Lost and Found

Please be sure your child’s name is written inside any article of clothing that they might remove during recess. We try our best to get these back to the rightful owner, but most found items do not contain a name and this makes that task difficult. The Lost and Found closet is located in the 700 building near the cafeteria. Recently, jackets were put on display in the hallway leading to the cafeteria. Tell your child to look at the jackets hanging there to see if one belongs to him or her.

Guidance News

Our guidance counselors are busy learning and leading your children. If you need to contact a counselor, please contact the counselor who is assigned to your child’s class.

Mrs. Ginger McCullar is working with all 5th grade classes. She is also working with the following fourth grade classes: Brunson, Clamp, Kyzer, Miller, and Weymouth.

Mrs. Edie Burritt is working with all 3rd grade classes. She is also working with the following fourth grade classes: Gibbons, Johansson, S. Moore, and Oswald.


Medication Policy

If your child will need medication at school during the 2013-2014 school year, please note that The South Carolina DHEC policy for prescription and non-prescription  medications administered in the schools requires a physician signature in addition to a parent signature on the “State Medication Permission Form . You can print this form by going to the “For Parents” link at the top of this page, scroll down to and click on “Medication Consent Forms,” or  you may pick up a form from the school.Please remember that medication given at school MUST be provided to the school in the original labeled container.

PTO Memberships

Please consider joining the GES PTO if you have not already done so.  The $5.00 membership fee does not obligate you to attend meetings or volunteer (although those things are very important to the success of “our” students!).  Send $5.00 to your child’s homeroom teacher along with your name, address, phone numbers, and email address in an envelope marked ‘PTO membership dues.’ Click here to print the PTO Membership form.  In return you will receive your membership card along with a thank-you gift bag from the GES PTO.  We want every class to have 100% membership!”
