Good evening Bulldog Country  With a lack of sunshine and temperatures hovering around 20 degrees all day today, the country roads are still largely ice covered.  Considering our buses travel these roads for a majority of their routes, we simply cannot risk it.  As a result Tuesday, January 31, has been declared a Traditional Snow Day at GES.  Stay safe Bulldog Country.

Unfortunately, Old Man Winter decided to make a sneak attack at just the wrong time. As a result, we have a thin layer of mixed precipitation covering the roads with more forecast to fall through the 9:00 hour. As a result of the questionable road conditions, today has been declared a Snow Day. This will be a traditional Snow Day. Due to only having 24 hours notice on this weather system, we simply did not have enough time to prepare for an E-Learning Day.

Good evening Bulldog Country 😊 This News Channel 60 weather update is sponsored by Swiss Miss Hot Chocolate. Whether you are warm and cozy at home waiting for the snow to start falling or braving the lines at the grocery store, the winter season calls for some Swiss Miss Hot Chocolate. While Mother Nature has yet to start churning out winter precipitation, the current forecast combined with the desire to give parents some time to plan, has resulted in tomorrow being declared a Snow Day. While we will NOT have in person learning tomorrow, we will have an E-Learning Day. Parents are asked to check their email for more information.

Germantown Elementary is looking to hire a forward thinking third grade teacher who is passionate about education and strives to make learning meaningful and fun for the students. We anticipate the incoming third grade class will have 29 students, thus we will have 2 sections of third grade for the 2023-24 school year. This position is for the second section of third grade. Now is an exciting time to join our Bulldog family as we are growing. We started a new Transitional Kindergarten Program this year, and we are in the midst of preparing for a major construction project. In the months to come we will break ground for an addition that when completed will include 2 early childhood classrooms and a gym. This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to get a front row seat for all the excitement to come. If you desire to work in a district with a family atmosphere that embraces creativity and a team approach, this is the job for you. If this isn’t enough to peak your interest, our faculty/staff is given the freedom to dress casually every day of the school year. We work hard, have fun, and dress comfortably at GES. Interested candidates are asked to send a cover letter, resume, and letters of recommendation to Robin Becker at rbecker@ges60.org or 401 Walnut Street, PO Box 400, Germantown, IL, 62245. Interviews will begin immediately and continue until the position is filled.
