Dear GBE Families,

Our first Curbside Pickup for Preschool through 2nd Grade was a success last Friday! We were able to deliver student belongings for many students in Preschool, Kindergarten, 1st Grade, and 2nd Grade through the rain! Thank you for your cooperation.

We will continue our Curbside Pickup with 3rd Grade, 4th Grade, and 5th Grade this Friday from 9:00 am to 12:00 pm. Families received an E-Notify message last Friday to sign up for a time to pick up student belongings. Please post on the passenger’s side window a piece of paper with your student name(s) and homeroom teacher's name(s). 6th grade will have a separate curbside pickup on June 12th.

Mrs. Lorenzi emailed 6th Grade families on Friday afternoon to share our plans to celebrate our students on June 12th! Families, please reach out if you have any questions. We hope to have a great Sixth Grade Send-Off on June 12th!
