NEWS FROM PRINCIPAL ROY
Dear Greenfield Families and Friends,
Friday's Field Day, aka Neon Ninja Day was a huge success despite the showers and cloudy skies. Thank you to all the parent volunteers who helped make it happen! We truly appreciate your help and were thrilled to have you back in school volunteering with us again! The students and teachers had a blast!
4th Grade Families~please mark your calendars for Thursday, June 16th at 6:00pm! The annual 4th grade play will start at 6:00pm sharp, followed by a celebration ceremony. We can't wait to wow you with a fantastic performance of Fairy Tale Misfits!
As many of you know, our beloved 2nd grade teacher Mrs. Sandy Aborn is retiring at the end of this year. While we will miss her so much, we are happy for her as she begins the next great adventure. We are thrilled to announce that Mrs. Emma Goodspeed will be moving to 2nd grade next year. She is excited for this new adventure and is looking forward to working with our energetic 2nd graders! I'm also happy to announce that Mrs. Molly Cook will be teaching 4th grade next year. Mrs. Cook has been a paraprofessional for many years and has been with us here at GES for the last two years. She recently completed her education coursework and student teaching and is ready to take on her own classroom. I am so happy to have Molly join our teaching staff-she already knows our school and our students so well, it was a natural fit for all of us!
Please be sure to scroll down to the list of upcoming events and mark your calendars accordingly! You don't want to miss all the fun!

CONVAL DISTRICT NEWS
GES has a facebook page! You can find the link here:
The ConVal School District has news blog to serve as a hub for the latest updates, information and news about the district’s schools, students, faculty, events and accomplishments.
The blog, ConValNews.com is integrated into the schools and District’s Facebook and Twitter accounts and will automatically broadcast news blog content onto these platforms, connecting directly with the district community.
With a clean, user-friendly and mobile responsive layout, the news blog allows for easy navigation throughout. It can be accessed on computers, cell phones and tablets. Community members can subscribe and be notified by email when new posts are published.
Parents/guardians, students, staff, and community members should still utilize the district’s main website, Convalsd.net, to access the District-wide calendar of events, contact information, school committee meeting notices and minutes, important documents and notices and to view general information about the district and its schools.
Spring Weather, Tick Season, and Outdoor Play:
With warmer days upon us, we will be spending more and more time outside. We highly recommend putting sunscreen and bug spray on your child before they come to school for an added layer of protection. Sending a sweatshirt or light jacket is also a good idea-we all know the weather can change on a dime here in NH!
It is important that you check and update your children's after school pick up plans in Pick Up Patrol each day, especially if they have plans that may change on a daily basis. We will follow the plans that are entered in Pick Up Patrol. It's your responsibility to make sure the plans are correct. Thank you for your help!
In case you missed the news, morning snack/breakfast and lunch are free for all ConVal students this year, however if your child gets only milk at either meal there is a charge of $0.50. Please be sure to add money to your child's lunch account to cover the cost of milk if needed.
You can find the latest elementary menus here:
The Grey Wolf Gazette is now available on our website under the "What's Happening" button. You will be able to find previous editions by clicking on the View All News button. No more scrolling through your email to find the newsletter.
Have a wonderful weekend!
