Dear GES Families:

Gilford Elementary School is fortunate to host another Artist in Residence program this year and welcome Lesley Smith as our resident artist.  Lesley is a world-class ventriloquist, puppeteer and singer/songwriter who has decades of experience working in schools and with organizations to inspire and educate on critical life and social skills.  

Through art, technology, music, storytelling and dance our learners will share their perspectives on “Loving Our Backyard.”  This residency will celebrate Gilford through the lens of history, culture, arts, environment, values and relationships.

Over the next five weeks, GES learners will collaborate with the Integrated Arts team to create various representations of our own backyard and share these presentations at one of two performances on Friday, October 26th at GES.  More information will be shared soon with specific details for these performances.

Classroom web pages:  We have taken down our classroom pages as we work to make all of our web pages ADA compliant.  Our staff will continue to use email, newsletters and google classroom to communicate with families.

PTA Membership Drive: We sincerely appreciate your help and support! Everyone that becomes a member will be entered into a raffle for a local spa.  Membership drives ends October 12th. We are shooting for 100% participation! Click here:



School Spirit Wear: The online store is open from Sept 17 - Sept 28. Use this site to purchase clothing.


Have a great week!


Danielle Bolduc, GES Principal
