Just before Thanksgiving break, the GCES attendance team surprised our students with a treat! Our students enjoyed popcorn, pretzels, candy, and watched Charlie Brown's Thanksgiving. These are the kind of surprises we like to give our students just for being here!

It has been a very exciting week at Gilmer Elementary. To celebrate Attendance Awareness Month students were encouraged to take part in a fun attendance themed spirit week. We enjoyed seeing the students participate! On Thursday, students were treated to a snow cone during their recess provided by Communities In Schools Liaison, Julie Busby, Psychosocial Program Coordinator, Tracy Arden, and Truancy Diversion Interventionist, Mischell Workman. The students were very appreciative and excited. One student said, "This is the best day ever!" On Friday, students were given a refrigerator magnet with attendance reminders to take home to share with their families. Although Attendance Awareness Month is only in September, attendance awareness is important every day. Please continue to support your students' success by promoting excellent attendance, because who knows when the next surprise treat might be!
