Dear GES Families:


We just finished a fantastic Read Across America Spirit Week!  The learners were very excited to dress up!  


Also, Nurse Jenn spoke to all of the classes on Friday about the importance of staying hydrated as part of our March Nutrition Month. This week she will start each morning with a mindful minute.


We are gearing up for our annual pancake breakfast that will take place on Saturday, March 28th from 9:00 to 11:00.(See attached flyer for details and to RSVP). Join us before breakfast for our family friendly Sap Run at 8:30am.  Bring your entire family to run or walk by our beautiful maple trees along our 3 mile course. We will finish at our SWEET sugar shack in time for a hot breakfast of pancakes and real NH maple syrup tapped by our learners.(See flyer for details)

Maple Facts: 

Did you know: Pure maple syrup contains vitamins and minerals – at approximately 110 calories per serving (2 tablespoons). It is an excellent source of manganese and a good source of riboflavin. Pure maple syrup is also a source of calcium, thiamine, potassium, and copper.


Have a great week!
