GES News 5/18/21
Greetings GES Friends and Families! This weekend is the long-awaited GES Plant Sale! Flowers and vegetables are flourishing in the heat of the greenhouse. Just look at these tomatoes! Soon they will be in the gardens of happy plant sale customers, like you! Many thanks to our diligent plant waterers, Carrie Jansen, Johanna Larson, Dane Kufa and especially Erik Hahn, who not only watered all these tender babies four days a week, but also planted, transplanted and initially even ordered the seeds! The plant sale is traditionally Great Expectations largest fundraiser, and we could sure use additional help! There are currently only five people signed up to help with the entire sale. Thank you for considering if you can offer just 2.75 hours to assist with this great effort. See sale details below. MAPS testing continues this week for students in grades 3-8. Again, a good night’s sleep and nutritious breakfast will help students do their best work. Today, the Bear Cubs took a bus to George Washington Pines to learn about another entity in their community study: The US Forest Service. They learned about the goods and services that the Forest Service provides, as well as about their tools and uniforms. The Fawns will be spending time at the EDA Woods this week, while the Bear Cubs and Beavers plant to visit to the beach, if the weather cooperates.

Photos of the week: The Lynx class has been learning about the earth's biomes, and incorporated their creative skills into their learning by creating bioramas! Each diorama represent a different biome, including deserts, the tundra, and coral reefs. The Lynx used a variety of materials including clay, rocks, sand, and paint to complete their projects. The bioramas have been displayed in the Great Room for the whole school to enjoy. -Rae
