The Student of the Week is LUKE HEILMAN for demonstrating the GWSC value of INTELLECTUAL CURIOSITY!

Luke is omnipresent in his classes. Luke is driven by mastering the information available in every class, and demonstrating his mastery in class discussions. In particular, his leadership in discussions on Dante’s Inferno has been exemplary. Dr. Garon was not kidding when he said “Luke should consider teaching it the next time it is offered.’ His insightful participation in Geometry class last week caused Mr. Goldie to ask him if he thought he was ready to ‘snatch the pebble from the teacher’s hand?’ Luke said nothing. He was definitely thinking, ‘Yes. Yes I am.’

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
