GES News 3/30/21
Greetings Families! I hope everyone had a renewing spring break that included some special time with family! Thank you to families who traveled and are keeping their students at home in distance learning mode. Your consideration for the safety of others is appreciated by many in the GES realm! We are happy to welcome back additional students to in-person learning this week, as well as a new student in the Bear Cubs and Lynx classrooms. Welcome!

PLANT WATERERS NEEDED - Perhaps you have seen glowing light coming from the GES windows at night. Plant sale seeds have been sowed, and are under grow lights. In fact, the marigolds are 4 inches high already! Now we need help keeping everything watered. If you can assist in this way, please email plant sale coordinator, Erik Hahn

Photo of the week: Building relationships among the different classrooms and ages is an important part of life at GES. While social distancing has meant less interaction among the different classrooms this year, the students and staff still find ways to show their appreciation for the others in the building. Last month the Wolves class painted murals for the younger students to hang up in their classrooms, which they gave as a Valentine's Day gift. Finding creative ways to show kindness to the other classrooms helps strengthen the community at GES while we spend more time than usual apart this year.As always, please call the office if you have any questions on school related items. I am glad to assist you!
