This week ahead we are hosting the Scholastic Book Fair at GEMS! Your student will have the opportunity to check it out at various scheduled times throughout the week.

On Wednesday evening, the Kindergarten - 4th grades will have their Celebration of Learning from 6:00pm - 7:30pm. On Thursday evening, the 5th - 8th grades will have their Celebration of Learning from 6:00pm - 7:30pm. We hope you all can come honor the work of our students from Trimester 1.

The book fair will also be open during these evening events. There will also be a resource fair during the Celebration of Learning that will have food items, coats, and pajamas you can browse and take home. If you are interested to volunteer at the resource fair, please contact the school office.

The GEMS annual pajama drive is in full swing! The class or crew that brings in the most pajamas will earn hot chocolate and cookies!

Stay warm and have a great week!
