Greeting Students and Families,

It is so hard to believe that we are embarking on winter break. This will be my final newsletter for the 2018  year! We are more than 1/3 of the way through and shortly after we return from the holiday break we will be preparing to celebrate the hundredth day of school!

We have so much to be thankful for.  As I look back on the past few months I’ve seen and been told that many students are making tremendous academic and attendance gains.  I would love to mention those students because they deserve to be recognized. Starting next month I will do just that, but for this month, Mr. Hazlett wanted me to give a shout out to Calie Flynn and Chad Harrington. He states that these 2 students are “superstars with amazing class participation and who are making great strides while leading the class through their effort and contributions”. Ms. Nowakowski recognizes one of her kindergarten students. She states that “M. Daviau is a strong participant who always attends class and shows much effort in all subjects.” Stay tuned next month for more students who go above and beyond!!  We love to celebrate student success!!!

As for our LC’s, we know that our student’s academic successes would not be possible or as great in number without the support from our learning coaches. Therefore, GCVS educators and faculty thank you for your Amazing Support!!!!

Just a reminder regarding student absences: Please email  anytime your child is going to absent. It would be great to email as soon as you know of his/her absence.  We will be calling or emailing if we fail to receive a notification. This is for the safety and concern of all students.
