GCA NEWSLETTER - November 2022

Big picture

Good afternoon,

November is a great time to focus on thankfulness! This November I encourage you to look for things to be thankful for every day. At GCA we are thankful for our students and their families. We are thankful for the incredible responsibility to partner with families to educate their children. God has been good to us and we have been blessed at GCA!

Thank you to all the parents and family members who went with us to A-Maize-ing Acres! We had a wonderful time and are looking forward to our next field trip in February.

Have a wonderful month and please don't hesitate to reach out if you have any questions or concerns.

God Bless,

Heather Barber
