Dear GES Families:

I hope you all enjoyed the beautiful weather this weekend. Our family enjoyed getting lost in the corn maze today. I was sorry to miss the energy of the building on a showcase Friday.  I heard it was wonderful!

Last week I traveled to Columbia University for a Leadership Institute on the importance of reading and writing. One point of research I wanted to share was the direct correlation between academic success and access to a wide number of books in the home. The two most powerful factors for improving reading motivation and comprehension were a child’s access to many books and personal choice of what to read.  So keep those bookshelves full!  

I am enclosing the School Board Budget work sessions for 2017. On Tuesday, October 24th, the elementary school budget will be presented at 5:30 in the SAU.


Calling all soccer players ages 5-9.

Lakes Region United has been running an Early Development Program (EDP) on Tuesdays and Saturdays this Fall. We focus on building foot skills and learning the basics of field play.

We plan to have Winter and Spring sessions as well. Please come join us on Saturday October 21 or October 28 to try it out. We will be at the Elementary School Field from 10-12:30.
