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
