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.
