Things are in full swing at SGES! We had a different kind of week with the half-day on Monday, day off on Tuesday and late start on Wednesday. Today we celebrate St. Patrick’s Day with a “Wearin’ o’ the Green” day. There have also been leprechaun sightings in many a classroom, but don’t worry. Our first graders have been busy making leprechaun traps as part of their science lessons. Students have needed to problem solve, choose materials, work collaboratively and create traps they feel will catch the leprechauns that may live in our building! Students have greatly enjoyed this and other STEM lessons that have them building with recycled materials.
Mrs. Horgan has asked me to remind you that all first graders will need to have a physical on record for second grade. Please remember to send in a copy after your child’s physical for their records. Thank you.
Our PTO is having their second community get together. The SPRING FLING is a ticketed event and tickets are currently on sale. This was such a fun event last year, bringing together both moms and dads as we celebrated their hard work for our students at SGES. Please consider attending this event, as those who participated last year had a great time. Please consider attending this fun event. For more information, please go to www.sgpto.org.
There is also a community event being held by the Friends of Grafton. Please see the attached flyer for information.
