Congratulations to our G.F.E.S. Honors Chorus Students!
The North Carolina Elementary Honors Chorus event was held in Winston-Salem, N.C. on November 8th and 9th. Six students from each school across North Carolina are eligible to audition and almost 550 audtioned for the chorus this year. Two hundred were selected by the judges to participate and these students worked with their music teachers to learn challenging music in preparation for the event. Four Granite Falls Elementary students were selected for this elite group of singers. We are very proud of Sarah Arnold, Karmah Clarke, Heather Deal, and Adam Storie. Way to go! We are also very proud of our music/chorus teacher, Mrs. Andrea Evans. She always does a great job with our students and we are blessed to have her at our school!
G.F.E.S. Inaugural Blood Drive was a Success!
Thank you to everyone who came out and supported our first blood drive!
We had 74 people who presented to donate, with 29 being first timers, and the Red Cross collected 68 productive units of blood. They were very pleased with our contribution! Thank you again to the donors, volunteers, staff, and students for making our first drive so successful!
G.F.E.S. Participates in the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge!
Our school recently participated in the Ice Bucket Challenge to raise money for ALS research. The students were able to donate money and have their names put in a drawing. The four students whose names were drawn poured ice water on our principal, Mr. Chris Greene. Our school raised over $300 for this worthy cause.
