Dear GES Families:

We had a great spirit day on Friday and it ended with a fantastic showcase! The learners also heard from Nurse Jenn about trying new foods and putting their best fork forward. They enjoyed a different type of cheese during all lunches.

Coming up this week:

  • A reminder that the softball clinic is this Sunday (3/26) for ages 8-13 from 10:00-11:30 and 11:30-12:30 for ages 3-7 at Gilford High School Gym.

  • We invite all families to end our March Nutrition Week with a family hike on Friday, March 31st. You can choose to hike the nature trail or challenge yourself to Mt. Rowe after school (4:00PM). The learners will all receive a hiking challenge brochure with 8 hikes listed. If they complete all the hikes, they can earn a special hiking metal. (Check out all the details on the attached brochure)

  • The 4th graders will be boiling the sap they have collected over the past 4 weeks on Friday, March 31st.

  • Report Cards come home on Friday. (3/31)


  • Please remember to send children with winter gear every day. The temperatures have been very cold lately and we have outdoor recess every day. The children also head outside for PE class on most days.
