Fall is in the air! This is the time of the year that we turn to warm thoughts and gathering together after a summer of travels and being apart. GCVS is celebrating fall with Back-to-School picnics in four locations on Friday, September 8th, 11:00 am-2:00 pm! Picnics will be held at Dean Park in Shrewsbury, Danehy Park in Cambridge, Forest Park in Springfield, and the Midway Recreation Area on Cape Cod. This is a great chance for our GCVS family to gather together to meet other families and our staff! Bring a picnic lunch for your family. There will be games and activities – lots of fun is in store for all ages!

Looking for your students’ hard copy materials and supplies? You can pick them up at the picnics! We will have “goodie bags” for students of instructional supplies. In order to make sure we have a sufficient amount available at all of our sites, we are asking that you complete a survey to let us know what grades your students are in and which picnic site you plan to attend so we can have materials available for you at the correct location. To access the survey, click here. If you are unable to attend a picnic, please indicate that on the survey and supplies will be mailed to you. Please fill out the survey by Tuesday, September 5th, so we can adequately prepare for you.

Here’s a copy of the flyer with the information about our picnics to post at home as a reminder. Back to School Picnics 2017

Have a great long weekend and our teachers are looking forward to working with students again on Tuesday! Regards, Dr. Houle
