The staff of GES invites grades 1-5 students and families to a reverse parade on the final day of the school year, Wednesday, June 17. The event rain date is Thursday, June 18.
This will be an opportunity for all of us to come together, see one another one last time, and celebrate the year before the start of summer.
The schedule for the reverse parade is as follows:
- Gr. 1 – 10:00
- Gr. 2 – 10:25
- Gr. 3 – 10:50
- Gr. 4 – 11:15
- Gr. 5 – 11:40
During your child’s time slot you can drive through the school parking lot and wave, cheer and honk to the GES staff. We encourage decorating your car for the occasion and displaying your child’s name so we can see who is coming.
A few parents have asked if the parade could be an opportunity to give a staff member a gift. While that is very generous, I ask that you do not do so during the parade. We simply do not want to bring that many people into close proximity to one another. If you have a gift you would like to drop off, you can do so at GES the day before the parade, Tuesday, June 16 between 8:30 and 11:00 a.m. We will make sure to give the gifts to staff members before the parade.
