Shared Calendar

Ms. Acree has recently shared an Outlook calendar with all of you. We are working to place activities and events on this calendar. If you are planning an event or activity, please remember to first secure approval. Once approved, please contact Ms. Acree or Ms. Rivera to place the activity/event on the calendar. This will assist everyone in monitoring the events we have at GCA. Thank you for working with us on this!

GCA Afterschool PREP Academy

Beginning in October, GCA will offer after school tutoring for students on Tuesdays (English Language Arts) and Thursdays (Math). It is the expectation of CSUSA that all teachers participate in tutoring or Saturday School opportunities to assist with targeting the needs of our student population. Teachers participating in this six week opportunity are compensated at an hourly rate. Please let me know if you are interested and can commit in tutoring for the October-November window.
