7TH ANNUAL
GWCS HERITAGE FEAST
TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 21, 2017
10:00 AM - 12:00 PM

The Heritage Feast is an annual GWCS tradition that started back in 2010.   Students, teachers, grandparents, parents, siblings, and alumni all gather in the cafe to enjoy a never ending buffet of foods that celebrate the diversity of our school community.

We are asking families to contribute tasty dishes that reflect their heritage. If you feel that your culinary heritage has no pizzaz, don't worry. You can still join in by bringing your family's favorite dish.  We also need a few parent volunteers to help with setup and cleanup!

b-banner-STUDENT OF THE WEEK.JPG

The Student of the Week this week is  EMILY GRANGER for demonstrating the GWCS value of EXCELLENCE

It is difficult to pick one value to describe Emily, but over the past week she has demonstrated excellence by keeping up with her classwork while at home recovering from surgery.  Emily arranged to Skype into classes so she would minimize the amount of instruction missed and maximize her participation from home.  During her absence from school, she managed to make up all of her math assignments and complete a written project for English class.  In short, she didn't allow recovery from surgery to prevent her from keeping up with her studies and finishing the first grading quarter.  

Check out the 'Student of the Week' bulletin board near Mr. Pereira's classroom. Each week a student is recognized for his or her demonstration of one of the eight GWCS Values.

    PAYMENT INFORMATION:
    Seniors receive information about portrait packages and pricing in the mail - directly from Lifetouch.  Some years Lifetouch includes an appointment time - disregard this time as it does not apply to small schools like GWCS.

    WHAT TO BRING:
    Seniors may bring their portrait clothes to school on a hanger.  Time to change will be provided.  Depending on the poses chosen, some students will only be photographed from the waist up and other will need to keep in mind what pants and shoes they are wearing as well.  Also, bring makeup, hair doodads, jewelry, and any props for the photo.

    ADDITIONAL INFORMATION:

    The Student of the Week this week is  JACK DWYER for demonstrating the GWCS value of EXCELLENCE. 

    If you’re ever feeling really dire,
    Simply go and search out Jack Dwyer.
    Jack’ll have a fun joke
    Cause he’s such a great bloke
    And get you fast out of the mire.  (Why does Snoop Dogg carry an umbrella?)

    When it comes to learning, Jack is king!
    Studying with pals is now his thing.
    If you want to study,
    But need a buddy,
    Consider Jack a Bing! (Even though we really use Google.)

    So here’s to the Student of the Week!
    He embodies the values we seek!
    Excellence is a hard word to rhyme.
    But Jack’s got it all of the time! (Excellence that is!)

    Check out the 'Student of the Week' bulletin board near Mr. Pereira's classroom. Each week a student is recognized for his or her demonstration of one of the eight GWCS Values.

    GWCS VALUES: LEARNING, SERVICE, KINDNESS, EXCELLENCE, RESPONSIBILITY, INVESTMENT, TEAM PLAY, INTELLECTUAL CURIOSITY

    b-banner-COMMUNITY SERVICE.JPG

    SIGN UP FOR STREAM CLEANUP

    On the last Wednesday of each month*, Ms. Kohler will host a Stream Cleanup community service event where students will not only find themselves immersed in a do-gooder feeling but they will actually make a difference!  Students will practice environmentalism by cleaning up toxic trash that hinders our earth.  In addition to the obvious need to get pollutants out of our water, it has been proven that the more we cleanup the less likely people are to litter!   The location may vary each month, but will most likely take place around the Accotink Trail.

    The group will leave GWCS at 3:25 pm and will return to GWCS no later than 4:45 pm for each adventure.  Space is limited to the first 12 students who signup through SignUp Genius each month.  Transportation will be provided for students to and from school.  Students will earn one hour of community service for each event.
     

    • WEAR long pants and sneakers or hiking shoes.
    • BRING a water bottle.
    • WORK GLOVES will be provided.

    Reminder... students are expected to earn at least 30 hours of community service each school year.  Community Service Hours are recorded on student transcripts. 

    If you missed it last month, CLICK HERE to read about September's Cleanup Event.

    *Due to school holidays, some Stream Cleanup events will not be on the last Wednesday of the month, but on the last Wednesday we have school in that month.

    The Student of the Week this week is ZACH THORNHILL for demonstrating the GWCS value of TEAM PLAY. 

    Zach exemplified Team Play during the Senior Essay Writing Retreat.  He significantly contributed to creating a productive and cordial environment. He volunteered for necessary but not necessarily pleasant tasks (cleaning the kitchen after a dinner that required lots of pot, pans, and bowls), provided encouragement to new players while playing Frisbee, and positively acknowledged fellow students when they tried something new, whether it was Frisbee or eating salad.  In general, he helped turn a really good retreat into a great retreat.

    Check out the 'Student of the Week' bulletin board near Mr. Pereira's classroom. Each week a student is recognized for his or her demonstration of one of the eight GWCS Values.

    TAKING STANDARDIZED TESTS...

