On Board Summer 2020

Congratulations on Another Fantastic School Year

While it feels strange to be finishing the 2019-2020 school year from afar (or on Zoom!), we still wanted to pass along congratulations to all our families on the completion of another fantastic year. Though our physical time together was cut short, our Board of Directors adapted quickly and was able to accomplish what ended up being a banner year for our group — please take time to review these achievements below.

This summer, you can stay connected through the GCS website and all our social media platforms, including Facebook, InstagramTwitter, and LinkedIn. While you can always check out important dates on the GCS Online Calendar, please make sure to mark these tentative first 2020-2021 school year dates down now:

  • Family Orientation, Thursday, September 3, 2020
  • First day of classes, Tuesday, September 8, 2020

This On Board newsletter is bittersweet for me, as it marks the end of my term on the Board of Directors. When I reflect on the work our unit did during my tenure, I’m humbled that I was lucky enough to be a part of such a dedicated, hard-working, and inspirational group of people. I can’t thank the school, the staff, the families, and my fellow board members enough for their guidance, support, and — most of all — friendship over the past four years. I am thrilled to introduce Cindi Lane-Hand as the newest Board President. She brings a wealth of experience to this group and I can’t wait to applaud the Board’s next milestones under her lead.

Have a Wonderful Summer,

Kate Ferriola


President, GCS Board of Directors
