Dear GES Families:

I hope you are staying warm today!  As a reminder, please send in winter clothes for your child every day. The health office is running out of winter coats, hats, mittens for children to borrow.

McDonald’s in Laconia will be holding an arthritis fundraiser and educator celebration on January 21st from 5pm-7pm during which 20% of all proceeds will be donated to the Arthritis Foundation. Yes, that's right, tonight!  As McDonald’s is a sponsor of the Excellence in Education Awards, Mr. Johnston has invited representatives from the area schools who have won EDies in the past few years. A presentation will be made at 6pm. We would love to see you there!

If you have a blizzard bag at home, please return these bags (incomplete) back to school. We will keep them here at school until the next blizzard bag day is called. We hope this will keep bags from going missing and provide the opportunity for families to get in the habit of returning bags to school.

We are continuing our commitment to supporting our  local community by collecting food for Gilford Got Lunch.  Gilford Got Lunch is a program that provides food to local families who are in need of assistance both during the school year and over the summer.  Our goal is to collect 100 food items per grade:

Kindergarten: boxes of pasta
First grade: canned fruits/vegetables
Second grade: plastic jars of peanut butter
Third grade: plastic jars of jelly
Fourth grade: canned soup

Please note that Gilford Got Lunch cannot accept glass jars or any expired or outdated food. Also, items need to be 20 ounces or less.  Our tentative 100th day of school will be February 13th. Let’s start collecting and see if we can collect 100 items per grade. We will share our progress at Showcase on February 8th!

The next Volunteer Clinic/Orientation is scheduled for:

Tuesday, January 29, 2019 ~ 8:00 a.m - 9:00 a.m. at the SAU office
