School Messenger from Mrs. Graf

October 29, 2018  Week 14

School Messenger


Good afternoon Explorers,

This is Principal Graf with your weekly update.  It’s week 14 of school. Interims will be sent home next week on November 5, 2018.  

PTA Corner:

Membership Drive:  PTA will be sending out information on how you can join the PTA and support EGES soon!


This Week:

  • Field Trips:  Much of the parent input at the end of last year was about field trips.  Each grade level will be taking field trips this year. Payments must be made in order to secure charter buses and reservations to the wonderful sites for visits.  If down-payments cannot be made, the field trip will be cancelled, as the tour company requires a down payment for the beach and Washington DC trips.

  • 11/5: Quarter 2 Interim
  • 11/6: 2 Hour Delay: Get out and Vote!
