Dear GCS Families,

We are excited to share upcoming April events with you! Next week we are celebrating NAEYC’s Week of the Young Child, spreading the word about the importance of early childhood education, and celebrating children, families, and those who work with them! We also have an amazing event for GCS Families over Spring Break! To keep you in the loop, we are sharing some news so you can SAVE THE DATES for these special events!


1)   Solar Eclipse 2024 – Monday, April 8th from 2:15 to 4:40 PM

To kick off our Week of the Young Child celebration at GCS, Mother Nature has an exciting event for us! Teachers will coordinate an adult volunteer or two in the classrooms to permit peeking in small groups at the solar eclipse safely. GCS will provide solar glasses* for children in class that afternoon. Parents/guardians must sign the permission form below to permit their child to view the eclipse with adult supervision.



2)   GCS Apparel Sale – Monday – Friday, April 8th – 12th
