If you missed the weekly call from GME Principal, Dr. Roseboom, consider updating your child's emergency card. Messages concerning the week of 10/30 through 11/3 are listed below.
Hello George Marks Families. This is your principal, Dr. Roseboom. Report cards should have been received on Friday, 10/27, indicating student performance for the first grading period. Our intermediate awards programs will be held on Friday, 11/3, at 8:10 for 4th grade, 9:00 for 3rd, and 9:40 for 5th. Also this week, 3rd graders go on a field trip to the Museum of Arts and Science, Davinci Club Jr. will meet on Monday and Thursday, and Wednesday is an ERD. Everyday students may arrive on campus between 7:30 when supervision begins and the first bell at 7:50 a.m. Students are to enter class by the 7:55 tardy bell to begin the instructional day. For those participating in the Flu Shot date on 11/9, please be sure to send your consent this week. Picture Day is coming soon on 11/14; prepaid orders will be due at picture time or online at the Leonards.com website. As the weather become cooler, consider layering long sleeves under the uniform shirt, selecting a long sleeve uniform shirt, or providing a jacket to wear over the uniform shirt. Leggings under shorts and skirts have been permitted at GME, but students will still need to wear shorts and skirts of appropriate length to the middle of the thigh or longer. Friday is spirit day, allowing students to wear their school t-shirt, a solid t-shirt of any color, or a uniform shirt of any color. This Friday the kindergarten color is yellow. Students are still expected to follow the school uniform dress code. Please confirm your child is dressing appropriately for school each day at George Marks Elementary, where everyone succeeds together.
