Neither girls nor players, but pictured and adored:  Coaches Goldie & Connelly

Cate, Lizzie, Gabby, Delia, Laura, Kelley, Elizabeth, Mattie, Emily, Evelyn, and Cecilia have put together a fantastic season. Not only are they the first girls’ team to win the coveted, steak dinner, they are the first GWCS team to go undefeated in a full season of ISSAC games. They have secured the top seed in the league playoffs, and they are two victories away from winning the first ISSAC Championship in school history (after coming-up just a few points short last February)! They have one home game left, next week, so if you want to see what excellence looks like on the basketball court, don’t miss it! Also, if you come to the game, Delia promises not to travel!

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
