Great Kindness Challenge
This week MGES will be participating in the Great Kindness Challenge! The Great Kindness Challenge provides a powerful tool for creating a school culture of acceptance, tolerance, unity and respect. It is important because everyone deserves to learn in a safe, supportive and bully-free environment. Throughout the week students are invited to participate in themed spirit days. Please see a letter from Mrs. Hamilton for more information.
The School Store is open on Tuesday and Wednesday mornings from 8:30-8:45 AM.
Need a great birthday treat for your child's class? How about a MGES School Store Gift Certificate? Fifty cents and one dollar gift certificates are available. Contact Marla Kepniss with any questions: firstname.lastname@example.org
Wawa Hoagie Sale
The 5th grade class is selling Wawa hoagie coupons. They make great gifts for college kids, sports coaches & anyone! Each coupon costs $4.00 and is good for one Shorti Hoagie (retail is $4.95). This is a savings for you while supporting the 5th grade class trip!
Payment may be made in cash or a check made payable to MGES PTO, please indicate "Hoagie Sale" on your check or envelope. Please note there is a $15 fee is applied to returned checks.
For more info, please contact: Marla Kepniss (email@example.com or 267-471-8168).
Crayola ColorCycle Program
UPDATE: MGES has collected 30 pounds of spent markers for the Crayola ColorCycle program so far!!! That is 30 pounds of markers that will not end up in landfills, but will be recycled into construction materials or used to generate electricity. Great job MGES and Girl Scout Troop 71 for making a difference!
Remember, any marker can be ColorCycled, not just Crayola. Spent markers can be collected from home and the classroom. Lets see if we can collect at another 30 pounds before the end of the year. Keep color cycling!
