It’s that time of year again when we get to help other families in our Hudsonville area!!!  We are asking all of our GT families to consider donating non-perishable food items and they will all be given to Love Inc. in Hudsonville.  We start Friday Nov. 2 and we will collect until Friday Nov. 16 at noon 🙂 The class that brings in the most items will be given a thank you and traveling to the Hudsonville Bowling Lanes for a bowling party!!!! Thanks for your help.

4th and 5th grade Field Day

Just a reminder that the 4th and 5th gr. field day is coming up on June 7 with a rain date of June 8.  If your child ordered a field day t-shirt, it will be coming home on Monday June 6!

Please have your child dress for the weather (with sunscreen) and if they take their own water bottle, they are responsible for it.
