!

Leaving early/Change of plans:

If your child needs to leave early from school, or has a change of after school dismissal plans, please call the office 515.386.3178. Sometimes teachers don't have time to check Remind or email during the school day, so calling the office will ensure your child gets the message and gets home safely.
