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!


7th PERIOD CLUBS & ELECTIVES...

Get excited for 7th period clubs and electives most of which will begin Monday, September 18th!  Next week you will receive  detailed descriptions of all the 7th period options and a sign up sheet.  We encourage all students to try at least one (or more) and remember that you don't have to commit to an elective until you have had a chance to try it out.  

 

Following is a preview to some of this year's 7th period offerings:

  • History in Movies
  • Improv/Theatre
  • Music Club
  • Robotics
  • Co-Ed Soccer

ROBOTICS ELECTIVE...

This Saturday, September 9th, is the FTC Robotics Game Reveal Kickoff at GWCS from 10:30 am - 1:30 pm.  This 7th period elective will actually start next week!  Saturday's Game Reveal is the perfect opportunity to find out what FTC Robotics is all about!   


COYOTE TRACKS & COYOTEWEB...

Most Tuesdays GWCS families will receive an emailed status report - which we call Coyote Tracks. This weekly status report lists all of the student's classes and includes their current grade for each class and a comment from each teacher.

Parents/guardians and students may also access 'Tracks'on CoyoteWeb which is the GWCS academic portal.  Students all learned how to access their CoyoteWeb account  during orientation this week.  Parents/guardians, if you are new to CoyoteWeb, CLICK HERE to learn how to access your account. 


GWCS SPIRIT WEAR...

This is just a teaser... soon you will be able to order the 2017-2018 GWCS t shirt!  Every year Mr. Goldie chooses a design that reflects the number of years GWCS has been in operation.  Can you guess what year we are in based on the design?
