Next Week at GWCS...
May 23-31, 2015

STUDENTS OF THE WEEK...

The Students of the Week are Michael D'Arcangelo, Scott Morgan and Josh Bane for representing the GWCS Value of TEAM PLAY!  Every day basketball begins at 8:00 am, but if you want to get started with these three you have to get there a whole lot earlier than that!  Michael, Scotty and Josh are typically in the gym before 7:30 am every day!  As a result of their dedication to team play they have all made significant improvements in their abilities and skills. 

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
