From Mrs. Sholl
Each February as we celebrate Valentine’s Day we are all encouraged to think about those that we love. At GES, we LOVE our students! We are looking forward to spending some time together at our upcoming Family Fun Dance this Friday, February 2nd in the school gym. Pre-sale tickets are available now, so get yours today! It should be a fun evening!
February is Black History Month. GES celebrates diversity and learns about different cultures throughout the year, but this month we will be highlighting famous black Americans and celebrate their important role in our history.
Lunch charges are becoming an issue. If you are struggling to pay for your child’s breakfast/lunch, please let us know how we can help you. The Free or Reduced Lunch program is available and we can help you complete the form if needed. At the end of the year, the school is responsible for paying the lunch charges. The amount comes out of our budget. Please let me know how we can help you with this issue!
Below is the link to complete the form for free and reduced lunches. Once you are approved, this will apply to any charges going forward but DOES NOT cover anything prior to the completion of the application. Unfortunately, you will continue to receive a bill on this balance. A new form MUST be completed EVERY year. If you have any questions, please call our cafeteria bookkeeper. Click on the link below and it will take you directly to the application site.
