Dear GES Families:


I hope you were not a victim to any April Fool's Jokes today. I won't lie, I was pretty happy to have it land on a Sunday this year! A parent input letter went home to help us gather information for class placements next year. If there is information which you would like to share please complete the form and RETURN TO SCHOOL BY FRIDAY, APRIL 6th. This is not a requirement.


Plan ahead for Mother's Day and Father's Day by ordering a special memento with your child's artwork from our school's fundraiser!  In addition, your child's artwork can be displayed permanently on the walls of GES with the purchase of a 6'x8' tile. Proceeds from this fundraiser will be used for our next Artist in Residence program in the Fall of 2018.  All orders and money must be returned by April 4th! Thank you for supporting the arts at GES!


April is National Poetry Month. The PTA will be holding their annual Poetry Contest. I’ve attached the flyer with more information. Please check it out.


Have a fantastic week!

Dear GES Families:


March is National Nutrition Month! It focuses attention on the importance of making informed food choices and developing sound eating and physical activity habits. The theme for 2018  is "Go Further with Food". Whether it's starting the day off right with a healthy breakfast or fueling before an athletic event, the foods you choose can make a real difference. This year's theme urges us to find ways to cut back on food waste. We will host lunchtime nutrition talks every Friday during March. Week 1 included composting information (see below). All learners will be encouraged to compost food during lunches. Week 2 is a focus on healthy snacks. Week 3 will focus on fueling our body for athletic events. Week 4 will focus on physical activity. We are planning on doing a relay race with all classrooms.


Here are some important events coming up!

  • Voting day is Tuesday, March 13th

  • The March 21st early release will be set aside for optional parent conferences

  • Our volunteer steering committee will once again hold a family skate night on Saturday, March 17th from 1:45-3:15 at the Merrill Fay Ice Arena.

Dear GES Families:


We had a wonderful week with many celebrations of learning.  Second grade learners shared their opinion writing with their families, third grade learners shared their research on famous people during their wax museum, and fourth graders shared their colonial trades project and to top off the week, our learners collected over $9,000 for the American Heart Association.  That's an all-time record for Jump Rope for Heart.


When we come back from vacation we will be celebrating Read Across America (March 5th - 9th) in different ways.  We will have a special Dr. Seuss lunch on Monday (3/5 ) which will include sliced ham, a hard boiled egg, and a small skewer of cheese and cherry tomato.  

Also, National Nutrition Month® is coming up in March. The campaign focuses attention on the importance of making informed food choices and developing sound eating and physical activity habits. The theme for 2018  is "Go Further with Food". Nurse Jenn with help from our Volunteer Steering Committee will be educating us during lunches every Friday in March. The first week we are focusing on composting and educating on food waste.


I hope you enjoy your winter break! Remember to keep reading and enjoy time with your family.


Danielle Bolduc, GES Principal

Greetings GES Families!

 

Thank you to the Volunteer Steering Committee for putting on another fun family event this past Saturday. There was plenty of hot soup, crafts and sledding for all.  We could have used some of the snow that fell last night :)

 

We are tapping maple trees! If you are out on the playground side of the school, you will notice that our learners are tapping maple trees. We have identified 10 maple trees this year and are hoping to collect enough sap to make some GES maple syrup.  It is a great way to keep a NH tradition alive.  

 

Remember we have our Crazy Hair Spirit Day this Friday along with Jump Rope for Heart during Specials Block!

 

We could still use your help with events scheduled in the next few weeks! Please click on the link below if you are able to help out! Thank you so much for your continued support!
