Dates to Remember:
4th and 5th Graders work on Writing Traits - The fourth and fifth grade classes began a combined writing unit using the 6 + 1 Traits of Writing. This method of teaching writing is an excellent, research based program. We will be using it throughout this school year to develop fantastic, imaginative writers. pictures
First Day of Kindergarten -The first day of kindergarten was August 31st. Students were eager to learn on their first day of "big" school. pictures
First Day of School -The first day of school commenced with the GEMS grand re-opening of school ceremony. The students and parents all joined together for the presentation of the flag by the Girl Scouts. Our Deputy Garrison Manager, Maureen Riggs, shared a special message with the students and families to kick off the new school year. pictures
Back to School Night - Friday, August 23rd parents and students came to check out the school and to meet the teachers. The PTA then sponsored a fantastic barbeque to kick off the school year - thanks PTA!. We enjoyed meeting the students and parents and thank you for your support. pictures
