PAC ONLINE AUCTION ENDS ON WEDNESDAY @ 10PM!

February 11 - 25, 2015

We are nearing the end of our PAC Online Auction!  We have made over $12,000 in donations so far; getting close to our goal of $15,000!  

We have had some great new additions since the beginning of the auction, including a donation from Convergence (the company that designed the GWCS website) for the design and creation of a new website, valued at $6,000!  This would be an amazing buy for someone looking for a new website!   Pam Matthews has donated another beautiful quilt, and we have some new restaurant certificates.  

We only have a few Buy a Spots left for Bunko, English High Tea and the "Craft Beer and Bites" Event, get one quickly before they sell out!

Check out all of the great items on http://www.32auctions.com/gwcommunityschool2015

Don't forget that the auction will end on Wednesday, February 25th at 10:00 p.m.

QUARTERLy pARENT PAC MEETING:  

YIKES! SNOWED OUT AGAIN!

CALLING ALL PARENTS!  As the February 18th PAC meeting was cancelled due to school closure, we are trying once again!  Please note that the meeting has now been rescheduled for Monday, February 23rd  from 6:30 pm to 8:30 pm in the café. This is an all-hands general PAC meeting where we will have some fun in our main session hearing school updates from Ms. Warden, and from Deiadre Rauch and her auction team of parent volunteers, exciting auction news.  After that, we will be breaking up into small groups to ask for your ideas and help with specifics for future projects and events, including graduation, facilities and OBX (Out of the Box experiential educational activities for freshmen and sophomores).  Dinner and libations will start at 6:30 p.m. followed by the meeting at 7:00. We hope to see you all there!

R.E.A.L. TERM INTERNSHIPS

Fridays Only from April 10 - June 6, 2015

So far, approximately 50% of the GWCS juniors and seniors have been placed with a host company for this spring.  It's the other 50% that we could really use your help with! Parents, could you please consider hosting a student at your place of employment?  Talk with your your boss, your neighbors, your friends, and even locations you frequent that may be a potential R.E.A.L. Term host. 

WE NEED YOUR HELP!

Below is a list of the interest areas where we would like to place students but do not have any viable leads:

  • Aerospace/Civil/Mechanical Engineering
  • Physics
  • Drone Technology
  • Graphic Art
  • Sales/Marketing

Following is a list of possible hosts we have been waiting for a reply/commitment from.  Maybe you know someone, or have a similar industry contact that would be willing to host an internship.  

Historically, when you have a direct relationship with a host, they are more inclined to say YES!

  • The Tech Shop, Arlington, Va (Cutting Edge Equipment)
  • Studio V, Herndon, Va (Music Recording Studio)
  • Sun Design and Build, Burke, Va. (Interior Design)

Send all leads to Kristen Stombres at stombreskl@gwcommunityschool.com
