Dear GES Families:20170909_131314.jpg

Thank you to everyone that donated to our supply drive. We sent several boxes of supplies to Texas last week. Also, thanks to a wonderful group of parents and children the front of our school is looking fabulous!

September 15th is International Dot Day and this week our school will be celebrating creativity, courage and collaboration. Our integrated arts teams has many exciting lessons planned throughout the week. Every child will paint a rock to highlight their individuality and the rocks will be displayed in the front of our school. Be sure to check it out.

Policy Development

The school board reviewed three policies at its September meeting for first reading. Click here to review the policies.

REMINDER:A fingerprint background check is required in all Gilford schools for individuals, volunteers and chaperones engaged in the following activities:

  • classroom volunteers
  • chaperones on field trips
  • assisting at school activities such as dances, plays and concerts

Once a thorough background investigation and criminal records check is complete with no disqualifying records, the volunteer will be issued an identification badge to be worn every time the volunteer works in the school. We have a volunteer orientation this week on September 12th at 2:30 in the GES Cafe. If you have not been fingerprinted, please call the SAU for an appointment at 527-9215. Registration for Gilford Got Lunch is ready to begin.(See attachment) Also, the Gilford Youth Center will be hosting the 6th annual Summer End Celebration on September 22nd from 6-10PM.
