Stop & Shop A+ Rewards
We earned $5,000 by participating in the 2015-2016 Stop & Shop A+ Rewards Program! Thank you to everyone who supported this initiative!
Fall Scholastic Book Fair
Thank you to all who supported the Fall Book Fair; we enjoyed seeing so many parent volunteers! The students had fun shopping for new books. Based on our sales total of just over $5,600, we earned $2,800 Scholastic Dollars. We used these dollars to purchase books for the GES School Library, for each of our teachers in grades K - 5 and for the GES Reading Room.
We look forward to the Spring 2017 Book Fair. It will be a Buy One, Get One Free Fair!

Kindergarten students created their square 1 art designs during an art class at school. Square 1 Art paper was sent home for all remaining students in Grades 1 - 5. Each student who submits an original artwork by October 4th will receive a free page of Stickers from Square 1 Art. Catalogs will be sent in late October.
