b-banner-STUDENT OF THE WEEK.JPG
Christian Bowman.JPG

The Student of the Week this week is CHRISTIAN BOWMAN for demonstrating the GWCS value of INVESTMENT! 

Christian always maintains excellent grades, but that is only part of what he brings to the table.  After finishing another successful season of robotics, Christian has thrown himself into the hard-working world of GWCS theatre by accepting an important role in one of the four one-acts currently in production.  If the ‘Student of the Week’ award was strictly based on grades, then Christian would be a candidate every week.  He is the winner this week  because he knows that being successful at school is more than just grades!

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

GRADUATION QUILTS - PIN & SEW...

VOLUNTEERS NEEDED!

quilt.jpeg

Every year PAC parents sew a twin size quilt for each graduate.  Ms. Warden personally selects a meaningful fabric print for each graduate's quilt. The print selected is based on the students' interests and personality. Parent volunteers sew the print fabric to a twin size comforter.

Before graduation, the quilts are laid out at school for an autograph party. Students, teachers, staff, and even alumni  happen to stop by, sign the back of the quilts (much like you would a yearbook) with fabric markers. The quilts are presented to each graduate at the graduation ceremony by fellow underclassmen.  It's a very meaningful GWCS tradition!

No sewing experience necessary.   Contact Linda Campbell if you have any questions.  Click the button below to sign up for one or all the pin & sew sessions!
