We had an awesome day at school today! The students got to do pumpkin math with Mrs. Crawford and Halloween science with Mrs. Crumpton. Watch the video below to see a cool demonstration with dry ice from Steve Spangler Science! Also, you can click here for directions to make "Quicksand." This is a fun activity that uses materials most of us have lying around the house. Of course, ask you parent's permission before trying anything like this!  

 Thanks to all the parents that sent in treats. We appreciate all you do for us! Have a safe and happy Halloween!

The last day to take the multiplication speed test is Monday, October 11. If students do not make a 100 on this day, they will receive the score they make.

We would like to remind everyone to keep selling cookie dough! This is a very important fundraiser at GES because the profits are going towards technology equipment. We have a few incentives in place for students who sell cookie dough. 

  * Students will receive a raffle ticket for each thing of cookie dough they sell.
  * If an entire homeroom class sells 30 things of cookie dough, we will get an extra recess!
  * If a homeroom class sells 60 things of cookie dough, we will have a popcorn/movie party!

Remember that you must turn in your money with the cookie dough orders.

Finally, thank you to our room moms and everyone who helped make the Fall Carnival such a success! We appreciate all you do for us!
