This newsletter serves as weekly communication from the campus regarding various activities and reminders. It will be sent out each Monday around 10am, unless Monday is a student holiday and then you can expect it on Tuesday morning. Grade level newsletters are linked at the bottom, but will also be sent on Mondays from your homeroom teachers.
In this newsletter you will find campus announcements, district announcements, and the latest information from our GES PTA. It also has a link to the GES Campus Activities calendar, which has up-to-date information on all student activities. We encourage you to use the live calendar so any updates will always be reflected.
We thank you for taking the time to read the newsletter each week and partnering with us in your child's education.
All my best,
Campus Activities and Events
This is a live Google Calendar that we will keep updated throughout the year with campus activities. Click the calendar to open it up so you can switch to week or month view and look at future dates. Please check back frequently for new additions.
Grade Level Newsletters
All grade level newsletters will also be sent out weekly directly to families from your homeroom teachers. Grade level newsletters can be accessed using the links below.
In order to volunteer at GES, or around GCISD, all volunteers must:
- read the Volunteer Handbook (this replaces the previous face to face volunteer trainings held on campus)
- watch the appropriate video included in the handbook
- electronically sign the verification Google form for each campus you plan to volunteer
- complete the volunteer background check. A link is included in the handbook.
The following link takes you to the online Volunteer Handbook and background check: https://www.gcisd.net/cms/one.aspx?pageId=195550
When you are ready to volunteer at GES, feel free to call the front office at 817-251-5735 to verify that both of the required steps have been recorded as completed. We appreciate your support as you complete these steps and volunteer to work with our GES students.
Parents and loved ones are welcome to join for lunch. Please ensure you have a valid photo ID anytime you come to school. Visitors may park in the lot off Hughes to access our new main entrance and must check-in with the front office.
