Next Week at GWCS... June 6 - 13, 2015

STUDENT OF THE WEEK...

The Student of the Week is ERIC NELSON for demonstrating the GWCS value of LEARNING.

"Eric has been a great communicator in class. Asking all the right questions, continuing to engage regardless of the level of difficulty and also actively seeks out work whether or not homework was given so that he can practice at home.  Additionally, if a tangent occurs in class and we get off track, Eric encouragingly asks his classmates to stay on course and to continue with the classwork."

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

PAC HELP NEEDED...

Fundraising Committee needs Volunteers for the 2015/16 school year!

The Fundraising committee is in charge of the Annual Fund, which raises money for the GW Community School Foundation Scholarship Program, and the Online Auction, our largest fundraiser.  The auction raised over $15K in 2015, and all funds go towards student activities (example:  The amazing OBX trips!) and school wide technology (example:  moving to the Cloud this year, projectors and speakers for classrooms).  Every dollar raised goes a long way towards adding value to our students!

We are looking for volunteers for the fundraising committee.  The auction committee will "meet" via email a few times this summer to work on strategy for the auction.  If you have any experience working in fundraising, or if you just want to try something new, please contact me at DeiadreRauch@me.com.  All are welcome regardless of experience level or time commitment...we have spots for all!
