    Second graders start Friendship Fridays at their school.
     
    When you walk into Natalie Finch’s second grade classroom at Grapevine Elementary School, you can’t miss the paper chain links that are draped at the front of the room. Each of these links represent individual acts of kindness as part of Rachel’s Challenge, which motivates students to start a chain reaction of kindness and compassion to impact their school and community.

  • Camp Gladiator Fundraiser and Healthy Lifestyles Event
     
    GES needs your help! Thank you to those who have been working to secure pledges for participation in the Camp Gladiator Obstacle Course! This fundraiser benefits the campus activity fund, and money raised will be used to support campus initiatives, student incentives, and staff professional learning! Based on campus initiatives, our fundraising goal is: $12,000! We know that those who have already earned a key fob and spirit sticks are anxiously awaiting their prizes! We should be delivering them soon! More prize announcements are coming soon! Remember, the concept for the GES Camp Gladiator fundraising event is similar in design to a fun run. Families are encouraged to secure pledges for student participation in an obstacle course event hosted by Camp Gladiator. The pledges will be for completion of the course rather than the number of times the student goes through the course. Different pledge/donation levels are available, and students will be individually recognized for their fundraising efforts. Classroom incentives will also be awarded. The classroom incentives will be unique and developed by the students in the class. 
    Online donations are now available! 
    Thank you in advance for your efforts to contribute to and support our campus, our students, and our future!

    Attendance News
     

    Did you know attendance is a key component of overall success in school?  Research supports the unquestionable link between attendance and student achievement. Students who attend school between 85 and 100 percent of the time pass state tests in reading and math at much higher rates than students who attend school less than 85 percent of the time.

    Here are just a few ways we encourage and recognize our GES Stars for outstanding attendance:

     

    Outstanding Class Attendance Award

    Those classrooms with outstanding student attendance (all students have 0-3 absences) will receive recognition at the end of each nine week grading period. All Outstanding Class Attendance winners will receive a few special treats from Mrs. Blackburn and Ms. Ray in addition to a congratulatory poster to display in either the classroom or the hallway outside the classroom door.

     

    The following classes were recognized as our First Nine Weeks Outstanding Class Attendance Winners:

    Mrs. Eubank                         Mrs. Worthen

    Mrs. Garcia                           Mrs. Hammonds

    Mrs. King                               Mrs. Redmon

    Mrs. Lewis                             Mrs. Curnow

    Mrs. Cox                                Mrs. Gillmen

    Mrs. Kathman                      Mrs. Hendrickson

    Mrs. Choppy

     

    Zero Tardies Drawing

    Every three weeks those individual students with zero tardies will have their names placed in a drawing for various special rewards/treats from the Zero Tardy Prize Jar. Those students whose names are drawn will have the opportunity to take part in the KGES morning program and select a reward ticket from the Zero Tardy Prize Jar.

    Rewards or treats in the jar include items such as the opportunity to be a pledge leader on the KGES morning show, a FAST coupon, sit in the teacher’s chair for the day, a late work pass, etc. 

     

    Congratulations to the following students who took part in our first Zero Tardy Drawing this school year:

    Seth Vasquez

    Trey Blackstone

    Zakaiyah Pruitt

    Nathan Boudreaux

    Kate Swisher
