Red Ribbon Week was great fun at GES!

Red Ribbon Week is an annual campaign sponsored by the National Family Partnership to create awareness to their mission of supporting families and communities in nurturing the full potential of healthy, drug-free youth. Greenwood Elementary has planned themed days throughout the week to bring attention to Red Ribbon Week’s drug-free message.

The right to request info about your child's teacher

As a parent in a Title I school, ESSA (Every Student Succeeds Act) allows you to request information about your child’s teacher. Every school system that receives Title I funds must ensure that all teachers were highly qualified. Continual and constant communications between educators, parents, and the community should always be an integral component of the school program. The reform of this law gives you the right to ask for and receive information about the professional qualifications of your child’s classroom teacher
