The Principal's Paper Clip
March was a short month for us due to Spring Break, which I hope you enjoyed. Our intermediate students will begin the Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers (PARCC). We appreciate your support by making certain that students get a good night’s sleep and arrive to school on time.
As we move into April, we will be making final preparations for the annual Multicultural Day. If you are an approved volunteer, have completed the volunteer training, and are available on April 22nd, please contact Mrs. Brooks, our Media Specialist. Part of the experience for students on this special day is food sampling. We need volunteers to help prepare the samples and keep them fresh as students rotate through the food stations. Multicultural day provides our students an opportunity to learn about the various cultures that make the United States such an
interesting place to live.
On April 14, we will begin registration for Head Start and Pre-Kindergarten for the 2016-2017 school year. The office will be open 10:00-2:00 for such registrations.
Please bring the following documents with you: proof of birth, proof of residency, proof of immunizations and income, any legal custody papers, and photo identification.
Please see the attached flyer or check out the documents on our web page at http://schools.smcps.org/ghes/.
April is Month of the Military Child and we will Purple Up on April 15th to recognize
this. We recognize the sacrifices that military families make for the freedom and security we enjoy as Americans, including the children. Our awards assembly will also take place that morning at 9:30. This is always an exciting event. We hope you will join us, but ask that you please be seated upon arrival. Standing in the hallways is against fire regulations and sometimes creates distractions. Thank you, in advance, for your support.
