Gove has a Successful Meet and Greet Event

Special to The Sun/GES
Parents sign in to receive their child’s assigned teachers and classrooms at Gove Elementary’s Meet and Greet event. 600 parents signed in, making the event a huge success.

Gove Elementary’s first event of the school year, “Meet and Greet,” was a huge success thanks to the support of their entire Gove family. With over 600 parents that signed in, the event was well attended by students and parents. Students and parents toured the school and met their teachers. Students had the opportunity to choose books to take home and were given two school uniforms. This was possible thanks to Back to Basics, a non-profit organization that provides over 13,000 new school uniforms to needy children at the beginning of each school year. Kudos to Ms. Amezquita for submitting the request, Ms. Michno for picking up the uniforms, and ALL the staff and student alumni volunteers that assisted with the distribution of approximately 900 uniforms.

As Gove begins this school year, school officials ask that parents continue to assist them by encouraging their children to attend school regularly and on time (8 a.m. to 2:35 p.m.), abide by school rules, observe the uniform policy, read every night and complete all assigned homework. With your support, the children will succeed!
