Dear GES Families:

This week your child brought home our One School book, Confessions of An Imaginary Friend by Michelle Cuevas. With all of these snow delays and school cancellations, I hope you had some extra family time to read together.  Each week there will be comprehension questions. We will send home the next set of questions on Monday. If you would like to read ahead over the long weekend, please read Chapters 13 - 24.  We have a family fun night planned for February 21st from 5:30 to 7:30pm. We will have food, crafts and fun activities planned.

Just a reminder that we will not have school tomorrow (Friday, January 25th). Our district staff will be working on a Portrait of a Learner.

We are continuing to collect 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Please note that Gilford Got Lunch cannot accept glass jars or any expired or outdated food.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
