Help Needed for Outdoor Spaces
Gwin Oaks Parents, we need your help! Our school is very lucky to have beautiful outdoor spaces where our children can learn and play. Many of you may have seen our courtyards, where we invite parents to join their kids for lunch. We also use the courtyards for one-on-one reading time and other learning opportunities. Beyond our courtyards, we have an outdoor classroom. The outdoor classroom has a long history of being a great place for lessons on science and the outdoors. Sadly, our teachers haven't used the outdoor classroom in a few years because it hasn't been maintained.
The county does not maintain these special green spaces at Gwin Oaks, so it falls to us, the Gwin Oaks community of parents, to pitch in and keep these spaces usable and attractive.
Please join us for a work day on Saturday, November 12th, from 8:00 am until 12:00 pm. Please bring your work gloves, spades, weed eaters and hedge trimmers. We know Saturdays are busy days, so we welcome you to drop in anytime between 8:00 and 12:00.
The class with the largest parent turn-out will earn a pizza party!
Congratulations to our artists who will represent Gwin Oaks ES at the county level on November 13th at Parkview HS.

HELP EARN CASH FOR YOUR SCHOOL WITH BOX TOPS FOR EDUCATION & CAMPBELL’S SOUP LABELS
Once again we are collecting Box Tops and Campbell’s Soup Labels to earn money for our Media Center which will be used to purchase new equipment. We will randomly pick a winner each month from all of the Box Tops and Soup Labels that are turned in for the month. To be included in the monthly drawings, please make sure to turn in any Box Tops or Soup Labels by the last Friday of each month. The winner will be announced in the following week’s newsletter.
In May 2017, we will have 1 grand prize winner for the student who has turned in the most Box Tops and Soup Labels (the Box Tops and Soup Labels are counted together) for this school year. We will have a winner for each grade that has turned in the most for their grade and also, the class that turns in the most Box Tops and Soup Labels for the school year will win a prize for their teacher!
Important: Please send your labels or Box Tops in a plastic zip lock bag with your child’s name, teacher’s name and grade neatly printed on a piece of paper inside the bag. This is really important so that I can make sure your child gets credit for their submitted labels and Box Tops. Please trim along the dotted lines on the Box Top or Soup Labels as it helps us get them processed much faster. Unfortunately, we cannot accept Box Tops that have expired or are missing the expiration date.
If you have any questions, please contact Sharon Kosmala, 404-661-8907 or email at email@example.com.
New Date for Product Pick Up
Product pick up for the CookieMan Fundraiser will be November 9. Parents, please pick up orders between 3:15 PM - 6:30 in the GYM.
