The Student of the Week this week is JONATHAN SCINTO for demonstrating the GWCS value of INVESTMENT!

Jonathan is known for getting down to business.  His attitude of investment permeates his academics as well as his community interactions.  As soon as Jonathan enters a classroom he is ready to learn.  He follows instructions, turns assignments in on time, asks thoughtful questions, and completes classwork efficiently.  Jonathan is an active learner - not a dawdler.  Ms. Kohler recently described two beautiful and completely edible 3-D models of plant and animal cells that Jonathan created over the winter break.  Because he's an active and engaged learner, Jonathan is always eager and often available to help teachers with classroom tasks and caring for lab animals.  He also signs up for every community service opportunity offered at GWCS and participates with interest and enthusiasm.  During lunch Jonathan is a dedicated Smasher.  His positive energy and giddiness is contagious.  Teachers and students alike appreciate having a friend in Jonathan.   

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
