A great group of Great Falls parents joined Art Teacher Mrs. Rimkunas, Assistant Principal Becky Fortier and the "Parent Connection" group to create a clay bowl that will be used in the Great Falls silent auction at Movie Night on Friday, December 12th. All K-5 students will be participating in the Empty Bowl Project and this fun evening was the parent’s chance to also make a contribution while having fun. The silent auction will raise funds to support student events, such as the assemblies and family nights, which take place at Great Falls.

Great Falls Elementary School
Welcomes Families Back to School
On a picture perfect evening in Gorham, families gathered at Great Falls Elementary School for a family picnic. Staff, students, and families brought their baskets and blankets and joined together in the Great Falls garden area. Following the picnic, the fun moved to the playground where families caught up with old friends while meeting some new ones. It was a wonderful way to celebrate the start of the school year.
