Today was an exciting day for our Summer Boost Camp students! The Save the Children National Team chose Gilmer County to create a commercial for Summer Boost. Our students were videoed and photographed throughout the day by our guest film crew. The commercial will be created from today's footage and posted on YouTube. We will let you know when the commercial is available. Great things are happening at Wild, Wonderful West Virginia Summer Boost Camp 2022, and LOTS of people are about to find out. Congratulations to our "student stars." We are very, very proud of all of you!

We are continuing to enjoy lots of exciting adventures at Wild, Wonderful, West Virginia Summer Boost. Our students enjoy starting each morning with a Campfire Circle, rotating as a state symbol group through math, reading and healthy choices, and then teambuilding with their color group before lunch. Lots of special guests have joined us at Summer Boost, and we have taken trips on Fantastic Fridays to Cedar Creek and Bulltown Historical Village.

Parents and Guardians of GCES Students: Throughout the school year, our lost and found has acquired many articles of clothing. We have routinely sent students to our lost and found to check for lost items, but we need your help. If you suspect that your child has left jackets or sweatshirts at school, please feel free to stop by and check the lost and found. Items not claimed by the end of the school year may be washed and placed in our closet to provide students who need these types of items.
