Dear GES Families:

Below are some important reminders and upcoming events:

The Gilford School Board meeting will be held on Monday, Feb. 6th at 6:00PM here at GES. The full agenda is attached for your information. Gilford Elementary School is in the first round for the prestigious “School of the Year” award offered by the independent, nonprofit New Hampshire Excellence in Education Awards board. On February 7th, staff members will present to the “ED”ies board in Concord. We will be giving an overview of the presentation at the School Board meeting on Monday night.

I hope everyone is enjoying the last chapters of our One School, One Book. We are excited about our Family Fun Night planned for Saturday, February 18th from 4-7PM. There will be sledding, dancing, crafts and an obstacle course that will help bring our book to life.

Our Jump Rope for Heart event will be held the Friday before vacation, 2/24 and collection envelopes will be due on that day.  If you have any questions, please contact Preston Ingram,

The Deliberative Session on the school budget will be held at 7:00PM on February 9th in the high school auditorium.  For more information on the school budget, check out the budget presentation on our website

Valentine’s Day is coming up and our EarlyAct Club is raising money by selling carnations for $1.00 each from February 6th - February 10th. The carnations will be delivered on Valentine’s Day. The order forms went home in backpacks and there are extras in the front office. If you have any questions contact, Katie Bryant,  Thank you for supporting our EarlyAct Club.

Please make note of the date change for Gilford PTA and Gilford Together’s presentation of High and Seek. The new date is Thursday, Feb. 23rd starting at 6:00PM at GES.  This is an adult only presentation. See the attached flyer for more details.
