2018.02.23_Laura Massey_TEAM PLAY.jpg

The Student of the Week this week is LAURA MASSEY for demonstrating the GWCS value of TEAM PLAY.

Laura embodies Team Play both in and outside the classroom. When in class, she doesn’t hesitate to help her peers with assignments, or to explain concepts to other students. She assists in cultivating a productive learning environment by always staying engaged with the lesson at hand, and by asking and answering questions when she can. More than this, Laura always brings with her to school an enthusiastic attitude that is contagious. Quick to give a smile and have a conversation, her cheerful energy is a great boost to morale around school. She is an invaluable member of the GWCS pack, and this kind of exceptional Team Play is what makes her the Student of the Week.

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
