GE Massey Elementary is taking part in the North Carolina Department of Public Instruction "Give Five-Read Five" campaign! We are asking parents, business leaders and community members to donate new or gently-used books. Our goal is to collect enough books for every child to have five books to take home with them before the summer break. With your help, we can encourage students to keep reading during the critical summer months so they will be ready to learn and succeed when they return to school this fall. We have a donation bin located in the front office of the school to collect books for the book drive. The GE Massey Elementary book drive will conclude Friday, May 22nd. You can call the school at (704)735-2322 if you have questions or need additional information. Thank you for your partnership and support!


 
The Healthy Hunger Kids Free Act requires Child Nutrition programs to increase lunch prices each year.   Last night, the Board of Education approved a 10 cent increase in lunch prices for the 2015-2016 school year.  This means that next year Elementary lunches will be $2.55 and Middle/High lunches will be $2.65.   Reduced price lunch will remain at 40 cent for all levels.   Adult/Guest price lunches will remain at $3.50.

The students of G.E. Massey Elementary honored the nation’s veterans on Tuesday. Students from Pre-K to third grade stood at attention with their hands over their hearts through the Pledge of Allegiance and during an acapella rendition of the National Anthem, sung by members of the Lincolnton High School Choir. Among the veterans that were present for the ceremony were commandant of the Marine Corps League and chaplain for the Vietnam Veterans, Monica Lockwood, several Vietnam War Veterans, a Gulf War veteran, a Korean War veteran and a 92-year-old World War II veteran. Principal Marty Helton emceed the event.
“I want to begin by thanking our veterans,” Helton said, addressing the students. “We want to thank them for their service to our country, which allows us the freedom that we enjoy and we hope that we never take those freedoms for granted. As you get older, you will learn that there are countries that do not have the same freedoms.”
At the end of the program, teacher Amy Savage presented a book to the veterans that contained letters from the students. In the letters, the children thanked the veterans for their courage and bravery. Vietnam veteran Ed House accepted the book on behalf of all veterans.
“A lot of our students prepared some thank-you letters and pictures,” Savage said. “In preparing for this, I found something that I thought was quite fitting. It said a veteran is someone who at one point in his or her life wrote a blank check to the United States of America for the amount of up to and including my life. For this, we thank (them).”
The ceremony was concluded with the traditional three-volley gun salute in honor of all fallen soldiers, with House playing “Taps.”

Help the Environment and Your School
Help G.E. Massey and the environment by recycling your unwanted textiles, which includes clothing, shoes, linens, curtains, coats, and more in any condition, by placing them in the textile recycle bin located in front of the school. Each year, 13.1 million tons of textile waste is generated in the US. This material generates over 28 million pounds of CO2 each year. For every 490 pounds of textiles the school collects, we will receive money to spend on educational needs.
