  • May 29, 2018 Dear GES Families:We certainly had a wonderful week at GES.  We started with a fun cookout and successful book fair before showing off our community connections at the Community Partners Night. The next day we were amazed by Hagerman, the Science Wizard and we ended the week celebrating Memorial Day.

This work helped them to prepare for the Yard Sale this weekend.The 4th grade chorus did an amazing job at their Dig It! performance and at ...
