GSB recently hosted an all school event called NED’s Mindset Mission. We trust your student was encouraged by the show which taught about having a positive Mindset for learning and life! Mindset Mission yoyos are still available for purchase to support the free show and message. If your student has already purchased a yoyo, here is an important link to help them get off to a good start with proper string length adjustment - https://www.thenedshows.com/string-adjusting . Additionally, here are a couple of our favorite follow up home resources from the Mindset Mission website. You may want to use these with your child as they are designed to go hand in hand with the program.

Educating together!

Bike rodeo is right around the corner! We are excited for k-3 to practice their safe riding skills through the course that our amazing Bus Drivers have designed. 3rd graders will even have the opportunity to try out an off course, trail ride with a special volunteer and Mr. Sal! Don’t forget to have your guardian fill out the google form that allows you to do this that was sent home, if you are a 3rd grade. May 26th will be a great day and if you would like to volunteer please contact Ms. Erin, firstname.lastname@example.org
Kids Being Kids Day for 6th, 7th, and 8th grade! As we’re wrapping up the year, we want to bring back some childhood experiences for our older students as well as strengthening our school community with students and staff alike. We will get messy outdoors while playing field games, tie-dying, slime making, splatter painting, animal snuggling, walking over to Shell Middens, and more! We ask that all of the students involved wear clothes that can get dirty as we’re bound to make a mess and have tons of fun! - 6/7th grade (including Ms. Jen’s 5th graders) on May 24th - 8th grade on May 31st

The GSB PTO, in collaboration with Coastal Rivers Conservation trust, hosted a core of volunteers on May 6 for Campus Cleanup Day. Parents, teachers and administrators pitched in on many chores and tasks. The playground dragon got a fresh coat of paint in honor of its 10th birthday coming up in August. Volunteers battled bittersweet at the GSB backyard trailhead where there are plans to make sit spots in an amphitheater arrangement. The garden, along with its greenhouse, now has a critter fence to keep produce safe for harvest for Twin Villages Food Bank. Lastly, a big thank you to CRCT’s Brad Weigel who designed and built a “troll bridge” to help “the goats” cross from the garden to the ball field. The GSB PTO is able to sponsor and organize Campus Cleanup Days because of the Mountain Film Festival. The community sponsor list includes: Coastal Rivers Conservation Trust, F. Lilly Design-Build, Friends of GSB, Reny’s, Mexicali Blues, The First National Bank, Barn Door Baking Co., Norumbega Oyster Company, Rising Tide Food Coop, Oxbow Brewery, Dr. Anne Jacobs, SeVende, and Shuck Station Raw Bar. GSB PTO encourages all community members to take advantage of the greenspace around the school.
