Now that August is upon us, it is time to get ready for the return to school.
A large majority of our GES families have taken care of the student registration process. For those that still have to do so, simply login into your teacherease account, click on 'Miscellaneous' at the top of the page and then 'Online Registration'. Feel free to contact the office at (618)523-4253 with questions.
Just a reminder that the school office is open from 7:30-4:00 every weekday for families that need to drop off paperwork or pay fees.

If you have not already downloaded the new district app to your cell phone, you will want to do that before the start of the school year.
