Dear GES Families:

I am so excited for the magic of school to begin! The Volunteer Steering Committee will once again host our Back To School Open House on August 29th from 5:00-6:00PM. You won’t want to miss all the information tables, opportunities to sign up for volunteering, touring our school and checking out your child’s classroom. The VSC will be selling pizza, water and popcorn in the cafeteria.

Please note that we have an updated policy for volunteers. All volunteers will need to be fingerprinted prior to volunteering in our schools including chaperoning field trips.  We have scheduled fingerprinting in the front office the night of Open House.  Please bring a current photo ID.

Our first day of school is Wednesday, August 30th. Our bus routes are online or you can call the bus company for pick up and drop off times at 524-0212. Drop off begins at 8:10 and our school day begins at 8:30 am.  We are asking that families drop off children at the front of the school. As a parent of 4 boys, I understand how hard the first day of school can be for you and your child. We ask that parents let their children walk into school on their own.  This really helps start a consistent routine for all of us.  Dropping your child/children off outside minimizes the distractions associated with multiple adults being in the classroom. There are staff members helping guide your child/children into their classrooms safely.  Your support in following these guidelines is greatly appreciated. The safety and comfort of our learners is our number one priority. We promise to take great care of them! I am looking forward to another wonderful year!

Danielle Bolduc, GES Principal
