Jump Rope for Heart

GES is thrilled to support the American Heart Association to help teach our students how to take care of their hearts through the Jump Rope for Heart program. Funds raised support the American Heart Association’s research and educational incentives that save lives in our community. This year students who register on-line will earn a glow-in-the-dark wristband. Go to to register.

Monies will not be collected until February 14th.


Have you every thought about being a writer? Well, Melinda Long began her writing career on a rainy day when she was six. Her mother, tired of hearing how bored Melinda was, told her to write a story about Yogi Bear and friends. She even gave Melinda a typewriter to use. It was so much fun, Melinda just kept writing. Now it’s one of her favorite things to do.

If you would like to hear more about Melinda Long’s writing career, be sure to join us at GES on Thursday, January 18 for Literacy Night. Melinda will give a parent presentation from 6:30-7:00 pm, then students will be able to travel to stations that include walk the plank, pirate puppets, and a photo booth. It will be an exciting night.

We hope to see many families on Thursday night!
