Teaching and learning develop power skills in all students.

GES is a service-oriented center of learning, committed to family and community partnerships.

Every adult at GES will be equipped with the skills, resources, and support necessary to empower every child to be a successful learner.

Happy Friday, GES Families! Many of you have asked about volunteer opportunities at GES, and you can find a list of needs and the volunteer form under the Volunteer menu. Our first Volunteer Orientation will be on our first Collaborative Planning Day, Wednesday, September 19, at 8:00 a.m. in the Learning Commons. We hope you can join us for a light breakfast and to learn more about how to be involved here at GES. We will also introduce you to our GES Family Center at this time. Please RSVP to me at 803-821-1610 or kpatterson@lexington1.net, so I can have your visitor pass ready for you when you arrive. We appreciate you and look forward to seeing you on September 19!
