We are well into the 2013-14 school year, and things have been off to a smooth, quick start at GMES. We appreciate the tremendous parent support for both our ASB FUNd RUN fundraiser as well as our GMES Booster Club fundraiser. Both of these events directly support activities in our school this year that will make GMES more fun and a better learning environment for students.
Here are some reminders that help our school provide our families with safe quick service: If your student is absent, please call our school attendance secretary Bridget Morris at 858-1820.
We have many vehicles moving through our parking lot at pick-up and drop-off times. Please use the pick-up and drop-off zones, and avoid letting students out at other locations in the parking lot. This keeps our students safer and increases the flow of traffic.
When picking up your child prior to the end of the school day, you need to come into the school and sign them out. We do frequently ask for ID until we get to know our parents, so please be prepared for that. In addition, if you are having someone else pick up your child from school, we need to hear directly from the parent/guardian. We cannot release students to other people without parent communication.
We run pick-up passes out to students each day about 2:00. Please notify the office before this time, so that we can get your student to the right place at the end of the day. Confusion about pick-up and bussing slows down departure for all of our students.
Volunteer background check forms were sent home with each student at the beginning of the year. If you plan on volunteering or chaperoning an event, we need to have this form completed in advance. If you need another copy please contact our office at 273-5512.
Please join us for family fun on Bingo Night Friday, October 25th!
Fall Conferences will be held the week of November 4th-8th. We hope to see each and every parent in attendance. Please contact your child’s teacher if you have not arranged a time. This means we will be on our early release schedule on Tue.-Fri. of that week.
