Hello GES Parents!!!
SAC, PTO, and GES faculty and staff have an exciting event planned for you on February 27th. SAC and PTO members have joined together to ensure that our students are receiving all the resources needed to be successful on state testing. Please come and join us to learn how to help your child score high on the FSA!!! Students will be learning techniques and strategies to used when testing, while you all will be discussing how to use the FSA portal with Mr. Travis Jones, SAC Chairman. We will start at 5:00 and end at 7:00. Parents and students will be served pizza as we embark on this great moment in time. GES is only as good as their parents, students, teachers, administration and District Board of Education. We have the support of everyone, so parents come out and let the world know that we have the best students in the nation. See you soon!!!

Parents Taking an Initiative (P.T.I.) at GES
The faculty and staff of Greenville Elementary are proud to have parents who are taking the initiative to support our students. It is a known fact that it takes a village to raise a child, therefore we welcome parents, community members, and partners in education to assist in mentoring and volunteering in the classroom. Mrs. Linton Hart is our Parent Coordinator for GES and is looking forward to working with you. Please ask for Ms. Talecia Solomon who will assist in keeping record of the hours that you spend in assisting our students. Please remember that all volunteers must be approved and screened by the district office.
There is no responsibility more important than the education of our children. In order for the students of Greenville to be successful, it will take the parents, teachers, community members, and partners in education working together. With this in mind, Greenville faculty and staff has developed a program for parents and volunteers entitled "Parents taking an Initiative (PTI)". This program will recognize parents as they assist our students in academics. The following examples are ways parents can earn points: a)volunteering in class, b)coming to parent conferences, c)coming to P.T.O. meetings, d) having lunch with their child or mentee, e)helping with school events such as IMAGE celebrations, f)fundraisers, g)signing student work, h)mentoring, i)signing progress reports, and j)signing reports cards. Parents may progress from one level to the other by the number of points they obtained by the end of each nine weeks.
1) Level 1= Name on the Parent Board at School (200 pts.)
2) Level 2 = Bronze Certificate, name on Parent Board (400 pts.)
3) Level 3 = Silver Certificate, name and picture (with child) on Parent Board (600 pts)
4) Level 4 = Gold Certificate (800 pts.) Name and picture in the newspaper with the Superintendent.
GES will be closed Friday, Sept. 8th
