Thank You To our Spruce Up Team!

A Message From the Director:

Dear GCS Families,

I hope you have had the chance to admire all of the amazing work that was done on our school grounds this past weekend.  It is always a telltale sign when you can smell the fresh aroma of bark mulch walking through the parking lot.   We had quite an ambitious group of board, staff, families, alumni, and student volunteers, all pitching in together to accomplish great things for GCS.  I am amazed at the projects this mighty group of volunteers were able to complete!  Everything from cleaning gardens and mulching beds, to sanding picnic tables and repairing the swing set trellis.

Thank you to the following for all of your efforts:
