GRE is again implementing a school wide community outreach partnership with Welcome Warehouse for the Holiday season.? The “Adopt A Family” program provides help for nearly 200 families who are in temporary need in the Dublin School System (referred by school guidance counselors).? GRE will be adopting 10 of these families during this holiday season. All students will be wrapping them and will celebrate our community efforts at our Celebration of Giving ceremony on December 19th.

It’s getting cold outside! GRE students LOVE going out for recess. We want them to stay safe and healthy. Please make sure your child leaves for school with outerwear appropriate for the day’s weather. Make a habit of checking the weather forecast and encouraging your child to wear a coat, hat, scarf and gloves on these colder days. Students are welcome to wear shorts while inside, but they MUST wear pants over them for recess during cold temperatures. Students must also bring out a jacket that is appropriate for the temperature.
20 degrees or below with wind chill - all recesses will be indoors
21-25 degrees with wind chill - lunch recess will be indoors, short recess will be outdoors
26 degrees with wind chill and warmer - all recesses will be outdoors
Lastly, it is a good reminder to put your child's name in their respective winter attire. A simple task of putting names in coats and on sweatshirts helps get them back to their owner.

Glacier Ridge students packed supplies for troops overseas on Friday morning. With the donations from Glacier Ridge families, we were able to pack 26 boxes that will be sent to troops in Afghanistan, Kuwait, and Iraq. In addition to items such as toothpaste, hand sanitizer, magazines, candy, playing cards, and other toiletries, students also included personalized cards in the care packages thanking the Veterans. Thank you GRE families for your donations in support of our military and to the PTO for funding the shipping boxes for this special project. Lastly, we appreciate the efforts of Mrs. Gould, GRE’s media specialist, for her leadership and organization of Operation Kids for Troops!
The Veterans Day Project will begin on Monday, October 28th through Wednesday, November 7th.
Families are asked to bring in supplies to support our troops serving overseas. Boxes will be on the stage in order to collect: toothpaste, toothbrushes, decks of cards, hand sanitizers, magazines, hard candy, powdered drink mix, chap-stick, baby wipes, and small toys such as balls and yo-yos.
Also, if you have a family member currently serving overseas, we would like to send them a care package. Please send their name and APO address to Mrs. Gould in the library or email her at firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you for supporting our troops!
