Winter Adventures!!

posted Nov 22, 2017, 12:43 PM by Jean Ebel


For those of you that are new to GES you may not know about Winter Adventures. It's a fun, after-school program, held in January and February. Winter Adventures was developed by our PTA to help GES students pass the LONG Wisconsin winters. In order for Winter Adventures to be successful, we rely on parent/staff volunteers to run a 1-hour course after school. You decide the day and the class theme. Classes typically run from 3:25-4:30 p.m. I've attached a flyer that will go in the Wolf Blast with ideas on classes that can be or have been offered in the past. The skies the limit...well actually, the PTA will fund $35 for courses, so $35 is the limit. :) Please consider taking an hour from your already hectic schedules, pair with other teachers/parents if you'd like and have some fun with GES students. More information is included in the attachment. CLICK HERE

If interested or if you have any questions, feel free to contact me (lisakivioja@yahoo.com) or Jessica Van Sluys (jessicajeantuttle@hotmail.com).
