Dragons Love Tacos Bookcover

Dear GES Families:

We had a wonderful first week!  Our learners were excited to share their summer activities, learn about the life cycle of a butterfly, and began speaking Spanish. 

Book Pick: Dragons Love Tacos (Adam Rubin) When a little boy discovers that dragons like to eat tacos, he decides to host a taco party for them. But if a fire-breathing dragon accidentally gets a bite of spicy salsa, look out! A silly story about a dragon party that turns into a disaster.


On October 1st we are planning a full day of field experiences for all of our learners. We will need plenty of chaperones so consider joining us for a fun day of learning and exploration. Please remember all chaperones must have been approved by the SAU and wear their GSD ID’s.  Please watch for field trip permission slips coming home soon.
