The Students of the Week this week are Cate HartnettDelia O’Grady, and Lizzie Weber for demonstrating the GWCS value of EXCELLENCE

Delia, Lizzie and Cate (Fresh-off of leading the GWCS girls to the ISSAC championship) went to the league all-star game, and turned it into a GWCS clinic on basketball excellence!  They all played high quality basketball and their squad won the game going away.  Parents from other ISSAC school could be heard saying that the GWCS girls were clearly out-playing every other school.  In the end, with all three GWCS girls dominating the game, Cate was voted the MVP of the all-stars with Lizzie and Delia right behind!

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
