Important Dates & Information

GES Families,

A new school year with a new class or new teacher provides wonderful opportunities to meet new friends as well as reconnect with familiar ones. And both of those are important for students. The ability to adapt to new people and places is more important than ever in a world where young people today are projected to have between twelve and fifteen jobs in their lifetime. The comfort of a familiar face is always appreciated, but new faces provide endless possibilities if we look for them. 
As we look forward to reconnecting and building new relationships, we are so excited to welcome over 730 students into the elementary school this year! This growth has provided us opportunities for starting new traditions, inviting new faces, and experiencing some changes such as staff in new positions and returning to our former kindergarten building. This building, which accommodated the maintenance office for 6 years, and has been newly renovated, will house Mrs. Miller and Mrs. Stewart's kindergarten classes. We are excited about all the changes that have been made to our building and are grateful for the hard work of our maintenance staff preparing all of GES for a great school year. A new tradition will be transitioning from PAX Leaders to Blue Ace Leaders as GIS joins our vision to support student and staff community. Our new faces will include students and staff. We are welcoming 11 new staff members, and you can read all about them here
