Elementary

Slush! 

Friday the elementary school will serve Slushies for .75¢.  You may also purchase a slush ticket for $7.50 to keep in the classroom. We always try to have a flavor that is free from red dye for students.

 

Summer Math and Reading

LAST CALL!  Did your child complete a summer math and reading program this summer?  Whether it was a Vacation Station or the forms printed offline, please turn in the completion certificate or your participation sheets.  Mrs. Arnst will be taking these students on a picnic in the spring for their efforts. Great job!

Senior Pictures Taken Here – Sep 15, 2021

In the past few years it has become increasingly difficult for high school Seniors to obtain a head and shoulder picture for the yearbook. This year GCS is having Photo Factory come to the school on September 15th to take yearbook pictures for our Senior Class.  The ENTIRE class will have a school picture taken (at no cost) to be used in the yearbook.  Additional copies will be available for purchase through Photo Factory. 

PLEASE NOTE: Girls will need to wear a nice modest blouse for their picture and boys will need to wear a collared shirt and tie.
