A Long History Rooted in our Community
For more than seven decades, Groton Community School has welcomed and served young children and their families from Groton and surrounding communities. From its founding, the school’s mission has been to provide the most positive first school experience for children and their families.
At the same time, our dedicated teachers are committed to instilling in our children the values of kindness and caring for others, community awareness, and good citizenship. Fostering kindness and a love of learning has enabled scores of young people to blossom into future leaders — leaders who are leaving a legacy of caring and excellence through involvement in their communities. From nurses to business owners, community leaders to college students, GCS alumni are demonstrating the lasting importance that their Early Childhood experience has had on their lives.
You have the opportunity to help us build an even stronger community of support to sustain and boost all that is exceptional about GCS. You can help set the stage for the next 70 years of learning and leadership with your gift to the GCS annual fund today. There has never been a better time for you to start giving to the GCS Annual Fund!
The truth is that tuition alone does not cover the cost of a GCS education. For the past 70 years, community partners have stepped forward to invest in the future of our young people. We are tremendously grateful for all of our donors – from the earliest donors who helped purchase our first playground equipment in the 1940’s to the loyal annual fund supporters of today. We also know that to inspire the next generation, we need to broaden this base of support.
We hope you will help us by making your gift to this year’s fund today. Thank you, in advance, for your generous support.
