Happy fall to all!!

We have had a wonderful start to the school year here at WGES. Our students and teachers are working hard to meet the NYS Common Core Standards for all academic areas.

This week (10/27-31) is also a time of celebration. We continue to focus on our theme for the month, which is safety. Part of that focus is our Red Ribbon Week, and this week our students have been learning about how to stay away from drugs and their inherent dangers. As part of our anti-drug message, our school is raising money for People to People, and if we reach our goal of $500, I get to be doused with a seasonally-appropriate colored bucket of ice water! I'm told this will be fun, so we're going with it!

Also this Friday, we will celebrate Hallowe'en by inviting our students to wear their costumes to school, and also have parents join their children at the end of the day in their classrooms. Parents should receive information from their child's teacher regarding specifics.

Enjoy the week!
