The last day of school is a significant day for students and staff.  The highlight of this year's last day of school was our final outdoor all school gathering, where graduating 8th graders were honored.  The 7th grade Otters sang a rendition of "Somewhere Over the Rainbow" to them and led the student body in a team building activity before the graduates were called out individually and cheered for by staff and their student peers.  Check out the pictures, below!

"Student designed" GES T-Shirts are still available, with a good selection remaining in two different designs!  Adult size - $25, Youth size - $20.  Water bottle stickers in these designs are $3.00 each.  ORDER FORM

The greenhouse will remain open through Friday, 6/10 to accommodate the late spring planting weather we are experiencing.  There is still a very nice selection of healthy, good size tomatoes, as well as herbs, peppers, kale and Ailsa Craig Onions!  Stop by soon (weekdays only)!

It's also not too late to drop off payment for your student's yearbook.  These were distributed this morning and classrooms enjoyed looking through and signing them with friends!
