b-banner-STUDENT OF THE WEEK.JPG
2018.01.05_Josh Bellows_RESPONSIBILITY.jpg

The Student of the Week this week is JOSH BELLOWS for demonstrating the GWCS value of RESPONSIBILITY.

To fill the open space in his senior schedule, Josh elected to become a Teacher’s Assistant, and he takes his job seriously.  Josh’s professional attitude belies his youth.  Josh is always involved in class discussions and class research.  This week he volunteered to help set-up videos for the students who were waiting to leave on the field trip.  Josh is always willing to help other students with homework and computer issues.  Josh is more than a TA, he is unofficially part of the school staff.  He is also able to track-down Mr. Goldie faster than anyone else at school!

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
