The Student of the Week this week is EVELYN SCHULMAN for demonstrating the GWCS value of LEARNING.
Evelyn has been putting 110% into all of her classes, participating actively, completing work with diligence, asking honest questions, and pushing her potential as far as it will go. Her teachers note both her positive attitude and the way that has led to noticeable improvements over the first month 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
