Dear GES Families:

Over the past few weeks the GES learners have been working with our resident artist Lesley Smith a world-class ventriloquist, puppeteer and  singer/songwriter who has decades of experience working in schools and with organizations to inspire and educate on critical life and social skills.  

Through art, technology, music, storytelling and dance our learners have been working to share their perspectives on “Loving Our Backyard.”  This residency has and will celebrate Gilford through the lens of history, culture, arts, environment, values and relationships.

Our Artist in Residence Showcase(s) will be held on Friday, October 26th at 9:30 AM and 1:30 PM.  Please see the attached flyer for details of each performance.


Important Reminders:

  • Please return pink Biographical Information Sheets as soon as possible.  The office must have current information on file for emergencies. We still need over 75 forms to be returned.

  • The next Volunteer Clinic will be held on Wednesday, November 7, 2018 ~ 8:00 a.m. - 9:00 a.m at the SAU Office. The process takes approximately 20 minutes.  New sessions start every ten minutes. Photos will be taken for ID badge.
