A big THANK YOU to all students and staff who participated in our district-wide Hunger Drive. GHES collected over 800 items and 40 boxes to assist Fort Mill families. In our competition between boys vs. girls, the GIRLS won with 569 items while the boys collected 297 items! Mr. Burris had to dress up like a girl!  Looks like Mrs. Brewer is off the hook on this one!

International Walk to School Day was a success!  GHES students walked a total of 205 miles at school during the week of Oct. 6-9.  Students learned the importance of practicing safe pedestrian guidelines.  Students were paired up with another student in their class and used a partner strap to walk and talk.  Every time the partner group completed a lap on our school’s track, they were given a new question/topic to talk about for the next lap.  These gave students the opportunity to get to know one another and cooperate with a classmate.  Attached is a picture of a first grade class participating in International Walk to/at School week.

A Visit from Congressman Mick Mulvaney
Dear Parents,

What an exciting day we had today.  We changed our schedule around and had a special visitor- Congressman Mick Mulvaney! The congressman took time out of his busy schedule to talk to our first grade classes about his job as a leader and how laws are made. The children were mostly fascinated by all of the different places he has been able to visit in his career. CN2 will be reporting briefly on his visit (not sure which day though)  This was a part of our social studies unit on Community. Our standards state that students need to know about authority figures and leaders in the community and how they make/enforce laws which is a basic function of government. We started by looking at leaders in our classroom and school community and am now  branching out. We are planning on having additional speakers in the near future such as York County Councilman Michael Johnson, Senator Wes Hayes, and hopefully the mayor of Tega Cay.
