3. Patrols 
Grant Kimbrough
Patrols is a student organization, sponsored by Coach Kimbrough that is open for applications to 4th Graders for active membership in their 5th Grade year. Patrols are students who exhibit leadership skills, trustworthiness, and school pride. The main role of student patrols at GFES is to insure the safety of fellow students while promoting leadership skills and building positive role models for younger students to look up to. Patrols accomplish this by facilitating arrival and dismissal duties at the beginning and end of the day, monitoring areas of the school, and assisting teachers and staff in the functions of the school in any way possible.
