Kentucky Kids Day!!!!

Tomorrow we celebrate Kentucky Kids Day at GSE!

Kentucky PTA Kids’ Day

Kentucky PTA Kids’ Day was established in 1985 to set aside one day just for our students. The goal is to send the message to each child that he or she is a special and unique individual who is respected and loved. Kentucky PTA Kids’ Day also serves as a day to make the public aware of the educational and personal needs of children and the role they play as our most important natural resource.

I am special, you will see!
Kentucky PTA made this day for me!
We’re special kids from a special state!
It’s our special day, so let’s celebrate!
So let’s get together and cheer real loud!
We’re Kentucky kids and very proud!
Let’s join hands in unity
To show how special we can be!



September Box Tops Competition – As of Friday(9/4)  morning, Ms Salsman’s class was in the lead in sending in the most box tops. Keep sending in those box tops with your child’s classroom teacher’s name on them.

Don’t forget to keep sending in those plastic lids! We will continue collecting them for our playground benches!

Join the PTA! – To those who have already joined the PTA – Thank You!
