McKinney-Vento Survey

All G-C families are requested to complete the short survey found at the link below regardless of residency status. The information provided in this survey will only be used to determine students who may need assistance based on their current housing status.

Parent Teacher Organization

PTO: We have a wonderful Parent Teacher Organization. They have been so generous in helping buy some new things we need for the unique year we are facing, including: lanyards for face masks, additional traffic cones for our car line, and updated recess equipment for students and teachers. There will be more info from them on how and when they will meet. This year, we will need to focus on low or no contact fundraising options.
