Grade level Field trip fees

2nd semester field trip fees for 8th grade have been refunded through MyPaymentPlus.


6th and 7th grade already participated in one field trip this semester (7th grade was an in-house experience as part of our PBL launch). The remaining balance will be transferred to next year's field trip fund (6th grade will transfer to 7th grade and 7th grade will transfer to 8th grade). If you have a special circumstance, please reach out to me (JW.Mozley@gcpsk12.org) and we can work on an alternative.

Field Day T-shirt

The order for field day t-shirts was cancelled. Parents who had already ordered t-shirts were refunded this week through MyPaymentsPlus.

End of the Year Processes (including Yearbook pick up, etc..)

We are currently working on updating our end-of-year processes and will communicate to you when students will be allowed to access to the building to pick up personal belongings or return books or other items to the school.


This will certainly happen after the shelter-in-place order has been lifted. Stay tuned for more details.
