Good afternoon.  Spent a little time watching our boys play soccer and our girls playing field hockey; couldn’t think of a better way to spend such a nice day!

The PTA’s free movie night will start at 7:00 or so; it is getting darker earlier so they decided to begin earlier.  So if you want a good spot on the Village Field, better get there at 6:30!

Thanks to the Bourgeois Family, GMS will once again help make Laconia’s PumpkinFest an awesome event!  They have generously donated 350 pumpkins so each of our students will have one to carve to put on display.

In light of recent events, I have attached a document regarding “emergency guidelines” that you should be made aware.  Please go over these (with your child, too) so that in the case of emergency, you know what is expected to occur.  Parts of this, I have shared in a previous update.

From the “Middle Years.”  Fun Historical Facts*  Want to spark your middle grader’s interest in history?  She could look in library books or online to find unusual stories about people she studies.  Example:  Before the Civil War, Harriet Tubman once escaped capture by pretending to chase a flock of chickens.

Next Week’s Events:

  • Monday = Gilford/Gilmanton School Board Meeting at GHS (6:00)

  • Tuesday = Gilford PTA Meeting at GES (6:30)

  • Wednesday = Early Release (12:20)

Thank you and have a nice weekend.
