Falcon Flyer: Science Olympiad team, Scoop and a Show


"At the end of the day, the most overwhelming key to a child's success is the positive involvement of parents." -Jane Tull

This coming week is BUSY! Tomorrow night we have the informative Curriculum Night and 1st PTA meeting of the year for ALL parents. Friday night let's migrate back to school at 6pm for our family fun event, A Scoop & a Show. We are READY! 

Calling all Inquisitive 4th & 5th Graders...

After a great success last year, GHE parents are continuing the journey to the Science Olympiad tournament this year. If your child likes to work with other Falcons in small teams to learn and solve challenging science problems, while having fun, this is the club for them! If you are interested in learning more, please e-mail parent Ranjani Asaigoli by Mon., Sep 30th. This team will need at least one parent/guardian willing to commit to coaching one of the 19 events. Each event consists of one science problem. The final tournament is late March.

For more information about Science Olympiad, visit the website.


And the movie is...The Secret Life of Pets 2

Please join GHE under the stars for the 1st Annual Outdoor Movie Night and Ice Cream Social: A Scoop and a Show. We are excited to see your GHE family at this community-building PTA event.

The deadline for pre-ordering ice cream/Italian ice has passed. Ice cream ONLY will be available for purchase at event for $2. 

To volunteer, please sign up online. Thank you to our incredible Coach G for setting up this event and the teachers who will be scooping. Please bring lawn chairs and/or blankets for seating.

LAST CALL! You still have until this Friday, Sept. 20 to go online and  order your required classroom resources, buy spirit wear, join the Celebration Book Club, order a Birthday Blast and become a member of the PTA.
