SIGN UP FOR STREAM CLEANUP

On the last Wednesday of each month*, Ms. Kohler hosts 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. 

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.

SPRING BREAK TRIP TO BELIZE

As our world becomes increasingly interconnected, it is critical for our students to become more culturally aware, explore new ideas and grow their potential. Students who experience this opportunity will grow their social skills, connect to their studies outside of the classroom and set themselves apart when applying to college and their future careers. Students can also earn credit on tour by creating their own online research projects. I am inviting all of the GWCS students, and parents are welcome to travel as well, so there will be a very limited number of spots.
