Hello Guardians,
The PTO needs 2 volunteers on April 27th from 4.50 to 6 pm. It is kindergarten orientation night and we would like to welcome new families and sell t-shirts.

Hello all! I wanted to drop a quick message in response to all the texts and messages I have been receiving regarding families viewing the kids' Science/STEM Fair presentations. I checked with Ms. Flynn today and there will be no family viewing options - in person or virtual.

We could not have our normal after school in person Science/STEM Fair as we did pre-2020 due to COVID. Therefore, we decided to do the Science/STEM Fair during school hours as opposed to not at all. Ms. Bailey and I have volunteered countless hours to organize this event for the kids.

We are not going to have any virtual viewing, live streaming, or recorded Google Meets for each class because Ms. Flynn said the file sharing would be too large.

I hope this clears up the questions I have been receiving. I felt like it was important to get an official word from Ms. Flynn and then to communicate it one time to the GLES families.

Ms. Bailey and I hope that every child who chose to participate is learning a lot about science and is having a wonderful time.

-Tiffany
