  • Choir Performance - On Broadway

     

    Our fourth and fifth grade choir students, led by the direction of Mrs. Lambert, shined this morning during their performance of "On Broadway" for the GES students. Performers shared all about the Broadway experience while they sang and danced to various show tunes, complete with costume changes for each song! The stage is even decorated with a plethora of different broadway posters! The choir has been working for several months to prepare for this awesome performance! We hope you can join us on Thursday, Jan. 28th at 6:30 to see the show in the GES cafeteria!

  • Firefighter Visit

     

    Kindergartden had a super hero come to school on Thursday!  They are studying community helpers and Firefighter Mitchell came to school to share with them about his important job.  He told them about fire safety, what to do if their house caught on fire, and that they needed to have a plan where they would meet their family if that ever happened.  He told them about what a firefighter's day looks like and then their most favorite part, he showed his suit.  He told students about every piece of his equipment and why it is important for his job.  Thank you for Mr. Mitchell for sharing with our students!

  • Party Day Information

     

    Students are invited to wear the PJs to school on Friday, 12/18. All holiday parties will begin at 10:45am and end at our 11:45 dismissal time. Please remember that ALL dress code policies remain in place and only school appropriate PJs are allowed. I also want to make you aware of new guidelines for party day. We WILL be using Raptor for checking in all of our guests and visitors on 12/18. We are also trying a new "Fast Pass" system to check in our frequent visitors and volunteers.

    Please read more about the "Fast Pass" opportunity:

    All visitors and volunteers who plan on attending the parties will need to check in and receive a badge in the front office. We will be utilizing our normal Raptor badge system which requires a valid photo ID. If you would like to speed up the process in obtaining your badge, please contact us ahead of time and we will have your badge pre-printed and available in our "Fast Pass" line*. You may start notifying us beginning Monday, 12/14, by emailing Heather Hedges (heather.hedges@gcisd.net). *This "Fast Pass" will only work if you have been at GES this school year and we have already scanned your photo ID. Any visitor who has not been here, or didn't let us know in advance, will have to wait while photo IDs are scanned and their badge is processed. Please note that a photo ID will be shown in order to pick up your fast pass and as always, to check in to the system for the first time. Please let us know between Monday morning and Thursday, 12/17, at noon to avoid the crowds and long waits on Friday. Room parents will be able to check after 9am to set up for class parties. Also, please note that students will NOT be signed out early from their classrooms or party locations. Any student leaving before 11:45 will need to proceed to the front office with an adult to be checked out. Students who leave early will receive a partial day absence.

    We hope you will take advantage of this new "Fast Pass" concept and avoid the crowds and long waits. We appreciate your support as we work to improve a process while ensuring the safety and security of all of our GES Stars!

    Gina Sharp

     

    As of last Friday, we have a new face to greet you each time you visit GES! Please help us give a warm welcome to our new Administrative Assistant, Mrs. Gina Sharp. We are thrilled to have her join our front office team! Our long term substitute, Robin Robbins, will work alongside Gina to offer training the next few days. Please show Gina your grace and patience as you to check in the next few weeks to volunteer and/or eat with your student. She is a fast learner, but we know the many systems we have in place require a lot of time to master. Thanks for your continued support of the GES front office staff and your warm welcome for Gina!
