Welcome back GHE family and Hello to 2020! We hope you had a nice Winter break and your new year is filled with love, laughter, health, happiness and peace.

Congratulations to the winners and all of our talented Falcon artists who entered. If  you'd like to order a yearbook, visit the Treering website where you can personalize two pages. All yearbook orders are due by April 9, 2020, for in-school delivery.

AIG Testing Nomination Deadline is JAN. 17

Attention 4th and 5th grade parents: The nomination window for Spring AIG testing will close on January 17th. AIG is for students who are working above grade level and who need an additional challenge. Please send nominations to Ms. Goodman or Mrs. Cossa.


  • 5:30 - 6:00 pm: Join us for our winter PTA General Meeting where we'll introduce our newest PTA Board members, vote on a proposed budget amendment, and share more details on upcoming events like Spring Carnival and the new STEAM (Science, Technology Engineering, Arts and Math) Night.  
  • 6:00 - 7:30 pm: After the PTA meeting, stay for our annual Family Bingo Night. Principal Walker will be our bingo caller and there are tons of prizes with many chances to win. We have a limited number of Bingo Cards available so buy yours ahead of time.


The holidays are OVER. It's mid-winter. The offspring may have drove you a little insane over that extra long two-week break. Don’t you think it’s time that you took a single night off just FOR YOU?! Adult conversation! Delicious food & drinks! And NO ONE will even MENTION the word “Lego”! Consider yourself invited!

Please join us on Thursday, Jan. 30 at Hickory Tavern in Parkside Town Commons, Cary, from 6-9pm for a fun moms night out. As a special added bonus, Hickory Tavern has offered to give back 10% to GHE. Sounds like a win-win. See you there!

(Dads, your night is coming, too.)