    The Preliminary SAT (PSAT) is a test designed to help students practice for the SAT. It is also used to determine eligibility for scholarships awarded by the National Merit Scholarship Corporation. 

    On Wednesday, October 11th, twenty-four GWCS students took the PSATs at GWCS. In addition to having the opportunity to practice taking a standardized test, many students were surprised to learn that it was their responsibility to arrive prepared to take the test including: eat a good breakfast, bring a snack, arrive on time, bring sharpened No. 2 pencils with good erasers as well as a calculator and to not bring electronic devices.  (Note: It is your responsibility to familiarize yourself with rules and regulations for all standardized tests.  This is particularly important when you are taking a standardized test at a site other than GWCS.)

    As students look ahead to taking SATs, Subject Tests, APs or ACTs during junior and senior years, please remember to consult the testing websites for all you need to know about being prepared for these tests!

    GWCS offers SATs on four Saturdays during the school year.  Because GWCS is such a small testing site and our location is open to the public, we fill up very fast!  If you register and you do not see GW Community School on the testing site options, it is either because we are already full or we are not a designated testing site for that month.  REGISTER EARLY!  

    SATs proctored at GWCS in 2017-2018

    • October 7, 2017 (SAT & Subject Tests)
    • March 10, 2018 (SAT)

    The Student of the Week this week is OLIVIA POWELL for demonstrating the GWCS value of TEAM PLAY

    Olivia is new to GWCS but has immediately immersed herself in the school values. She helped clean up Sr. Torres’ room when no one else would. Olivia always shares her school supplies with other students, even her top-quality art supplies! As an excellent artist she makes exemplar work for Ms. Kohler’s class binder, like her Energy Pyramid for example. Olivia also took on the administrator job in Ms. Kohler’s class; she tracks absent students, manages their missed work, and types up a running Word Doc with notes from each class which is accessible for all students.  In all her classes she is the go-to-girl when students have questions, helping all that need her assistance. To quote Olivia herself: “Working together is not only the best way to form a bond, but also the most efficient way to make friends that will feel like family.” Olivia is a bright, considerate, and extremely helpful team player! 

    Check out the 'Student of the Week' bulletin board near Mr. Pereira's classroom. Each week a student is recognized for his or her demonstration of one of the eight GWCS Values.

    GWCS VALUES: LEARNING, SERVICE, KINDNESS, EXCELLENCE, RESPONSIBILITY, INVESTMENT, TEAM PLAY, INTELLECTUAL CURIOSITY

    The Student of the Week this week is KIAN MONETTE for demonstrating the GWCS value of KINDNESS

    Kian is our first Student of Week for the 2017-2018 school year!  Although the teachers had no trouble voting on Kian as Student of the Week, they were challenged when asked to choose just one GWCS value that he most represented.  A few observations shared by some of Kian's teachers:   

    "Kian demonstrates intellectual curiosity by asking questions one day, and then asking follow up questions the next day when he’s had time to think about it."  
    "Kian is super helpful to his classmates in Spanish, effortlessly demonstrating the value of kindness to all."  
    "Kian demonstrates responsibility by taking the time to get help with computer issues."  
    "Kian eagerly volunteered to help with the freshman camping trip, demonstrating investment on one of the first days of school." 

    Check out the 'Student of the Week' bulletin board near Mr. Pereira's classroom. Each week a student is recognized for his or her demonstration of one of the eight GWCS Values.

    GWCS VALUES: LEARNING, SERVICE, KINDNESS, EXCELLENCE, RESPONSIBILITY, INVESTMENT, TEAM PLAY, INTELLECTUAL CURIOSITY

    HIKE THE MARYLAND HEIGHTS TRAIL...

    THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 21, 2017

    Join Dr. G. and Senor Torres on Thursday, September 21st as they scale the Maryland Heights Trail in Harper's Ferry, WV.  Okay, technically speaking, the trail is on the Maryland side of the Potomac River (hence the trail's name), but we will park in Harper's Ferry, cross the river via the pedestrian bridge, and hike the trail.  The total hiking distance will be 5-6 miles.  The trail offers an amazing view of Harper's Ferry and the lower Shenandoah River.  This hike involves hiking up, hiking around at the top, and hiking back down.  In other words, it ain't flat.  We will meet at GWCS at 9:45 am, depart at 10 am, and return by 4 pm.  Be sure to bring a lunch, a water bottle, appropriate shoes for hiking (no open-toed shoes), and weather-appropriate clothing.  We can accommodate up to 12 people.  Additional details will be on the soon-to-be-released sign up genius ~ stay tuned. A completed permission form is required to participate in this trip.  Please obtain one from Dr. G. or Senor Torres.

    Looking at Next Week... September 9-17, 2017

    Thank you, GWCS Coyotes, for a fantastic first week of the 2017-2018 school year!  It was a jam-packed four days with orientation, technology prep, pretests, catching up with ole' friends, making new friends, and the greatest challenge - waking up early!
