Together We Can
June 6, 2022
Last week, I presented an end-of-year update on the progress made towards the recommendations in the PCG report to the Board of Education. I am so proud of the progress that has been made this year in meeting the recommendations. Thank you to the GPS staff, parents, students and Greenwich community for all of your support.
A reminder that next Tuesday, June 14, The Office of Special Education and Student Supports and the Special Education Advisory Council (SEAC) are hosting the second in-person event with Dr. Lydia Soifer on Executive Functioning and Working Memory. Please come join us at Greenwich High School's Student Center at 7:00 PM!

What We Are Seeing 👀 Around the Schools
Ecosystems at Riverside
A Riverside classroom welcomes a visit by Assistant Principal Ms. Safiya Key. Students in second grade are learning about ecosystems and the interdependence between plants and animals. As part of this unit, students study pollinators, including bees who help to pollinate the flowers in our own school's yard.
