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

STAUNTON SHAKESPEARE FALL TRIP SCHEDULE

"I have been to hundreds of theatre events in my lifetime. I have seen Shakespeare performed on stages from Los Angeles to London. I am an aficionado. I may not be the best judge, but I say this in all sincerity: The Blackfriars Theatre at the American Shakespeare Center in Staunton Virginia is the home of the finest productions of classical theatre that I have ever seen. There. I said it."  ~Richard Goldie
