Good Afternoon GES Family,
We have our first week of school already down. I hope that everyone has been adjusting well and is looking forward to another great week ahead.
Unlike last year, this year I will be doing my weekly “email” blast on our website by way of a post. You have the option to receive this post and any others we make on our website during the week by signing up for our email list (located in the bottom right hand corner of this page). Your weekly email will come on Sunday afternoon around 2pm and will include all the posts for the prior week and will list any upcoming events.
We are off to a great year and have many fun and exciting things planned for the GES community. Below I have listed a few committee updates and upcoming PTA and School events/activities for the coming weeks. As always, feel free to contact myself or another PTA board member with any questions or concerns.
Thanks and have a great week GES Family!
GES PTA President
