Update from our spiritwear company, Advertees: Spiritwear has shipped and we should get it by Thursday at the latest. We will post another update once everything arrives.
Please consider coming to advocate for Gunpowder! We are in desperate need of additional parking spaces, a SAFE drop-off point for our walkers, as well as a redesigned bus loop and parking lot. The GES community should have a voice in where money is being spent so I hope to see you there.
For more information regarding the meeting, contact Daya Chaney Webb at 443.388.6379 or firstname.lastname@example.org
Thanks, Jenn Holt

Flyers for our 5th grade “Class of 2015″ T-shirts were sent home this week. Ms. Levush personally hand delivered them to the classrooms and told the kids they needed to take them home so hopefully you all got it. In case you didn’t, you can find it below. We are missing a lot of children’s sizes. Please sign-up ASAP so we can get this order sent in time to get these shirts before the Bingo Fundraiser in early November. If parents want a shirt, you can order one too. Just send in your $8 or $10 to school no later than Monday. Thanks!!!

Prices start at only $7 for a short sleeved tee, with no shipping charges. Point your browser to http://adverteesva.com/
Hello GES Family,
A few updates and reminders about our candy bar sale:
All money is due by Friday, October 3rd. You are welcome to send it in sooner.
We are doing weekly drawings on Monday mornings for a 5Ib chocolate bar for all those who sold a case of chocolate during the previous week and turned in their money by Friday. So turn your money in tomorrow, 9/26 to be entered into the drawing on Monday, 9/29!
Our 1st winner was Emily L (Mrs. Rayner’s Class)!!!! Congratulations Emily!!!!!
For those who have requested additional candy, candy will be available for pickup or will be sent home with your child (per your request) tomorrow, Friday, 9/26.
We would like to sincerely thank all of our families who are participating in this fundraiser. It takes a huge effort for our community to come together and make this fundraiser successful. You have our gratitude. We understand that sometimes it is difficult to sell every last bar within you case, though if at all possible, we would greatly appreciate any effort to do so, as this candy cannot be returned to World’s Finest.
For any questions please contact Felicia Steele, Candy Chair at firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you again!
