Pink Day: Lunch Time Pictures

Braving the cold to display their pink shirts!

Beautiful mountain view from the intermediate adventure playground.

Grade 7 students swinging around.

Grade 5 students playing grounders.
Despite the cold weather the students enjoyed the outdoors at lunch today.

I got into most classes today and I saw some great things happening.  Ms. Duncan's class sang me two French songs, which were really well done.  Ms. Moul's students read to me and Mr. Detwiller's Division 2 students did some amazing posters for Anti-Bullying Day.  I worked with both K classes in the gym and spent time in the Library with Ms. Taylor's class, working on a tracking assignment.

GES is an awesome school and I feel blessed to be part of our school community.  The staff, students and parents make everyday rewarding for me.  Thank you for all that you do for our school community.
