HAPPY HOLIDAYS FROM GES AND THE 6th GRADE SINGING SANTAS!
GES kindergarten through grade 5 students enjoyed Body Venture, a 45-50 foot walk through exhibit sponsored by the Kansas Department of Education, Child Nutrition and Wellness Division. This exhibit represents the human body and promotes learning the skills for making choices for a healthy lifestyle. Thanks to Tabitha Clark, our school nurse, and our district wellness committee for taking on this big project and making this unique educational program possible for our students.
