Kindness takes Courage

Dear GES Families:

Please see below for important information:

Next Wednesday we are wearing ORANGE to show our courage and kindness. We are so fortunate to have such a caring community that supports one another.

For planning purposes, we will need to know your preference for the 2nd trimester (December 14 - March 26).  Please complete this form once for EACH learner that lives in your household that attends Gilford Elementary School.  Please use the surveys sent by the other principals for children who attend the other schools.  The survey is due by Noon on October 26th.  Thank you. For clarification purposes, we are defining “Enhanced Remote Learning” as a regular school day: working 8:30-3:00 with multiple live meets throughout the day for whole group, small group, and individual instruction and daily assignments. Parental support is required.

A reminder that the wishing tree area is for learners who are walking home or who are spending time in the village area. We have noticed some families utilizing the wishing tree area as another "drop-off"/"pick-up" location while parking on Belknap Mountain Road. We ask that all families use the designated loop for pick-up/drop-off and help us keep Belknap Mountain Road cleared of parked cars during such high traffic times of the day.

The National PTA Reflections program provides opportunities for recognition and access to the arts which boost student confidence and success in the arts and in life. (See attached information)
