April 22 is Earth Day
We would like our Grayson Elementary School Community to get in the green mindset and celebrate Earth Day!
Here are some classroom and family friendly activities you can participate in for Earth Day 2019:
1. Cut your carbon footprint by riding the bus, walking with an adult, or carpooling to school on April 22.
2. Bring in one piece of great condition clothing for our clothing drive. GES will have a clothing collection bin in the front lobby on Monday, April 22. Great-condition clothing will be donated to the Salvation Army. There, the clothing is sorted, priced and placed on the sales floor for secondhand shoppers to find.
3. Bash the Trash! As a family or classroom, pick up trash around Grayson Elementary and our community!
4. Wear Green on Monday, April 22 in honor of Earth Day!
Parent information encouraged as GES makes class lists for 2019-20
It is that time of the year when we will begin making class lists for the 2019-2020 school year. Please let us know if there are any concerns or information that you feel we should know about your child. Remember that we cannot honor requests for specific teachers for next year. Please put your concerns or information in writing to RoseMary Ruffner (Counselor) by Fri., April 26.
You may also e-mail your concerns or information to: firstname.lastname@example.org
