F.R.E.S.H at GMES

  •  

    As in past years, GMES continues to offer various after school clubs for 3rd, 4th and 5th graders.  The following clubs share the mindset of the F.R.E.S.H. (Fauquier Reaches for Excellence in School Health) program.  These clubs will be sponsored through a FRESH grant again this year.  Please consider signing your child up for one of these clubs as we continue to reach for excellence in school health here in Fauquier County and at GMES.  Club space is limited.  A note will be sent home to show which club your child was chosen to participate in and a reminder of the start date.  Clubs run for 8 weeks. 

     

    The clubs being offered this fall are:
