Dear GES Families:

March is National Nutrition Month! It focuses attention on the importance of making informed food choices and developing sound eating and physical activity habits. The theme for 2018  is "Go Further with Food". Whether it's starting the day off right with a healthy breakfast or fueling before an athletic event, the foods you choose can make a real difference. This year's theme urges us to find ways to cut back on food waste. We will host lunchtime nutrition talks every Friday during March. Week 1 included composting information (see below). All learners will be encouraged to compost food during lunches. Week 2 is a focus on healthy snacks. Week 3 will focus on fueling our body for athletic events. Week 4 will focus on physical activity. We are planning on doing a relay race with all classrooms.

Here are some important events coming up!

  • Voting day is Tuesday, March 13th

  • The March 21st early release will be set aside for optional parent conferences

  • Our volunteer steering committee will once again hold a family skate night on Saturday, March 17th from 1:45-3:15 at the Merrill Fay Ice Arena.

Also, Gilford Baseball and Gilford Youth Softball  flyers are attached.

Remember to turn your clocks forward an hour this weekend.

Have a great weekend!

Danielle Bolduc, GES Principal
