The Bulldog's Tale

GNR's Monthly Newsletter

Principal's Message


It's hard to believe that the holiday season is upon us! Our students transition back to school has been great and everyone quickly got into the routine of school. This year, homerooms on each grade level are vying for the Bulldog Trophy. The trophy gets passed to the homeroom, on each grade level, that has the most participation in Spirit Days or other friendly competitions that we have. The homerooms with the trophy now are 3rd grade- Ms. Eggert, 4th grade, Ms. Dlabik and 5th grade, Ms.Brown

In November, we'll be focusing on everything we have to be grateful for!

Former EWRSD Students are Staff Members Now!

Did you know that your child may have a teacher who is a graduate from the EWRSD?! Well, several of our GNR staff members are former EWRSD students so it is possible! I was surprised to learn that at GNR, twelve of our staff members attended schools in EWRSD. We did a little survey to learn more about these special folks. Eight of these staff members still live in the EWRSD. Two of them are now colleagues with former teachers and a majority of them participated in activities while they were students. All of them are rockstars!! Check out the picture below to see who they are.
