GHR School Supply list

Please review the attached recommended school supplies for our upcoming school year! GHR Supply List 2022 - Google Docs.pdf 

GHR Summer reading 

Our goal is for you to continue growing your reading brain all summer long with books of choice. You have MANY options on how you can participate in summer reading this year. All will be accepted and rewarded upon return to school in the fall. Please select the option(s) that works best for you and your family. I have attached resources for you below. 

  • Booth & Dimock Summer Reading Program (
  • Participation in activities in the GHR Summer Reading Google Classroom (join code: 4tpj6bt)
  • Incoming Grade 3- CGS reading log and reading challenge (hard copy posted in the GHR Summer Reading Google Classroom)

If you need books, you can also access our Little Free Library by the gym lobby entrance which will be updated with new books all summer long.

Next week, please expect a mailing with my formal welcome letter, a hard copy of the supply list, and a hard copy of the school calendar. If any questions arise as we get closer to the start of the school year, please email or call anytime. J

I look forward to seeing you,


Jen DeRagon
