LOOKING AT NEXT WEEK: November 12-26, 2016


STUDENT OF THE WEEK...

The student of the week is SABRINA CASTRO for demonstrating the GWCS value of  INTELLECTUAL CURIOSITY!

Sabrina created an amazing 3-D model of the human skin out of clay, pipe cleaners, paint, and glue. Stop by Ms. Newton's room to see it and learn! 

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

GWCS FOUNDATION SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAM...


ANNUAL FUND OPEN NOW THROUGH DECEMBER


PLEASE GIVE!


The Annual Fund at GWCS has been active for over three years, with all money raised going to fund scholarships for current or prospective GWCS students.  The GW Community Foundation was established in 2014 by a group of parents who saw a need to support scholarships at the school.  Many of the parents had transformational experiences with their own children at the school and wanted to make sure that this opportunity was available to other students.  The Foundation has given out three scholarships since its initial start, and plans on giving out many more!
Donations can be made online at the foundation website:  www.gwcommunityfoundation.com.  Click on "Support Us." You can also make a donation by check made out to GW Community School Foundation.


If you have any questions about the Annual Fund, please contact:
Deiadre Rauch, GWCS Fundraising Chair
deiadrerauch@me.com  


Please consider making a donation of any size to our annual fund!  We are aiming, as always, for 100% participation.  Donations made to the GW Community Foundation are tax deductible.
Thank you for your support!
