    SENIOR MEMORY BOARD MAKING PARTY...

    BREAKING NEWS! 

    Date Change...

    Tuesday, April 25, 2017 (not 5/2)
    6:30 pm - 8:00 pm
    RSVP HERE 

    Due to unforeseeable circumstances, we’ve had to change the date of the Memory Board Party at GWCS!  The party will now be held this coming Tuesday, April 25th from 6:30 pm – 8:00 pm (not 5/2).  We know it’s short notice, but don’t miss this chance to have a fun get-together sharing memories and pictures with other senior parents and seniors!

    check your email (4/20) for further details!

    If you haven't started your Memory Board (or aren’t sure what a Memory Board is), no worries!   This is a great time to see examples of Memory Boards, explore ideas, find your inspiration and get started.  If you have already started the project, you can use this time to keep going.  The goal of the evening is to have fun!

    The Memory Board tradition at GWCS is a wonderful way to highlight the achievements and good times of graduating seniors on their special day. The boards are displayed in a dedicated Memory Board room at the Masonic Temple during the GWCS graduation and reception, and gives others a chance to know the graduates and what has been important in their lives.  Memory Boards are a tradition at GWCS and truly make the graduation day special for everyone. 

    Please RSVP:

    Click Here to RSVP by Monday, 4/24 indicating whether or not you are able to attend, so we can plan for you.   See you then and there!
