Fifth Grade World Faire

On Wednesday, December 17th, all GES classes attended the World Faire - a truly phenomenal experience!
From Mrs. Cosby - The World Faire began as a very small idea last year that evolved into this spectacular “student lead” adventure. Students are able to showcase their overall understanding of Global Explorations through the use of technology, display boards, hands-on activities, foods, and a variety of other mediums. This is their opportunity to become the teachers and to show their mastery of many skills learned over the past months about this world. It is exciting and engaging and to say that I am proud does not even begin to go far enough. They collaborate and communicate, it is cross-curricular, they brainstorm, design, create, problem solve, and delve very deep into their own learning of content. Well-done ladies and gentlemen!

The Blizzard of 2014

The GES winter performance, The Blizzard of 2014, was truly a masterpiece. Kudos to our music teacher, Kim Watts, who wrote and directed the play. It featured second through fifth graders as snowflakes, students, teachers, and janitors worried they might be stuck in school over Winter Break. Thanks to our Bus Drives and the “underground cave,” students (and teachers) were spared. What a fantastic performance by our fantastic students!!
