Flu Shot Make-Ups

When the flu clinic was held at GRE on October 10 through CareDox, unforunatey the nurses ran out of time and all students who signed up did not receive a flu shot, which was communicated to families that afternoon.  We have a list of students who did not receive a flu shot on that date, and Glacier Ridge has received the date of November 1st for make-ups.

On November 1st, all students who originally signed up but did not receive a flu shot will receive it at school between 9:45am-2:00pm.  If you had originally signed your student up and you would now like to opt your child out of the November 1st date, please call or email Mrs. Butterfield in the clinic at or 614-733-0012.

Multicultural Family Night - Friday, November 9

It’s that time of the year when we celebrate the diversity of cultures that makes GRE one of a "kind". This year's theme is "Unity in Diversity".  We would love for the parents and students of GRE to celebrate this event by showcasing a culture through food, attire, displays, presentations or performances.

Yearbook Art Cover
Each year, students in all grades get the opportunity to submit a design for the yearbook. Of the entries, one is selected for the front cover. However, there also submissions that are printed on the back cover, as well as one on every class page. We attempt to put as many submissions in the yearbook as possible. The contest kicks off on Tuesday, October 23rd. Your child will get more information in their art class (or classroom for kindergartners). The deadline for yearbook cover submissions is Friday, November 2nd.  
T-shirts for Students

As you know, our motto is Choose Kind.  This year, one of our school goals is to foster inclusion and a sense of belonging among students.  The PTO would like to purchase shirts for all students with the phrase: Start with hello > Find a connection > Create a friendship.  Various activities will be implemented throughout the year to foster inclusion.  Students will have the opportunity to wear their shirts during our inclusion events.  If you would like to provide the teacher with your child’s shirt size, please do so by Friday, Oct. 19.  Otherwise, the teacher will obtain the shirt size from the child.  

3rd Grade State Testing - Oct. 24 & 25
All third grade students will be taking the Ohio State Test in English Language Arts on October 24th and October 25th. Testing will begin at 9:30 a.m. and should be concluded by 11:30 a.m. both mornings. As a parent, the best thing you can do to prepare is to ensure that your child has a good night’s sleep and then a healthy breakfast the morning of testing. Also, please try to avoid appointments those mornings.
