-We will be celebrating Red Ribbon Week October 22nd-26th. Please take a moment to read about our drug-free activities for the week. In classroom counseling, they will reinforce the importance of a healthy lifestyle.

Tuesday, October 23rd - Drugs and I Don't Match! Wear mismatch clothes.

Thursday, October 25th - Don't Be Caught Sleeping! Choose to Be Drug Free! Wear pajamas.
Friday, October 26th - Dragons Don't Do Drugs! Wear a Gretna spirit shirt.
-We have seen an increased number of tardies lately. Please allow extra time to get your students to school on time. The first bell rings at 7:50 a.m. and students are allowed down to the classroom. Students who are not in their seats at 8:00 a.m. are counted tardy.
-This year GES is sponsoring a Book Drive. We are seeking donations of any books you would be willing to give to the library. These books will be given to students as incentives to read. We could use any books that are in good condition (they do not need to be new); please bring them to the GES office or the media center. THANK YOU for your help with this drive!
-Fall Parties will be held Wednesday, October 31st. Costumes are not to be worn to school and should be easy to put on without assistance. No makeup or weapons of any kind will be allowed with any costume. The parade will begin at 1:30 and can be viewed in the gym. The classroom parties are from 1:45 to 2:45. To prevent disruption to the classroom, we ask parents to not arrive prior to 1:15 for party preparation. We also ask you to be courteous of our neighbors and avoid parkng in front of mailboxes.
-We've had some chilly days lately. Please dress your child(ren) appropriately for outdoor temperatures. We have outdoor recess when the temperature and/or wind chill is 10 degrees or above.
-Gretna Post Prom is sponsoring a Trunk or Treat event with the Gretna Area Chamber of Commerce. To pre-order tickets for the event, click here for more information.
-The art room would love any extra scrapbook, metallic, shimmery, glittery paper you no longer have a use for and curling ribbon in assorted colors! Thanks for all of your help! Ms. Pilant
