GES Title I Family Engagement Projects

November is National Family Engagement Month

This year we are giving the "Gift of Reading" during National Family Engagement month. Ornaments are sent home with each students. GES families are encouraged to read their favorite holiday book together and complete the ornament and return it to school. A tree will be decorated with the ornaments as a reminder that being "present" in your child's education is a "gift". We know the time spent together as a family working on this project is time well spent. Your children are so proud to show off their contribution. A photo of the completed tree will be posted to this page or Title I would like to encourage you to stop by the school and come in to see if for yourself!
Thank you for participating in Title I!
